Sheila O’Leary broke down during trial while hearing the 911 call she made after her son died from starvation.

O’Leary is accused of neglecting her child and starving him to death. If found guilty, she could get life in prison.

The state said O’Leary refused to give Ezra, her 18-month-old son, food, water, or medical care. Which is why Ezra starved to death.
