During a fight over missing drugs, a Monroe County man allegedly smothered his 6-month-old son last year after texting threatening messages to the baby’s mother, according to new charges filed against the couple Wednesday.

In the texts, Christian Tuliszewski allegedly told Samantha DeFrancesco that he would starve their two children, leave them home alone and suffocate them if he didn’t get the drugs she had hid, according to the court records.

The two were already facing child endangerment charges in the May 6, 2018, death of Brady Tuliszewski. State police say they allegedly used heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine in the hours before the baby’s death and then attempted to cover up their drug use.

An autopsy found no signs of illness. Cuts to the inside of the baby’s mouth and bruises to his face were similar to those found in children who have been intentionally smothered, court records say.

With the new evidence, which included additional forensic testing and the text messages, a forensic pathologist determined the baby died of complications of asphyxia and the manner of death was ruled homicide.

The investigation also determined Tuliszewski was the last one with the baby.

On Wednesday, Tuliszewski was charged with one count of homicide and DeFrancesco, was charged with third-degree murder, with authorities saying, “she has the duty to protect the victim from harm, including deadly harm from threats.” In the new charges, her last name is spelled DeFrancesca.

Tuliszewski and DeFrancesco, both 24, were charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy to hinder apprehension. In addition, Tuliszewski is charged with tampering with evidence for allegedly attempting to delete his messages.

According to a criminal complaint file in court:

The couple, who have another child, admitted to using heroin, meth and marijuana for months while both children were present.

Text messages found on their cellphones showed that they agreed to mislead police about their drug use and other texts revealed they argued over drugs.

DeFrancesco claimed she paid for the drugs though Tuliszewski used most of them.

Five days before the baby was found dead, Tuliszewski accused DeFrancesco of hiding the drugs.

"He’s not eating until I find it,” Tuliszewski texted. “I’ll suffocate him if I don’t get my [expletive];” and “I’m going out, leaving the kids here so either leave work or they’re here by themselves.”

Police say that early on the day the baby died, the text argument was about Tuliszewski taking money from DeFrancesco’s account to buy meth.

Please leave the politics of pro choice/life out of the comments. It was part of the reason I left last time.
Not to be rude, but I am not worried as to why you left last time, or if you leave again. But why would you? Do conflicting views upset you? Is you position so irrational that your offended by rational approach of the opposing side? I just do not understand why on such important subjects, please want to be close minded and avoid all conversation that apposes your views. Im sorry, but these are subjects that affect the public, and need to be discussed publicly. I you want to hold a personal view, but not vote, or be vocal on it , thats just fine. But when your vote effects my life, my children and my community, then I think its a moral obligation to discuss it.

Whoa wait, this is a torture ritual? I've been doing this on first dates to inspect that the male has good lung genes for our potential offspring for years!

...looking at it now I do understand why I have had no second dates.

Gotta figure this forum is made up of people with deeply held opinions and nobody is willing to back down from them. When certain topics come up that leads, inexorably, to what is called a "Train Wreck" or "Dumpster Fire".

Morbid planned for that. He created a subforum specifically and explicitly for topics including "Politics, Religion and Money". That is the place for this type of argument, not in the crime or media threads.

There is a sticky post in Three Things at https://dreamindemon.com/community/threads/please-read-before-using-this-forum.9/ which reads, in part,
And lastly, although things can get heated, it's just the fucking Internet. Some major flame wars have gone on in Three Things but that is where it stays. Just because you and Member X have an argument over Jesus having a wife, does not mean that it should spill over into the movie forum where a discussion of Godzilla is taking place.

I guess looking in the mirror has inspired this need for sterility. By all means, do humanity a favor and practice what you preach.

Pardon? You are comparing a vasectomy to spinal injury? Not sure exactly what you're trying to imply, poor as your communication skills are, jumping into a conversation that didn't involve you. I assume you are pro choice and crusading against someone who merely wants to enjoy the site rather than use it as a soapbox (especially as you don't know my stance and I'm not in the mood to fan this flame to encourage juvenile speech since we are indulging in the mediocrity of man rather than lecturing the crowd).

If stem cells is your bag, I'm only guessing, it has nothing to do with abortion since stem cells can be acquired elsewhere if you kept up with modern science.

So please stop with the submoronic shit of thinking anything you post here matters. Have fun.

BTW, there is an old friend wanting to talk to you...
