Authorities are considering filing criminal charges against a mother in Dunn who accidentally suffocated her newborn son.Paramedics were called to Destiny Judd's apartment on December 26, 2009. She told investigators she fell asleep and when she woke up her son was pinned between her back and the sofa - unresponsive.

An autopsy made public on Thursday indicated 7-week-old Jordan Judd died from asphyxiation.

He is reportedly her second child to die that way.

According to reports, in October 2006 Judd accidentally suffocated a 5-week-old infant she was sleeping with.

But her neighbors say she is a good mother.

"Well I've seen her come outside with them, I've taken refreshments over to the kids, and she has taken good care of them good from what I can tell," neighbor Karion Bell said.

Police say Judd was warned not to sleep with her children. They'll decide whether to file charges after social service workers complete an investigation.
