Victim of Infanticide. One of nine siblings (Barbara Ann, Jennifer Lewis, Jonathan, Joseph A. Jr, Mary Frances, Michael Raymond (adopted), Nathan, Tami Lynn & Timothy M.) murdered by their mother, Mary Beth Tinning, who for years had claimed SIDS as the cause of death. Finally caught, she was charged and convicted only for the death of daughter Tami Lynne and sentenced to twenty years to life. She was paroled and released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Bedford Hills, New York on August 21, 2018. The case is the subject of a 1989 book by Joyce Egginton entitled "From Cradle to Grave."
