Tragically, she's insane

The court in charge of the case of the infant from a Haredi family who drowned in an Ashdod hotel tub allowed for details to be published, and it turns out the mother - and possibly the father too - is a crackpot:
The mother of a 1-month-old baby who drowned in a hotel jacuzzi earlier this month is suspected of his murder, it was revealed Sunday, after a magistrates court in the coastal city of Ashdod lifted a gag order.

She is suspected of having submerged the infant at least three times, believing that a divine voice was telling her that if she kept him underwater, he would emerge as a grown man, because he was “the Messiah’s son,” the indictment shows.

The mother was initially suspected of criminal wrongdoing, a significantly lesser charge than that of murder, and the father of obstructing justice.

But the father, whose lawyer claimed he had nothing to do with the baby’s death, was released from detention Sunday, and police are reportedly reconsidering the case against him.
I think it'd be a huge mistake to go easy on him. He was obviously just as awful.
The woman, who has a history of mental problems, is currently hospitalized in a psychiatric ward on court orders.

The indictment comes despite a district psychiatrist ruling last week that she was not mentally fit to stand trial.

The couple, both aged 28, have a 7-year-old son and — according to people involved in the case quoted by Hebrew media — had recently succeeded in having another child after years of trying.
And they destroyed that chance altogether now. There's decidedly a valid argument to be made that their parental custody rights should be taken away from them and the child be transferred to the custody of different guardians - preferably non-Haredis - to ensure he'll be able to grow up in a better, more informed environment.

One of the most disturbing things about this whole subject is what was told at the funeral:
Tens of Orthodox women turned out for the baby’s burial, telling their children that the blame for the baby’s death fell on “the infidels.”
Now that is stunningly sick. If that's accurate, they imitated the approach of Islam, to declare anybody not like them "infidels". Which makes this whole case all the more horrifying.
