    A mother caring for a baby boy with a congenital defect poured bleach down his feeding tube so she could get a ‘good night’s sleep’, a court heard.

    Brooke Evelyn Lucas, 26, sobbed in the Supreme Court on Wednesday as the facts of the disturbing case were read out.

    Her 13-month-old son, William, had been lying in his cot crying late into the evening at their Ellenbrook home on the north east fringes of Perth in December 2018.

    The child was born with Pierre Robin sequence, a birth condition which can obstruct oxygen intake and requires around-the-clock care.

    On that evening she went to the laundry and returned to the cot with a bottle of Exit Mould – a household product commonly used for cleaning bathroom tiles.

    She poured the toxic chemical compound into William’s baby formula and then drip-fed him down his feeding tube directly into his stomach, 7News reported.

    Lucas later confessed to police that she ‘needed a break’ and ‘wanted to get a good night’s sleep’.

     

     

    The court heard that she sat and watched the helpless child struggle as he endured vomiting and seizures, before eventually called an ambulance.

    William vomited about a dozen times in the back of the ambulance and had to remain in hospital for 17 nights.

    Miraculously, he survived the horrifying ordeal and was taken to live with his grandparents.

    When Lucas called triple-0, she falsely told the operator it was William’s older sister who was responsible for the poisoning.

    But two weeks after the incident she claimed responsibility, telling police she thought the bleach would help ‘settle’ him and that she felt ‘relieved and relaxed’ at the time.

    After her arrest, Lucas spent time at a secure psychiatric facility.

    She was initially charged with attempted murder but later pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of endangering her son’s life.

    Lucas was scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday but that has now been pushed back to Friday as the Judge needed more time to consider the verdict in light of the new details.
