Mom charged with murder
By SUN MEDIA
TORONTO -- A baby boy was found dead in an SUV at a Mississauga office building yesterday and his mother is now charged with his murder.
A 911 call was made just before 8 a.m. by someone inside the underground parking garage at the Mississauga Executive Centre.
Soon after, officers discovered the lifeless body of Jadon Bernard, who was only 18 months old, inside a silver Honda CRV parked in the garage.
Investigators allege the tot's mom, Nadine Bernard, 34, killed her son and then attempted to end her own life.
"This was a cold, calculated, planned and premeditated murder of an infant," a sickened Insp. Norm English said. "This is a very sad and tragic investigation for all of us."
Jadon was pronounced dead at the scene.
The little boy's mom, who is alleged to have made the 911 call that led to the grisly discovery, was taken into custody at the scene and later appeared emotionless in Brampton court
Nadine Bernard was taken to hospital initially, but she did not suffer any serious injuries and was promptly released back into police custody.
She was later charged with first-degree murder.
Police have spoken to the estranged dad of the baby and he is "devastated," English said. Const. Wayne Patterson confirmed Nadine Bernard has two other children, who sources claim are 12 and 14 and have a different father.
