A Texas woman who claims her military husband's deployment overseas left her too stressed to care for their three young children, one of whom died
Tiffany Nicole Klapheke is charged with three felony counts of injury to a child in connection with her 22-month-old daughter's death and the severe neglect of her two other daughters, ages six months and three years,
The report also shows that the toddler weighed only 17.5 pounds and her body had chemical burns, indicating the child was exposed to human waste.
She also said she tried committing suicide three weeks ago but a friend stopped her.
'I'm so just stressed out and depressed, and I just need help taking care of them, and I don't have any help,' she told the station.
Klapheke recalled her impatience over her children's potty training, saying she left her toddler in the crib in her own urine for nearly a week.
'I just got tired of always changing the sheets, so it was on there a little bit longer than it should have been,' she said about her deceased daughter's exposure to human waste.
