It`s an unimaginable story. In his 17-months of existence Lucas Ruiz battled health issues, but those did not claim his life. Instead Ruiz was poisoned at least twice. The baby didn`t recover from the latest incident. Now his mother, 20-year-old Erika Wigstrom, is behind bars. She`s booked with first degree murder. Plaquemines Parish deputies say she confessed to injecting hand sanitizer in his feeding tube in her Belle Chasse home. Lucas` autopsy showed his blood alcohol level was .28%, well over three times the legal limit for an adult.
