She is currently being held at Delaware County Jail without bond.

The coroner confirmed that Wihebrink’s 2-year-old son’s death was heat-related.

In court documents, Britni Wihebrink admitted that she had started drinking around 11 a.m. to cure a hangover from the night before. She told officers that she had a “bad drinking problem”. Wihebrink confessed that she did not remember how many drinks she had or what she did that day. However, police found 7 empty Jim Beam bottles at her apartment.

The authorities arrived at Salem Place Apartments after Wihebrink called 911.

Jaxon Stults was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.
