Mom pleads guilty in death of 3-month-old son

Phillip Robey, 3 months, died Nov. 8, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis mother pleaded guilty Friday in the November 2012 death of her 3-month-old son. 

Bambi Glazebrook pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent, a felony. Glazebrook will be sentenced May 30.

Emergency crews were called to Glazebrook's home for an unresponsive child, and her son, Phillip Robey, was later pronounced dead at Riley Hospital for Children.

Robey was so malnourished at the time of his death, he weighed only 5 pounds and had been kept in a drawer.
 
 
Records from the Indiana Department of Child Services show Glazebrook had a lengthy history with the agency, and DCS received several calls in September and October 2012 about possible neglect just before Phillip Robey’s death on Nov. 8, 2012.
