Hoa Nguyen, aka Christopher Royce Shepherd

6 year old boy was admittedly shaken by mother Royce Elaine Clark. The next day he was unresponsive and taken to a hospital where he died. Murder and child abuse charges were filed, but later dismissed when prosecutors felt they couldn't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Clark caused the fatal injuries.
