A BABY who loved to eat mashed potatoes and banana was allegedly starved to death by his mother – as three other kids in her custody “had meth in their systems.”

Officials said Wolf had custody of five kids at the time of nine-month-old Karson Wolf’s death in June.
When medical responders got to the home, Karson was dead.
An autopsy found the baby died from chronic starvation, the Justice Department said.

The other kids on the property in Wolf’s care were removed from the home.
It was determined that three of the other kids had methamphetamine in their systems.
According to Karson’s heartbreaking obituary, the infant was born “with big brown eyes and a full head of hair.”
His great-great-grandma gave Karson the name “Naagua-sh,” which means “Going Home.”

“He was very alert and liked playing with his sisters and brothers,” the obituary reads. “He also liked listening to music with his mom and watching cartoons.”
Karson enjoyed “sitting in his chair and playing with his toys” – and loved corn, mashed potatoes, and bananas.
“Even though his time on Earth was brief, he touched so many lives and will live in our heart forever,” his family wrote.
Prosecutors said Wolf has been hit with the charges in Indian County, or a self-governing Native American community in the US.
She’s being held at the McClean County Jail in Washburn.
