NEW YORK (PIX11) – Loved ones will save their final goodbyes Friday to an 11-month-old boy killed allegedly by his mother after she reached a “breaking point.”

The funeral for Kiam Felix Jr. is scheduled for 10 a.m. at Evergreen Baptist Church in Brooklyn, according to a family spokesman.

Felix died July 6. Investigators said the little boy’s mother wrapped him so tightly in a bed sheet that he could not move or breathe, then left him alone in a bed at their Queens home for about a half hour.

Police were called to the home for a report of a child who was not breathing. Felix was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Nicole Kelly, 22, was arrested July 7 in connection with her son’s untimely death.

She allegedly dressed the child’s body in a white suit , took a picture of him and posted it to her Facebook page, detectives said.
