Lesser charges? Unless she says that she was killing him there is nothing that can be done, how sad. Our children are only on loan to us & God can take them at any time but what I don't understand is why these little babies' have to suffer before going to heaven. She should be put to death & so should anyone else who kills a child.

All I can say that what goes around comes around, and she will get what she has coming to her. Seems to me that its very strange that her husband that was a witness came up dead and now all the chagers for murder is gone on her. Just saying that something doesnt seem right here, But again there is nothing right about this whole story. A child was killed here and NO ONE is going to have to pay for this, Just wrong.

Just remember " Karma " is a bitch and it will come back in full circle and she will get what she deserves.

this is bunch of shit if she didn't want to be a parent then why adopt a child? If I was this little boy's birth mother I would be so upset for her killing my boy even through the birth mother gave her son up for adoption don't mean she don't think about him or love him any less. This lady should pay and get the first degree murder charge

What nut case could possibly disagree with Mawmaw's comment? How could anyone hurt a child much less kill them? If she didn't want him why not let someone have him who would love and nurture him. At least his birth mother loved him enough to give him up for what she probably thought would be a better life. This is so sad. This woman should never be allowed to come in contact with another human being. Trash.

While I agree with you 100%, I couldn't drown her...could you? That is why we have a death penalty, the only fault that it has is all of the appeals that are involved. I say, put them to death immediately, just as they did & then even that would be too good for them. Poor children, they don't stand a chance. If they cannot depend on their parents to protect them they are screwed.
