You people that give this lady sympathy should have your insides removed with a chain

stick them in a car on a hot summer day right next to there dam bag of donuts. Forget
waiting for some brain dead prosecutor to get his fingers out of his coochie. I will tell
you, If the people of OHIO let this lady get away with this. I will no longer have any
respect for people in OHIO.
Its unbelievable- i had no idea people from indiana were so unbelieveably stupid and backwards. YOU need to go back to
school dude, or at least back to jail. you are an absolute idiot
and a pathetic excuse for a human being.

i am wondering where brenda's husband comes in . where is he? does he not support his wife. is he abusive verbably or physically? even verbal abuse can upset a person, so that they hardly know what they are doing. did he expect so much from her that she was mentally messed up?

Was her computer searched for evidence of a coverup...is it possible the baby was left in the car the day before when the neglectful and forgetful Mother came home from work? Did the father see the baby the evening before? Two year olds don't usually sleep through that many door slams, This just doesn't ring right to me! I think the prosecutor rushed to close this one too quickly

Good question. I did a quickie check of local domestic runs by the cops and found nothing. But that means little.

I would assume the media would have done an in-depth background check and would have printed any such problems.

Dozens of friends, neighbors and fellow workers were interviewed and nothing like that mentioned.

You bet. I saw them carrying several boxes from the home on the news.

Sorry to destroy your conspiracy theory but a body decays at a well know rate. The hot car complicated the coroner's pinning time of death very little.

As far as the sleeping habits of the baby I have seen it both ways. Wake at the drop of a pin or sleep through an atomic blast.

I had one son that you could literally stand on his head and not awake. I also had a daughter that seemed to have proximity detectors. Get more than 6 feet away and she would wail.

Why are you trying to blame HIM?
It was not his fault.
Why can't a woman take responsibility for her actions?
Why do people like you always try to blame a woman's crime on a man?

This wasn't a baby, but a 2 year old. At that age, sleeping until 10am after moving from a house to a car to a house is a little unusual unless she stayed up very late at night. It seems a little odd, but who knows?

You are wrong if you think that good parents can't forget their children. It happened to me. And although there are no statistics close calls happen everyday. It is human nature that goes against us. When a person gets into a routine and that routine is changed your mind can alter memories and you can cross items off that you thought you have done and in fact didn't do. Unfortunately this happened to this women. I lost my son in the same manner and before then would have said, that will never happen...how could you forget your own child but it happens. The statistics are staggering and since car seats were moved into the backseats the statistics have risen. I am concentrating on a safety measures that become law to assist busy parents these days from not having to go through what I go through everyday.
The statistics are NOT staggering! You would have to compare these situations with every child in the country and that would make the percentage extremely low! And forgetting your child is not an option...check your vehicle before you leave it, write things down, put a reminder in the front with you, and never leave a small child in a carseat BEHIND YOUR SEAT! I visualize this situation because I have a granddaughter who rode in a back-facing car seat and her mother was always aware of where her child was! I am very sorry it happened to you...did you learn from it?

Not a point that I care to bump heads over but using my own kids as example I saw it both ways.

One son could be taken from a car, carried into the house, striped and redressed in night clothes and then put into bed and never wake. This continued until he was over age 5 and it got tough to carry him.

The sleeping habits of kids vary greatly but none of my 5 would last more than a few miles in a car before falling to sleep.

Again, using my own as a gauge I find nothing inconsistent about a kid sleeping until 10am or later after being yanked out of bed before 6 am, roused about, strapped into a car seat and driven some 15 freeway miles.

You may be right. My kids are 40, 41, and 31 and sometimes it's really hard to remember. Of course, when they were young, there were no restrictions on carseats, kids could ride in the back of pickups and the front seat was open to anyone. I'm not sure which situation is the best???

whatever was going on does NOT excuse mrs. slaby from leaving her child in the car! when you are a mother you just don't forget your babies, no matter what is going on in your personal life,career, or anything. you are seeing to their comfort and well-being, always. i think she should have been charged with endangering, or recklessness or something. if that had been a dog she would be in jail. can you imagine what that baby went through! where was the person who should have been there. she could have taken her {cecelia} into the school with her., and "forgotten" the donuts. the baby was probably wondering where the person was whom she depended on to see to take care of her. poor little thing., what a horrible death.

I don't do well with threats. I'd be pretty damn careful posting such crap using your name and home town. I think I'll start by putting your name and address on every gay and NAMBLA mailing list in the country. Not only are you a blowhard you are stupid.
And then you make a threat.Blow yourself.

The child was an accident anyway, she did not want it.
