Manslaughter? She didn't "mean it"?? For real! She reasearched posion, she asked people the effects and if it were dangerous. She gave him twice the amount needed for him to die and never demanded that Andrew go to the hospital KNOWING DAMN FULL well that she had posioned that little boy. This verdict is an outrage! I researched and read so many articles on this case, premeditation and motive were there all along. WItness after witness testified how she complained about the child support her husband was paying! Her own computer showed reasearch on topics to posionings...and for an added bonus she inquired from freinds in strangers alike about antifreeze and posioning for MONTHS before she did this!!! Was the judge in the room???? For real?

I am sickened that she only got manslaughter. She should have gotten murder 2. I know karma will do what the judge wouldn't. May she get exactly what she deserves.

God bless Drew Cianfrini.
