Tara Grant's Children

(copy and paste, as Blogger is being obnoxious again.)

Their mother is dead. Their father, in jail. And now Tara Grant's two children are the subject of a tug-of-war to decide where they will end up calling home.

Grant, 34, of Washington Township was allegedly strangled and dismembered by her husband, Stephen Grant, in February.

I read his official confession, so, "allegedly" is merely a legalistic convention here.

Tara Grant's sister, Alicia Standerfer, filed a petition Tuesday to terminate her brother-in-law's parental rights. She filed another petition looking to adopt the Grants' 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son.

But Stephen Grant's sister, Kelly Utykanski, of Sterling Heights also wants custody. She filed a similar petition with the Macomb County Juvenile Court on Tuesday.

And Grant wants her to have custody, the Utykanskis' lawyer said.

Stephen Grant, the whining, au pair-boffing, wife-murdering sack of pond scum wants his sister to have custody of the children?


Well, I have news for Mr Stephen (Pond Scum) Grant! People in Hell want ice water, too! Where does he get off thinking that he should have any say in who raises those children? Having KILLED the person who should be raising them?


Grant, 37, faces charges of first-degree murder and mutilating a corpse. His preliminary exam is set for May 15 to decide whether there's enough evidence to warrant a criminal trial.

Enough evidence? Let's see...her torso was in the garage...he confessed to the killing and dismemberment...I'm guessing there is enough evidence.

"Stephen still has legal custody over his children," Radzinski said. "He wants to directly place his children with Kelly and Chris."

He wants. HE WANTS! That wide-eyed manipulative son of a Siberian Sasquatch is trying to run his children's lives from inside a jail cell!

He just doesn't know when to shut up, does he!?

As Alivia commented on the above link:

If Stephen Grant was any relation to me, I would not have him anywhere near the children. I also would see to it that his sister have visitation ONLY when another person was in the room with her. I think she is a liar and is as manipulative as he is. When he dismembered their mother in the house while the kids were asleep, slept with the nanny while the mother was out of town and lied, hid and tried to commit suicide by freezing to death (pleazeeee), he showed the care and love he had for the children. NONE.

Go, Alivia! I totally agree!

Terminate his parental rights. And, while you're at it, terminate him, too!


  1. ITA!

    It absolutely blows my mind.

    "Another court hearing also is scheduled for May 16 to ask that Stephen Grant's rights to his wife's life insurance and estate be terminated."

    I wonder if the 2nd beneficaries on that policy are the children. Maybe that's why KU is fighting too?

    All I can say is go Alicia! Those children belong with you!

  2. I'm sure the insurance is a consideration, though one that will never be admitted to by Stevie's sister!

  3. Yep. Sounds about par for the course with KU and SG.

    Sorry, but I don't trust her has far as I can throw her. IMO, she doesn't have the best interests of the children at heart.

  4. It's going to come down to Solomon and the sword, isn't it?
