I wrote about the sad case of Riley Ann Sawyer back when her body was identified. As it was over a year ago, you might want to click the link to refresh your memory.
Or not. It's very sad.
The parents were teens, living with his mother in Mentor OH. Kimberly, the egg donor, ran off to Texas with some guy she met on line, while involved in one of those role-playing games. The bitch took the baby with her. The baby wound up beaten to death and dumped into Galveston Bay in a weighted box. Stupid egg donor and stepfather thought that would be the end of it, and the egg donor told the neighbours that someone from CPS in Ohio came and got the baby.
Now the egg donor is on trial. Her husband gets his own trial; no doubt they are blaming each other.
The kicker is that she was pregnant at the time of her arrest. Stepfather's relatives are fostering that baby now. Her family wants the baby.
No, I take that back. The REAL kicker is that the State of Texas, in its infinite wisdom, is not seeking the death penalty. Why not (after all, they seek it and get it for all sorts of other killers)? The answer is, because they are not sure they can convince a jury that these two baby beaters pose a continuing threat to society!
Well, they may not threaten Joe the Plumber, or Marcy the Math Teacher, but I would say they are a definite threat to any children they might have, either singly or together!
Is killing a child not considered a threat to society? What the hell is going on?
