While browsing through a forum, a member’s thread title caught my eye. “Mother kills baby in a microwave” Intrigued by the title of this hideous crime, I went to google and typed up the subject in the search box. Sure enough, a woman for Dayton Ohio was convicted of killing her baby, and the weapon... yes you guessed it…A MICROWAVE According to police and prosecutors, the baby suffered from internal heating damages but none that were external. In court, the mother pleaded “Not guilty” to the charges, but went ahead and said ‘Well gee, maybe if I wasn’t so drunk, my baby would still be alive’ Ok well she really didn’t say gee, but she did admit to being drunk and that her baby might still be alive if she were sober.
Even if the mother did not microwave her child, she is still 100 percent responsible for what happened to her child. Disagree with me, but I think not knowing what is happening to your child while being intoxicated is just as bad as killing the child. Its sad how parents knowingly or unknowingly hurt their children. I feel no sympathy for this woman because she chose to get drunk and therefore chose to kill her baby by not even bothering to be a responsible mother to see if she was o.k.. I find the defendant guilty as charged. No the verdict isn’t out, but in my mind, the case is closed.
