The band of misfits you see above story starts in 2008, when Jeanette and Janet Allen (20 years-old at the time) gave temporary custody of their two sons Christopher and Wyatt, both 2-years-old, to their sister Nereida Allen (22) and her boyfriend Joshua Peacher (23). It appears that the Christopher and Wyatt, whom were both fathered by the same man, were living with their mothers, in spacious home the twins had inherited from their mother. Social Services removed them August 25th 2008, citing squalid conditions. So they have this big beautiful home and it was filled with animals, animal feces and trash. Yuck!
Within 48 hours of being placed with their aunt Christopher was found unresponsive and died at the hospital after being removed from life support and Wyatt showed signs of severe abuse. Nereida and Joshua claim they punished Christopher and Wyatt for throwing tantrums. Ok then… babies throw tantrums, get over it! Anyhow, Nereida and Joshua were both convicted of murder, assault and abuse in March 2011. April 1st 2011 they were sentenced Nereida got 25 years for murder, 12 years for assault and 10 years for abuse and Joshua got 50 years for murder, 20 years for assault and 20 years for abuse. Awesome! The story doesn’t end there…
On March 29th a grand jury indicted the twins Jeanette and Janet on four felony counts related to placing the half brothers in a potentially abusive situation and prior to that keeping them in “hazardous conditions” regarding the home they shared with their mothers. The prosecutor is treating the case as he would any other case against a parent involved in alleged abuse or neglect, stating “the charges are serious, this far exceeded a dirty house.” Charges were not sought sooner as they did not want to interfere with the ongoing murder case.
