Play date ends with a crash

Trial set for Iowa woman in baby’s crash death

A Kanawha area mother is set for trial after killing her 6-month-old.

Around 2 in the afternoon on October 8th 2010 Nicole Jacobs, 37, put her 6-month-old son Lincoln in the van along with his 4-year-old sister Kailyn and her 4-year-old girlfriend Mackenzie .

She was already drunk and well above the legal limit when she got into her van. In her pickled state she forgot to buckle any of the children into their seats. I am sure everyone can guess what happened next.

Nicole Jacobs lost control of the van, rolled into a ditch and all the children were ejected. The van landed on top of poor little Lincoln, killing him. I could not imagine what went through the mind of the two 4-year-olds as they experienced the accident.

Nicole Jacobs was arrested at the scene and but had to be hospitalized due to injuries she received during the accident. For some reason I have no feelings of sympathy for the useless hag.

Nicole Jacobs has since been charged with:

1) Homicide by vehicle, class B felony

2) Child Endangerment causing death, class B felony

3) Serious injury by vehicle, class D felony

4) Child Endangerment causing bodily injury, class D felony

5) Child Endangerment causing serious injury, class C felony

6) Operating while intoxicated, 1st offense, serious misdemeanor

Damn right!

I’d like to charge her with being a reckless and selfish cant. Her trial is set for September 2011 and I expect nothing less then prison time for the trauma she subjected these kids to.

Thanks Lisa Marie for the tip!

Rest in peace Lincoln Jacobs, 4/9/2010-10/8/2010.

Iowa City Mom failed to stop sex abuse

Iowa City Mom failed to stop sex abuse 

In Iowa City, Iowa there is a deadbeat Mom who knew her teenage daughter was sexually abusing her 6-year-old daughter and broadcasting it over the internet! 

Mom-of-the-year (so far) has been charged with child endangerment. 

The police report says that the little girl told her mother that her 15-year-old sister was performing sex acts on her and let others watch via a webcam. She knew and didn’t do anything about it! 

According to The Gazette of Cedar Rapids, Iowa City Police Sgt. Denise Brotherton says once some abuse “comes to your attention, you’re expected to take actions to keep your children safe, and that’s what this woman did not do.” 

The teenage sister has been charged with sexual abuse.

And both girls have been separated from each other and their mother.

Tamelia Harris killed “CC”

CECILIA “CC” DENISE HARRIS – 20 Months – Dubuque IA

Mother Accused of Murder Makes Initial Court Appearence



Tamelia Shonte Harris, 32, has been charged with First Degree Murder of her 20-month-old daughter, Cecilia, known as “CC”, and then burned her tiny body in a fire pit behind her house. 

Cecilia had last been seen in June wearing a white T-shirt. In July, remains of a young girl were found on her property. After DNA tests were completed they announced they were in fact those of baby Cecilia.

Police had found bloodstains in the little girls bedroom on the walls and in the closet. According to a friend, Harris told her that slammed the girls head on the headboard and threw her into the closet.

Harris has been charged with negligence as well for providing false information to authorities. She had a few stories in line for when the investigation began – she claimed that she sent the girl to live with her grandmother – but Harris’ mother denied having her and hadn’t seen the baby. She then claimed that she sent her to a friend but did not provide any more info.

A neighbor noticed that Harris seemed to be missing one of her seven children. The tip was called in when Social Services reported that she had sent her daughter to live with someone else. 

Harris had her first court appearance last week. She did not say one word, she nodded yes when the judge asked her if she understood murder charge she now faces. 

Harris faces a maximum sentence of life in prison with no parole. She is being held in Dubuque County Jail on a $750,000 cash only bond.

7-month-old chokes on bag of weed in ambulance

UPDATE: Couple arrested after baby chokes on bag of pot:

In possibly the most Jerry Springer-like arrest I have ever seen Amanda Monique Mallit, 18, and Horace Phillip, 18, of Waterloo, Iowa have been arrested. Before I tell you the charges let me tell you how it allegedly came about.

Rescue services were called to the house after the pregnant Mallit was assaulted at their house by a third party.

While in the ambulance being transported to the hospital Mallit’s 7-month-old daughter began to choke. What a stroke of luck that they were in the ambulance at the time and the girl was able to be saved. What was not so lucky is that the girl was choking on a plastic bag with weed in it.

Which gave police probable cause to search the house which turned up even more weed. Phillip copped to the weed allegedly. I’ll give him points for at least allegedly manning up. But wait, there’s more…

After Mallit was released from the hospital and police tried taking the child into custody she allegedly shook the girl.

The only thing missing from this story is Maury and a paternity test. Or maybe Geraldo and some folding chairs.

Thanks to Suzanne for the tip.

18-year-old with 16-year-old wife fractures baby's skull

Police: Baby Suffers Fractured Skull, Broken Neck:

Des Moines dad allegedly fractures 5-month-old son’s skull:

18-year-old Paul Russell Davis of Des Moines, Iowa is accused of fracturing the skull and breaking the neck of his 5-month-old son.

It seems that Davis got into an argument with his 16-year-old wife, also the mother of the child. She took a walk to cool off leaving the baby with Davis. The baby cried as they are wont to do. Since you’re reading this here you can pretty much figure what happened next.

Davis said the baby was crying as he sat in his swing. He said he “snatched the baby” out of the swing and threw the baby in his crib. He said he then grabbed the child from out of the crib and shook him in an attempt to keep him awake until he fell limp.

First off who allows their 16-year-old daughter to get married? I’m all for the traditional family unit but no 16-year-old girl should be a wife let alone a mother.

Secondly who the hell doesn’t know that you don’t snatch and throw infants? This isn’t some kind of twisted olympic event.

All the education that we have out there for kids in schools and teen pregnancy rates are still through the roof. We have failed our children as a society.

Thanks to John L for the tip.

Kid at home, mom at bar. What else is new?

Des Moines mom arrested on neglect charge:

I used to drink. As a matter if fact I used to drink a lot. I’m not an alcoholic or anything but it my 20s I drank to excess once or twice or a hundred times. So I get it. I remember how fun it was. I also remember each and every time I paid for it in one way or another. Luckily I grew up before I really harmed anyone. The Blob over there, not so much.

She’s 29-year-old Jennifer Cordova of Des Moines, Iowa. She went to a bar and left her 5-year-old daughter at home.

Officers found an unlocked door, opened it and announced themselves. The police report says the 5-year-old, Imelda Hernandez, came around a corner and ran to the officers.

“Imelda immediately wanted to be held and was unable to speak,” police said.

She told officers she was afraid of monsters in the basement. She appeared to be terrified and traumatized.

Imelda pointed to Officer Leanna Lawrence and repeatedly said she wanted to go home with her.

But it’s ok because Cordova supposedly called home from the bar at 1:30 AM.

Guess what. 5-year-olds aren’t supposed to be up at 1:30 AM. Then again their mothers are supposed to be home at that time too.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.

Michelle Kehoe gets life

Iowa mom gets life for murdering son; barred from contacting surviving son:

I originally posted about Michelle Kehoe here. She is the woman who survived an ‘accident’ with her two kids after her van flew into a river.

Apparently that may not have been the proper results she wanted because in November of last year she slit the throats of her two kids ages 2 and 7 left them in the van to die in a parking lot. She told police that a stranger took the kids. The 7-year-old survived but the 2-year-old did not.

This past week she was sentenced to life behind bars for the murder of her 2-year-old son and she’s been ordered not to have any contact with her surviving son.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.

Oh the weather outside is frightful

Laurens boy exposed to cold is taken from parents:

37-year-old Eugene G. Lane and his 30-year-old bride Stacy Joe Lane of Laurens, Iowa were cited and released for child endangerment. Their 7-year-old son was found walking the streets of Lauren in boots with no socks, jeans with no underwear, a T-shirt and a light winter jacket. Did I mention that it was -8 degrees in Lauren with a wind chill of -39? And oh yeah, he was taken by DHS. Their four other kids remained in the ‘parents’ custody.

The child was shivering so bad when someone found him that he could barely even speak.

No word on why he had walked a half mile like that.

Children who survived river slashed

Mom follows dark path from icy rescue to murder charge:

Less than a year ago Michelle Kehoe’s car skidded off the road, hit a curb then plunged into the Iowa river. Her sons were in the car with her. 4 good Samaritans were able to rescue Kehoe and her boys then ages 6 and 14 months.

Apparently some of that was for naught as Kehoe has been arrested for slashing the throats of both of her sons.

The 2-year-old and the 7-year-old were found in Kehoe’s van that appeared to have been abandoned. The 2-year-old was dead but the 7-year-old survived.

The 7-year-old told police that his mother covered his eyes, ears and mouth with duct tape and then slit his throat. She did the same to the 2-year-old while his brother listened on.

In a very Susan Smith like moment on that day Kehoe went to a house and said that an unknown man had abducted her children. When police investigated they found a note that detailed what she would tell police in the van. She later admitted to purchasing the duct tape and knife.

Which makes one wonder if the crash into the river was not an attempt at a Susan Smith II.

Valeria Shakhov Injects Daughter with "Unknown Substance"

NeedleValeria Shakhov probably won’t attain the level of ignominy that was earned by Debra Diaz, who was accused of injecting her kids with tainted blood. But the two moms appear to be cut from the same cloth. Shakhov was arrested after hospital staff, suspecting Munchausen syndrome by proxy was in da house, put her under surveillance, and discovered her injecting her 19-month-old daughter, Rachel Pineda, with an “unknown substance” to make her ill.

When confronted, Shakhov said that the substance was baby formula. Mmmm, baby formula – it tastes even better delivered intravenously! Toxicology tests are still pending; once out, they’ll tell us whether Shakhov was really using Similac, or something more nefarious. I’m not a doctor, but “baby formula” sounds like bullshit. Most of the nutrients in formula end up in the bloodstream anyway; would injecting them into a child make her sick enough that she required medical attention? If someone with sufficient medical knowledge can comment, I’d be grateful.

I’ve never understood Munchausen’s. Is parenting not stressful enough that you have to bring more stress upon yourself? What kind of warped person feeds off of that type of negative energy? More important: what kind of sicko values feeding off of that energy more than they value the health and life of their child?
