Newcastle woman pleads not guilty to poisoning her daughter

Mother pleads not guilty of poisoning daughter

Another local one. Short but sweet.

A Newcastle woman was granted strict supervised access to her children after pleading not guilty to poisoning her 7 year old daughter and slapping her on two separate occasions.

Mother Dearest who, like all criminals, is protected by Australian law and cannot be named, was being investigated by the NSW Child Abuse Squad after a doctor became suspicious about a number of health conditions that the girl was suffering from. They discovered that she had been dosing her daughter with chloral hydrate, a sedative, while she was already receiving doses from the hospital. When police interviewed her, she denied doing this and slapping her daughter.

The scum sucking solicitor (what a soul destroying job that must be) tried to paint a picture of her children missing their mother, saying that the son asks for mummy to come home. He further mentioned that the son was in no danger of being poisoned, while the daughter was being injected with 15 milligrams of chloral hydrate, on top of the 25mg that she was getting from nursing staff. On an unrelated note, hyenas often attack their own daughters but leave the sons alone, in order to reduce competition for potential mates.

The children are in the care of their grandparents, who, along with DCF, must supervise when Mother Dearest comes to visit. The poor girl is still receiving treatment and Mother Dearest’s case has been adjourned.

Chemo is for cancer treatment only!


Mother accused of poisoning daughter, 4, with alleged chemotherapy drugs bought online

Before reading this post, I didn’t even know you buy chemo drugs online. I thought that if you had cancer, you go to hospital and they give you chemo there. You certainly can’t get high from it and it’s not illegal to obtain. Unless you want to use it to harm someone.

A Gold Coast nutcase is being accused of poisoning her 4 year old daughter with chemo drugs that she bought online. The 22 year old nutcase allegedly gave her daughter the drugs over a 10 month period. The  crazy bitch scowled angrily at the public gallery and shook her head as she was led into the courtroom. Oh, why so mad, crazy bitch? Is it because you were caught poisoning your daughter? Oh, it’s not your fault that you wanted sympathy from other people, so you decided to poison your daughter…

The crazy bitch was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to her daughter between June 30, 2012 and April 2013. She has not applied for bail. The hearing lasted less than 2 minutes, with the magistrate ordering the crazy bitch to be remanded in custody for a further mention via prison video link on May 20.

The little girl is in hospital in a dangerous condition. More to come.

Chemotherapy has really horrible side effects, and what this crazy bitch did is a slap in the face to parents whose kids are in hospital with cancer and need chemo to fight the cancer. No one willingly would take chemo drugs because of the terrible collateral damage it causes. If you need chemo for cancer, it means you’re in dire straits. Wishing cancer on this bitch would be too good for her, we wouldn’t want to hail her as a hero if she survives.

Is it just me or does this case reek of Munchhausen by Proxy? You know, crazy bitch wants sympathy and wants to been seen as a martyr, so she gives her child chemo drugs to give her the signs of cancer treatment, and then she talks about how hard it is to have a kid with cancer. No wonder she was mad when she got to court, her little game had unravelled and no one felt sorry for her.

Stephanie Rochester smothered her baby over Autism concerns

Police: Stephanie Rochester feared son had autism, admitted she put blankets, plastic bag over baby’s head:

Police: Autism was motive in Colo. child’s killing:

Police: Autism was motive in Colo. child’s killing:

34-year-old Stephanie Rochester of Boulder, Colorado has been charged in the smothering murder of her 6-month-old son Rylan. She allegedly killed her own son over fears that he may have Autism. I think I speak not only for parents of children with Autism but also for most parents when I say so fucking what if he did have Autism. Not to mention the fact that Autism can’t be diagnosed at 6-months.

I guess she thought she had a better way of recognizing Autism in children than most medical professionals. She says that she worked as a counselor for children with Autism for 2 years and could recognize the symptoms. I worked as a medical biller for a gastroenterologist practice for five years. That doesn’t mean I can diagnose someone with Crohn’s disease.

It seems that Rochester had this Autism obsession since she was pregnant and kept trying to force the idea on her doctors.

The night before Rylan was killed Rochester and her husband took him to an urgent care because Rylan didn’t want to eat and was being fussy. I think that’s called being a baby but then again I’m not a doctor.

While at the urgent care center Rylan’s father is believed to have said something to the effect of he didn’t realize that it would be this hard being a parent. Every single parent has said that to themself at one point or another however I don’t think he meant as a reason for Rochester to kill their child.

The murder itself was said to have been long and agonizing and I am not going to reprint the details here.

However I think this comes down to either pure selfishness or Munchhausen By Proxy or both.

Rochester was allegedly worried about being financially ruined by raising a child with Autism and was allegedly more concerned about her own way of life. I think MBP might also be involved because she was allegedly going to kill herself after killing the baby but didn’t have a way of doing that. If she killed her self then who would pay attention to her which is what MBP is all about.

She could be potentially facing the death penalty. She’s also been placed on suicide watch and is being segregated from the rest of the inmates. Why bother. She’s not going to kill herself and the other inmates may save the taxpayers some money.

And you better believe that post partum depression has already been trotted out as a possible defense.

Woman puts feces in special needs child’s feeding tube

Mom Taints Child’s Feeding Tube with Feces: Police:

Austin police: Woman put feces in child’s IV feeding tube:

Mother charged with feeding 3-year-old feces:

Say hello to the new face of Münchhausen by Proxy Syndrome. I mean that’s the only way i can explain why this happened.

Anyway that’s 23-year-old Emily McDonald of Austin, Texas. She was arrested for placing feces in the IV feeding tube of her 3-year-old daughter was in the hospital being treated for infections. Oddly enough doctors determined that those infections had been caused by the child being fed fecal matter.

When doctors figured out what was causing the infections they had a camera placed in the girl’s room. That’s when they allegedly caught McDonald putting fecal matter from the girl’s diaper into the IV tube. When arrested McDonald said she knew that the fecal matter would make the girl sick and knew that it could potentially kill her.

So what leads me to my totally unqualified diagnosis of MBP. Well it seems she constantly blogged about her kids medical conditions and frequented various parenting forums. While that’s not entirely indicative of MBP when you put the two together it kind of does. I’m not going to post links to the blog or the forums to protect the girl’s identity.

Also in my 9 years of blogging I’ve done some other posts about women who poisoned their kids who were believed to have had MBP that all used the same thing to poison their kids, human feces.

So Breeder Readers, I pose yet another question to you. Is Münchhausen by Proxy Syndrome a legitimate psychological disorder or are these birth organisms just being attention whores?

Thanks to Michelle, Melissa and Kathryn for the tips.

Not gulity plea in child’s poisoning

VISTA: New charges filed against mother in toddler poisoning:

22-year-old Christina Noel Howell has pleaded not guilty to charges of poisoning her own 22-month-old son. It’s alleged that she mixed cleaning fluids with her son’s apple juice on several different occasions. The child’s injuries are so bad that he risks choking to death anytime he drinks and has a thousand times greater chance of developing cancer.

Now most people would think that this could be a case of Munchausen by proxy where a parent intentionally injures their child for attention. However prosecutors say she did this to her own son to get the attention of a man in this case the baby daddy.

Again why do some women feel the need to inujure or neglect their own children just to keep a penis in their life.

Thanks to Beth for the tip.
