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

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

Bleach: The New Albuterol

Florida dad jailed after giving baby bleach; he thought it would help her asthma

Hey, Parents, guess what? No more lengthy waits in the doctor’s office are needed for your kids who have asthma! No more expensive medications! Now, you can cure your child of this horrific breathing disorder by simply feeding them BLEACH!!! NO! Not really. But, apparently a father in Florida has spent too much time sniffing bleach fumes (or something stronger?) himself, and thought that a cap full of bleach was just what was needed to improve his two-month old daughter’s breathing problem.

Little Caelynn Washington is recovering in a Gainesville, FL, hospital after her father added bleach to her bottle and fed it to her. He said he thought it would improve her breathing, because “someone had told him it would”. Yeah, I remember those days…I had friends tell me all manner of things when I had my first child. Luckily, I had the requisite number of brain cells to distinguish between good and bad advice. For instance, I had one friend tell me that giving my child tylenol would help her sleep at night. I’m sure it would, but Tylenol is not a sleeping aid for babies, and I figured my babies slept quite enough without that nutritional additive, thankyouverymuch. I was also told that rubbing whiskey on my baby’s gums would help with teething. Again, are you freakin’ kidding me?!? You don’t give alcohol – in any form – to a baby. Teething rings worked fine, and were much cheaper than a bottle of Jack – and reusable, as well.

Apparently, 20 year old Carron Washington, of Ocala, FL, has fewer brain cells than a dead turnip, however. He thought that the bleach would help his daughter. Right. Sorry, folks, I don’t buy it. No one with an education higher than third grade would think that bleach is an acceptable medical treatment for anything, except, perhaps, assisted euthanasia. Which I also disagree with, by the way. This guy’s sister has told reporters that her brother made an honest mistake, because this was his first child, and he didn’t know it would harm the child. Again…right…not so much. Did he drink any of this ‘miracle cure’ himself? I think not. I’m sure if he had, he would have realized that the burning sensation caused by the bleach as it traveled down the esophagus was not an indication of healing properties. Besides, as anyone who has ever cleaned with bleach knows, it has a warning right on the bottle that states there should be adequate ventilation while using the product because it can CAUSE respiratory problems. In simplified terms, the fumes from bleach can burn the lining of the lungs. So, how in blue Hell did this guy think DRINKING such a toxic substance would help his child’s asthma? He didn’t. I don’t buy it, and I hope he gets sent to jail until his baby is grown. Who knows, next time, he might try giving her gasoline thinking it will make her run faster. Or antifreeze to cool her off when she has a fever.

If ever there was a time to enact a law punishing criminal stupidity, this is it. It has long been my opinion that such high levels of stupidity should be accompanied by excruciating pain, so that the idiots who think up such asininity would be so incapacitated by the pain that they would be unable to move well enough to act upon such thoughts. And if wishes were nickels, I’d be a millionaire.

Carron Washington is being held on $25,000.00 bond and has been ordered to stay away from Caelynn when she is released from the hospital. Oh, and in the article, it mentioned that when the baby threw up, the “parents” called 911. If the mother was at home at the time and was a party to this ill-conceived ‘medical treatment’, then why is she not being charged as well? Just a little something to wonder about, I guess.

Well, I need to go and give my kids their medicine, now. I think I’ll let them have a cup of Tide detergent instead of bothering with those long tedious baths. And give them Miracle-Gro plant food to help them grow strong and healthy. After all it says right on the bottle of plant food that it will strengthen and make plants grow faster – so it should work for the kids, too, huh? No, I’m not really gonna give that stuff to my kids…because I’m not stupid.

Sorry for the snarkiness of my post – wait, no I’m not. I’m only sorry I couldn’t come up with something even more harsh to say about the stupidity of this moron. I must be slipping.

Murder/Botched-Suicide–Lisette Bamenga

Internet Research Helped Kill Kids

Mom Faces Murder Charges

Bronx Siblings Gassed and Poisoned

29 year old Lisette Bamenga, a teacher, found out her husband had allegedly cheated on her, having a baby by someone else.  Her reaction was to murder their kids and unfortunately fail at killing herself…

This selfish, vindictive cunt admittedly searched the web to find out how to poison 5 year old Trevor Noel Jr. and 4 month old Violet Lily.  She gave them grape juice laced with windshield wiper fluid.  When that didn’t seem to work she put them in the bathtub to drown them, she then dressed them, took them to the kitchen, covered the windows with plastic, turned on the gas and slit her wrists.

A neighbor called 911 to report a gas leak.  First responders found the useless bio-bitch unconscious with minor cuts on her wrists.  Tragically, they were unable to revive the children.

In one of the suicide notes she left was written:  “You got what you wanted, me and the kids are in a better place now.”

She’s facing 2 counts of 1st Degree Murder.  Her lawyer is already screaming about her rights being violated because police interviewed her at the hospital.  He’s trying to get her statements thrown out.  — “I poisoned them.  That didn’t work, so I drowned them,” and “It’s not fair, Trevor had a baby with another woman,”

This man arrived home, after working his shift with the NYPD, to total devastation.   My heart breaks for the father and family of these angels.


Rant On:

I can understand the anger directed at a cheating spouse.  I get divorcing him and taking half of everything!  I can even understand, to a point, wanting to hurt or kill his ass!!  What I can’t wrap my mind around is killing your babies because your husband screwed around!!  I don’t care if he had 20 different kids running around by 20 different women; no one deserves the loss this man is suffering!

Why do the selfish, cowardly fucks insure the death of the babies but they always seem to survive!?!  She didn’t drink the juice she poisoned those babies with or research how to properly slice her damn wrists in order to die, but she made damn sure they wouldn’t survive!!  She poisoned, drowned, and then gassed them…

Those babies were innocent and deserved to have a full life!!  Children aren’t pawns to be used to hurt someone!!

Engelhardt gets 20 years in prison

 Engelhardt gets 20 years in prison 

Melissa Engelhardt, 24, was found guilty of first-degree murder for poisoning her 21-month old stepson, Andrew Cianfrini, last November.

She confessed to putting poison in his sippy cup. She wanted to make him sick so she could blame his biological mother and gain custody of him herself. “I didn’t want him to die,” Engelhardt said in the statement. “I just wanted to make him sick.” 

Wow, that plan sure backfired.

The toddler was on a custodial visit to his father when Engelhardt poured windshield washer fluid mixed with a sweet beverage into the boy’s sippy cup. The boy died of methanol poisoning; methanol is a component in some windshield washer fluids, as well as antifreeze.

While she was sentenced to 20 years, she will still walk the streets again one day. 

“I still don’t think 20 years is long enough. I’m just glad that she’ll never see her… my children again.” Andrew’s birth mother, Kristin Cianfrini, and her parents also spoke. They do not believe she is one bit remorseful for what happened to little Andrew. 

Kristin says the only thing getting her through this difficult time are her other children.

Here baby, have some methadone…

Mother admits to killing infant by poisoning with methadoneAngela Davis Murphree is no angel. She’s a worthless, 30-year-old, murdering mother of an 11-month-old baby girl. She has admitted to giving her baby the pills that killed her, not once, but twice! 

On October 21st, a doctor was concerned for the baby and sent her to the children’s hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. There. She tested positive for methadone and seemed to be getting better once under treatment. The baby was tested two more times and tested negative for the drug on November 2nd.  BUT out of left field the baby dies on November 3rd. Another drug screen and POW! she’s positive for methadone, again. The only person with access to the baby, was Murphree, other then the nurses who were caring for the child. Police believe she is responsible for giving her the drug. She later admitted to crushing the pills and putting them in her food. 

So, let’s get this strait. Mother Reaper poisoned her daughter twice – the second time right under the noses of the hospital. 

I’m actually surprised she was able to do this – my son was in the NICU for a week after delivery and those nurses watched him like a hawk! In fact I wasn’t even allowed to prepare his bottles; they did and then gave them to me until I was able to try breastfeeding. 

Murphree has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse. The baby’s death has been ruled a homicide, as a result of complications of the toxic effects of methadone.

How Many Skeletons are in Your Closet?

Crypt Keeper

Officials Believe Remains From 5 Of Pa. Woman’s Pregnancies

I have a pretty cluttered closet…however dead babies are not something I keep stashed away anywhere. Not so for Michele Kalina of Reading PA. This 44 year old bone collector, hid up to SIX pregnancies from her husband and boyfriend. DNA test have concluded that at least 4 of those babies were born alive. What a selfish bitch. This woman is a home health care aide, she KNOWS about safe haven laws surely…but no, she cheated on her disabled husband, got pregnant roughly six times and she killed at
least four of them. They were found stuffed into coolers, encased in cement and hidden in a locked closet in her bedroom. Police feel they were born near or full term and killed by suffocation, neglect or poisoning. 

Wouldn’t you think birth control might have been a thought here? If she didn’t want to get pregnant, they have ways of avoiding that these days. Amazing thing that. The affair between her and her boyfriend produced a little girl in 2003 that Kalina put up for adoption. Lucky little girl, hopefully she never has to find out who her mother is. Why spare that one and kill the others? Too much work? Too afraid someone would rat on her extracurricular activities? Afraid she might have to take responsibility for something other than her vagina?The sperm donor in this whole escapade isn’t the brightest crayon in the box either. He didn’t notice any of the pregnancies and believed Kalinas when she told him they were cysts. Apparently these Cysts got drained at the hospital every 9 months but the pesky things just kept coming back. So did they not have sex or foreplay anytime after she got pregnant? Pregnant has a very definite look and feel to it. What a moron….wonder what he thinks about t he whole thing now? 

Apparently Kalina has also mentioned she is alcoholic and prone to blackouts. Really? Is this going to be defense that is shoved down a jury’s throat? Is giving babies cement overcoats a chronic issue with alcoholics these days? Is this supposed to excuse FIVE dead babies? 

Kalinas has a surviving 19 year old daughter from her husband (good to know she at least slept with him on occasion…) Imagine going through your mother’s forbidden closet with your dad and discovering dead babies….wow. Just wow. 

So, who is all for giving Michele Kalinas her own cement overcoat…or better yet, how about good old fashion cement overshoes. Then we can just wait for them to harden and shove her in a lake…with her very own cooler. Sound good?

If at first you don’t succeed – try, try again…

Mother Charged in Child Abuse Case, Allegedly Involving Slow Poisoning of Child

From the great state of Ohio, we have a tale of a woman who has allegedly tried – not once, but twice – to poison her daughter. The girl was first treated for lead poisoning when she was five months old, and at that time her lead levels were 100 times higher than they should be. Erin Hendrix, 28, was a chemistry teacher at the time and her husband was a minister.

The couple moved to a new city where the girl, now three, is currently suffering from lead poisoning again. A caregiver of the child says the mother loves the girl, and this can’t be true – but we all know how people can fool even the best of us.

I’ll tell you a few reasons why I don’t believe this was accidental:

1. The home and water supply have both been tested for lead and the results were negative.

2. Even if there were lead in the house or water – all of the family members would show signs, not just the child. Hers might be higher due to her size, but all would have elevated levels – especially if it was in the water.

3. I live in a very old house (turn of the century), and none of my six children has ever had elevated lead levels, even though they crawled around the house, and occasionally licked the walls. (I also had the house tested for lead when we first moved there, and none was found, so babies slobbering on floors and walls didn’t worry me much).

4. Even if the experts are wrong, and there was in fact lead in both of the homes, that doesn’t explain a five month old with lead poisoning. A child who is highly mobile can get around well enough to have considerable exposure to lead paint, but a five month old? They are still just learning to crawl.

Something smells fishy here, and I don’t think there’s a river nearby. Erin has been charged with child abuse, and has pleaded not guilty (big surprise!). The child has been placed in foster care and the mother is banned from visiting. No mention of the father’s involvement or whereabouts, though. I’m really curious about the father……

Thanks go to April for this one. She sent me the tip. I’m just glad it didn’t involve a dead or raped baby…..this one is expected to survive, although her recovery will take a long time and there may be lifelong consequences.

A Jim Jones Wannabe….Kool-Aid, Anyone?

Posted on by 2 comments

Bad dad

The wonky-eyed fella you see above has, it seems, an aspiration to become the new millenium replacement for either the Kool-aid man, or Jim Jones. Except the Kool-aid man never offered a brake-fluid flavored or a rust-treatment-fluid flavored variety of the popular children’s drink. I’m pretty sure Day-Quil and Ibuprofen were not on the list of favored flavors either. OK, so Jim Jones, then.

Jose Enrique Oliva-Rosa has been arrested and charged with two counts each of attempted murder, poisoning, and second degree child abuse of his two young children, for forcing them to drink a cocktail made of the four flavor possibilities listed above. Brake fluid, rust remover, ibuprofen and Day-Quil. Yum. Thanks dad, can I have some more?

Jose was upset that his wife had left him and was going to take the selfish way out by killing himself and taking his two children with him. His daughter, Gwyneth, is six years old and his son, Enrique, is two. Thankfully they both lived. Unfortunately, so did Jose. Too bad he didn’t ingest enough of the mixture to kill himself before the authorities arrived. Can you imagine the psychological damage these kids will have, knowing that their own father tried to kill them?

The children were visiting their DNA donor when he concocted his kiddie-drink, and offered it to both of them in sippy cups. A call was made to the the police indicating that the children might be in danger, and officers were dispatched to the residence, where the three of them were found and transported to a hospital. Jose has admitted that he intended to kill himself and “take them with him”. Even with that admission, he has already begun advancing possible defense ploys.

His wife was going to divorce him, so he may be planning the ‘extreme emotional distress’ defense. Or he may have been using this drama as a way to try and get his wife to reconcile with him. Because we all know that trying to off the kids will usually engender sympathy from the other parent. No, not really. That would be more likely to promote rage and anger from the mom. I know I would be mad enough that the authorities would do well to watch me closely if the guy made bail after trying to hurt my babies. Because I might just try to save them the cost of a trial. I might decide to do a little poisoning of my own. High velocity lead poisoning, if you know what I mean.

Good old Jose has also mentioned his own horrible childhood to others. It seems he was abused as a child in his native country, and was granted asylum here. So we might be regaled with the “I was abused, and that’s why I’m an abuser” sob story. Lets all go buy popcorn and sodas now, and get good seats for this little drama. A legal defense for child-abuse, based on prior personal child abuse, is always entertaining. Oops, I meant disgusting. That’s the biggest BS copout on the planet. Those who were abused themselves should be LESS likely to abuse their own kids, since they know how damaging it is from firsthand experience.

The children are currently in the custody of their biological mother. I, for one, hope the sperm donor never gets to see his kids again.

Step-Breeder poisoned boy

Stepmother accused of killing baby from Batavia:

Elmira mother accused of poisoning 21-month-old stepson pleads not guilty:

I can’t remember the last time I posted a step-mother story before. Should we go with the classic Wicked Stepmother or the more modern Step-Monster.

Either way 24-year-old Melissa S. Englehardt of Elmira, New York fits the bill for both.

She has been arrested and charged in the November 2009 poisoning death of her 21-month-old stepson Andrew Cianfrini of Batavia, NY. Englehart allegedly put methanol in Andrew’s juice. Methanol is an ingredient of antifreeze.

Police say that prior to Andrew’s visit with his father and his slampig of a wife that she searched on the net for ways to poison someone and that methanol was allegedly found in Andrew’s sippy cup.

She’s also pleaded not guilty on top of everything else.

I guess those web searches and the methanol are just coincidence.

I’ve watched a lot of true crime shows in my time and it seems that anti-freeze is the weapon of choice for women who want to get rid of a family member. My point is that she’s a stupid idiot because police and forensic experts know what to look for and you’re not the first person to think of this. The dumbest and most evil maybe but not the first.

Thanks to Tammy for the tip.
