How evil can someone be ? No words.
So very sad , Even the hatefulness in the comments speak to how little everyone values human life today… We have become so desensitized by the media, movies, social media that we are a society of rage.
POS! ð¡ People who hurt children are pure evil.
I totally agree .
Piece of trash, sleep well baby boy. â¹
This is gut wrenching…
“why are people so hateful”…..This is so disgusting…….Slam her head into a concrete floor
How was she giving a bond?
the baby didnt hadnt passed away yet. but bond should have never been giving to ANYONE who harms a child
First degree murder you shouldn’t have a bond at all! And to a child, I don’t know what’s wrong with dekalb county court house but this is disgusting, they go after people for trespassing and let people with murder charges out on bond? ððð
When she was bonded the child was alive.
not that hard to understand..she was arrested for endangerment when BABY WAS ADMMITTED to hospital, bonded out… YES, SHOULD HAVE NEVER ALLOWED A BOND.. baby in coma couple days, parents made the hardest decision ever to make and take baby off life support, baby passes, then SHE IS ARRESTED AGAIN FOR 2 COUNTS OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER..SHE WILL NOT GET OUT….the ppl in prison prob wont let her live very long..
reduced at that
Pickett Ed it was put higher at 5 mil after the baby died.
Good. Hang her.
Put a bullet in her and make sure she can never hurt another child.
