Parents Gone Wild! Alejandro and Kristen Aleman charged with the death of their 13-month-old daughter, Tayla Aleman, who weighed only 7 pounds and looked like a concentration camp survivor, but they did not notice how small she was…

This is so horrific I am not sure what to say. It disgusts me that 2 adults could do this to a child, much less their own child. And then to tell the police that they had no idea that she was so small. That is a flat out lie. There is no way a mother would not realize that their 1-year-old child weighed 2 pounds less than she did at birth. She was tiny and looked like a concentration camp survivor. She must have had bones showing through and a hollow look in her eyes. She wore clothes made for a 3-month-old – but she never noticed? NO WAY. And her father never held her (or any of the other 10 children). They go to trial in January 2018 and the State is seeking the death penalty. There is no excuse, no defense.

Parents Gone Wild! Jessica Schwarz beat and then drowned her stepson, Andrew Joseph “AJ” Schwarz; Sentenced to 70 years in prison

From Jessica Schwarz’ appeal: Defendant’s husband found Andrew dead in the family swimming pool around 6:30 a.m. He was nude, and his body was covered with bruises. The pool was less than four feet deep, and Andrew, who was taller than that, was a good swimmer. Defendant, who would normally have slept late on Sunday, the morning that Andrew’s death was discovered, awakened her husband around 6:00 a.m. when she couldn’t find Andrew.

In her trial, defendant’s counsel attempted to show that Andrew’s death was either a suicide, an accident, or that defendant’s husband, Andrew’s father, murdered him. She argues that the largely circumstantial evidence of her involvement was insufficient, and that the court should have granted her motion for judgment of acquittal.

Although Andrew’s life had been made miserable by the defendant, who had abused him physically and mentally on many occasions, the pathologist who performed an autopsy on Andrew, Dr. Burton, testified that “there’s a medical certainty that this is not a suicide.” Dr. Burton testified that Andrew had bruises on his buttocks, the insides of his thighs and one arm, and in the small of the back, none of which could have resulted from falling down. He also had other soft tissue injuries, including to his lip and cheek. More specifically, he had lacerations behind each ear almost in the same place, which were consistent with pressure from fingers having forced him into the pool and holding him underwater.

Deadly Women: Betty Lou Haber got her son, Arnold Jefferson McEver, and his friend, James Joseph Brandt, to kill her husband, Albert Haber so she could get his insurance money; All sentenced to prison

From Haber’s appeal: James Joseph Brandt was the admitted killer of Albert Haber. Brandt pled guilty to first degree murder, and pursuant to a plea bargain he received a life sentence. Brandt testified that Betty Lou Haber engaged him and her son by a previous marriage, Arnold Jefferson McEver, to kill her husband in the Haber home on the night of January 24, 1975. The plan was to make it appear as though the murder had occurred during the commission of a burglary. Brandt said that before Mrs. Haber went out for the evening, she left open a sliding glass door to facilitate the entry into the Haber residence that night. Brandt explained that he and McEver went to the residence as planned and put some fake pry marks on the door to make it look like a forceful entry had occurred. The house was placed in disarray in order to make it appear that it had been burglarized. Then Brandt and McEver lay in wait for Mr. Haber to enter the house.

When Haber came home, Brandt struck him with a rifle butt. Then Brandt and McEver beat him several times in the head. The men took some guns and other items from the house with them when they left. Brandt later decided that Mr. Haber might not be dead so he returned alone and shot him in the mouth with a revolver. An autopsy later revealed that the beating rather than the gunshot wound caused Mr. Haber’s death. While Brandt was the only witness who directly implicated the appellants in the killing, there was other substantial evidence which corroborated the fact that McEver participated in the murder and that Mrs. Haber was active in the planning of how it was to be accomplished.
