This occurred in my neck of the woods. We're still in shock that this "grandmother" could have hurt her own granddaughter this way. It's been a sad day for our village. RIP sweet little girl.

It is sickening.

pulled from that article ^^^
accused of striking and stabbing her 6-month-old granddaughter to death, prosecutors said, and was ordered held without bond
I bet the article will be updated and re-updated, but it seems that was absolutely nothing that led up to this? (aside from mental illness, because mentally healthy people don't do this kind of thing.) Was grandma upset at baby girl? a freaking SLEDGEHAMMER and a KNIFE. sad sad sad all around..."I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day."

Sickening! The grandmother apparently doesn't speak English and needed a polish interpreter.
Prosecutor describes horrific slaying of baby
By Andy GrimmTribune reporter
3:45 p.m. CDT, October 7, 2013
Alone with her 6-month-old granddaughter, Alfreda Giedrojc is accused of placing the baby on the floor of her Oak Lawn home, taking a sledgehammer from a closet and striking the infant in the head.
When the baby continued to make noises, Giedrojc went to the kitchen and got a carving knife and slit the child's throat, a prosecutor said during a court hearing, where bail was denied for the 62-year-old grandmother.
Giedrojc stood silent and impassive as Assistant State's Attorney Michael Deno described the horrific slaying of Vivian Summers on Sunday. Giedrojc's daughter is the baby's mother.

That poor little darling. I hope this b***h is locked up for the rest of her pitiful life.
Definitely pre-meditated, she placed the sledgehammer there the night before. Also, the attack didn't happen until after her husband left, so I doubt she could plead that she simply 'snapped'. The son in law was only across the street, she wouldn't have had a lot of time alone with this child, so the attack must have been over very quickly (and started as soon as her husband left).
Were there any family issues recently? Could this have been some sort of sick 'pay back'? Or is this lady just very, very messed up?
Rest in peace, darling child. My thoughts are with your family.Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.

This is one of the worst crimes I've ever heard. The gm HAS to have had some sort of mental breakdown.My posts are IMO, MOO ...Unless I have a link to back it up.

she's the one who put a sledgehammer in the closet
sledgehammers belong in garages or barns, not closets
she premeditated it and she deserves the book thrown at her
the thread title needs to be changed to 'murdering' instead of 'striking'

No matter how hard I try, I just can't understand. My heart just hurts so much reading stories like this.
