    NY - Melesha Francis, 26, & Michael Stolz, 6, murdered, Brooklyn, 24 June 2002

    The killings were sparked when the boy spilled a bottle of bubble liquid at 10 p.m. and Smith flew into a rage, according to testimony at the Brooklyn Supreme Court trial.

    Smith yelled at the boy, which angered his mother. The couple wound up in a screaming match that escalated until Smith slapped his girlfriend and then strangled her with a belt.

    Francis, a college student, was eight months pregnant.

    Smith then turned his fury on Michael, luring him into the bathtub, officials charged.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    From July 2005:


    A Brooklyn paralegal who once faced the death penalty for the horrific 2002 double murders of his pregnant girlfriend and her 6-year-old son was sentenced yesterday to life in prison.

    Larry Smith, 33, apologized in Brooklyn Supreme Court for strangling Melesha Francis, 25, with his hands and a belt and then luring Michael Stolz into a bath and drowning him in June 2002.
