    MD - Roy Lechner, 3, beaten to death, Dundalk, 1 March 2005

    The Dundalk woman charged with child abuse that resulted in the death of her 3-year-old son - just months after the unexplained death of her infant son - avoided a potential murder prosecution by pleading guilty yesterday to the most serious abuse charge against her.

    As a result of Denise Lechner's guilty plea, Baltimore County prosecutors said yesterday that they will not seek an indictment charging the 26-year-old woman with second-degree murder.

    Prosecutors said they plan to seek the maximum sentence - 30 years in prison - for Lechner, who was regularly visited by county social workers concerned about her parenting skills before the death of her son Roy Lechner Jr. in March.

    Less serious child abuse charges and a District Court case, charging Lechner with neglecting Roy Jr. and her 6-month-old son, who died in November, were dismissed yesterday.
    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?
