Another case of the mentally ill killing--the man left the body of his girlfriend's five year old son in the oven-- www.khou.com
(I tried to post the exact link but couldn't get it to work--my apologies--new story so you should be able to get it for some time this way at least.)
The man stated to LE that he hadn't take his medication for some time, had NO INTENTION of taking his medicine, and had killed the child.
He was judged incompetent for beating to death his younger sister (also a child at the time) with a barbell and sentenced to a mental health facility--released after LESS THAN ONE YEAR.
He was obviously "cured," wasn't he?
Our system stinks with the smell of decay of children's bodies. Sorry to be so graphic, but it sickens me to see that yet another child has died for this reason.
You can see why mentally ill people in Texas are convicted and sent to prison, because our system has no way to keep safe society from the ones who are incompetent to stand trial because of insanity--Less than a year after he beat his little sister to death--Give him some pills and set the man free to kill again.
