    IN - Christian, 23, & Jaiden Melcher, 11 mos, slain, Jeffersonville, 16 April 2005

    A man who police said strangled his pregnant wife and their 11 month old son, then stuffed their bodies into a household storage container where the bodies remained for about a week, has been charged with three counts of murder.

    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 August 2006:


    The Jeffersonville man who admitted murdering his pregnant wife and 11-month-old son is headed to prison for the rest of his life. On Thursday, a judge sentenced 28-year-old Zachariah Melcher to life in prison without the possibility of parole...

    Melcher admitted strangling Christian, who was eight months pregnant, and suffocating their 11-year-old son, Jaiden, by placing a plastic bag over his head.
