    Oh this is just sick..and the uncle was also her boyfriend! Nice... He died in prison I wonder what that was all about? Hopefully it was an inside job from someone who heard about what he had done to the little girl. :mad:

    I hope that he was beaten to death, just like he beat this innocent, little girl. I object to using taxpayer's money for an inquest. He's where he belongs.

    In almost all cases of abuse I would be thrilled with this out come.
    Not this one.

    This women had an IQ of 65???
    And her "boyfriend" was also her uncle???? This is one of the rare cases when I think she may have been just as much of a victim as her child.

    They said he just died right after the sentencing. But I wonder if he was struggling with the cops and they gave a little what for. Things get covered up like that. He died probably over a month ago and they still haven't released anything more about it. Both the mother and the uncle were mentally slow and she had been investigated more than once by DCFS.

    Breese pleaded guilty in June to aggravated battery of a child by accountability. The other charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement in exchange for a sentence of six to 20 years in prison.


    Why do they give plea agreements? It just burns me. It's like rewarding the criminal for their behavior. This woman will end up doing 6 years as they always end up serving a third of their sentence. Six years in exchange for the life of that little girl.

    That is so sad that the mother sat and watched as her little daughter was beaten to death. If someone had ever said "get your ***** ass over here" to one of my kids he would have seen a ***** and it wouldn't have been my child. Shacking up with her uncle. That is so sick. Her dad said "she's always been real nice to her kids!" That's real nice to sit and watch your child be beaten to death and not do anything. Retarded or not a mother shouldn't have her children if she isn't going to keep them safe.

    I agree she should not have had custody but imo that was someone else dropping the ball not the mentally challenged mother.
    She was investigated by DCF and they clearly did nothing. But lets all note that they got away with their dereliction of duty.
