    So at the ripe old age of 8, this child is put in charge of an infant and a 3-year old and the infant dies. At the age of 15 she is pregnant with her own child. At the age of 16, she is accused of killing her child and is pregnant with her 2nd child. What is wrong with this story?

    This is really tragic on so many levels.

    And the mother has a year old child.

    From article:

    "Truong, a junior at South Community High School, lives with her mother, 31-year-old Van Truong, a year-old brother, another brother three years her junior, and a boyfriend of seven months..."

    Sad. So sad. It appears this family is caught in the cycle and can't find their way out. And now, with the current events, the story will just get more tragic. What chance is there that any of these children will finish high school, let alone become productive members of society? The family will now also have to deal with the stigma of having a murderer in the family if this girl is found guilty. Just sad.
