    Sad, sad story....considering they were at a cemetary, sounds like more to this story. I hope he has other family local.

    I am pretty sure there is a lot we have not heard. Unfortunately, Monroe a County is not known to update these crimes very well. I hope we hear more. The poor young man is going to have unbelievable memories to carry the rest of his life. I can only pray he has other family that can help and guide him through the days and years ahead.

    Yes I'm quoting myself because looking at half the cases here, I answer my own question.

    Ugh, from your second link:

    The boy's mom was legally drunk when she tried to burn him up which makes it hard for me to be sympathetic even if she does have a mental health issue. According to court documents she attempted to burn her son to death because he was overweight. That she eventually released him from the car makes me believe she knew she was doing something wrong - as opposed to being in some sort of psychotic episode. So sick or not she intended to kill him at one point.

    But I'm not a mental health professional so it's JMO. In any case her son is the victim here; if mom is sick then I hope she gets help.

    Most of all though I hope this child will get all the love and support he deserves.

    :tears:

    Yes, MsMarple, it is the young boy I am concerned about. He will never get over this incident. I just hope he can get supportive care from all who love and care about him,

    Unfortunately, it sounds like this family is not the cream of the crop!

    Up above it reads that this mother has a daughter who has a child with the murderer of Chelsea Bruck.

    Also, if this mother was drunk, what was she doing driving with her son in the car?!

    June 29:

    The woman accused of setting a car on fire with her young son tied up inside allegedly committed the act because the boy was overweight.

    The motive for Sherri Richter’s alleged actions was revealed in court documents, which also showed she was legally drunk at the time.

    Richter, 48, was arraigned this morning on charges of assault with intent to murder and arson after police said she set fire to a car at a cemetery with her 11-year-old son temporarily trapped inside. The boy eventually was released unharmed.

    She had been found competent to stand trial. One report found her sane at tije of incident; one report found her insane at that time.
