    Snip:
    Rachel West’s parents were “lazy” and indifferent to her survival, Hamilton County prosecutors alleged Wednesday as the murder trial began in the 2009 starvation death of the 10-week-old child.

    When born, the infant weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce. When she died 71 days later, Nov. 26, she weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces

    Burroughs criticized Hull and West for letting the child essentially live in a “dirty” car seat while they fought, each suggesting the other needed to care for the infant. The child starved to death even though police found five full, unopened cans of baby formula in the home. :banghead:

    When Hull realized the infant was dead – West wasn’t home at the time – she first cleaned her home before calling 911, Burroughs said

    SNIP

    This poor baby, she must have suffered very much! This breaks my heart! Just to think these grown people had free health care for the child and never took advantage of that. Then to top it off they had unopened cans of formula that they never opened!!:sick:
