    I can't believe what I just read. Damnit.

    No free pass on mom and her sob story. Nice special ed teacher. Shudder.

    Poor kid tried to jump out of moving vehicle so he didn't have to come home to the horror. At least one son made it out alive.

    I am So sick of hearing all the excuses!! He made me, he won't let me, blah, blah, blah. This woman went to work every day. She had every opportunity to get help ( if needed) to remove the monster from her home. She CHOSE to let him abuse her children. Smh. I hope she rots right along side the other monster.

    She is worse than the boyfriend, IMO. MC is just evil. She allowed it to happen to her own children. A cat is a better mother than that.

    I'm glad she got charged... She won't be a very convincing witness in the murder trial though, given her past lies. The surviving son will have to testify, sadly, and let's hope he comes across as more truthful than his mother. If the ex says that Otto really did fall down the stairs and the mother made up this story out of malice, they might have a difficult time convincing a jury.

    MOO :moo:

    I agree mother will probably not be held accountable even if she is convicted as an accessory. It seems these mothers always get leniency when, IMO, they are just as culpable when they stand by and watch their child be abused. I really would like to see more effort to hold mothers accountable for what happens to their child when the mother places them in harm's way. Unfortunately, I am not very hopeful of this coming to pass anytime soon.

    One would reasonably assume that after cases like this and the Teghan Skiba torture murder by mom's boyfriend, and countless other similar scenarios, people would take notice and demand something be done to protect minors from mothers who not only put them in harm's way but leave them there to suffer a litany of abuse. But, sadly, nothing changes.

    Never heard of this case... Those disgusting , vile monsters ; _____. deleted (fill in the blank with your imagination ) :banghead:

    I usually skip reading these cases. Now I know why.

    Rest in gentle peace, Otto !!

    I believe he is in a place of light and peace , with no memory of the horrors inflicted on him. LOOK at his photo where he's by the lake or wherever, he's got a smile on his face. Maybe it was a special day/outing for him ?
    I hope his brother is doing ok !!

    What I'd like to do to that so-called 'mother' and her worthless bf. :stormingmad:
    How about letting the punishment fitting the crime ?
    :moo:
