Father ‘who hacked his disabled son’s head off and left it by the road for his mom to see believed the boy, 7, was a dummy or robot’

01/31/13, MailOnline — A father accused of hacking his disabled son’s head off with a meat cleaver and leaving it by the road for the boy’s mother to see, thought his seven-year-old son was actually a dummy or a robot, psychiatrists said today.

Defense experts told a judge in the murder case of Jeremiah Wright, from Louisiana, that he was suffering a delusion at the time of the brutal murder of Jori Lirette, seven, who suffered from cerebral palsy.

Psychiatrist Sarah DeLand and psychologist Robert Storer testified that Wright thought his son was really a government social experiment and told them: ‘I don’t believe they can do anything to me because it wasn’t a real person. His skull was made of plastic. He had foam in him.’

The boy was killed on August 14, 2011. Since that time, the delusion has persisted and it will hinder Wright’s ability to help his attorneys, psychiatrists said during the sanity hearing.

If Wright is tried and convicted, he faces life in prison or death by lethal injection.

He is accused of killing and dismembering the boy after his mother Jesslyn Lirette threatened to kick him out of their Louisiana home.
A passing motorist found Jori after Wright allegedly left his head in the front yard for his mother to see. His hands and feet were also hacked off and found in a garbage bag.

Disabled Jori, who was wheelchair-bound due to cerebal palsy and heart problems and also had limited speech, was found by a passing motorist after being allegedly decapitated by his father last week.

The crime scene was so gruesome that some of the police who responded to the emergency call have had to have counseling, according to AZCentral.

Investigators said the grisly killing was carried out over a kitchen sink at the Louisiana home the boy shared with his father and his mother Jesslyn.

Baby killed after her mother’s boyfriend shook, slapped, kicked and forcefully threw the child onto his bed where she bounced over four feet onto the floor

Article published by Dailymail.co.uk (also known as MailOnline) on 01/25/13 — Tragic 9-month-old girl is ‘beaten to death’ by her mother’s boyfriend in senseless fit of rage

A 23-year-old man stands accused of beating to death his girlfriend’s 9-month-old baby girl.

The infant, identified as Ariel Eluziario, was first taken to a hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts at 6pm Thursday and then flown via helicopter to a children’s hospital in Providence, Rhode Island where she was pronounced dead around 10pm.

Last Christmas: Ariel Eluziario celebrated her first and only Christmas in 2012. She was brutally beaten and later died allegedly at the hands of her mother's 23-year-old boyfriend Ethen Harrison

Though the girl’s mother has not been identified, Mail Online was able to obtain photos of the tragically slain little girl through the accused killer’s public Facebook profile.

Ethen Harrison of New Bedford was arraigned in district court today on charges of reckless endangerment of a child, assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

He is currently being held without bail.

Harrison’s Facebook profile, which lists his occupation as ‘F*** That Sh**!!!!,’ also lists him as ‘In a Relationship’ with Amanda Eluziario.

Photos of the young couple together, the adorable little girl, and of both Harrison and Eluziario with the little girl remain on Eluziario’s profile.

So cold: Ethen Harrison, right, admitted to police he slapped, shook and dropped Arial Eluziario four feet off a bed. The 9-month-old girl was pronounced dead Jan. 24

Harrison admitted to police he slapped, shook and dropped Ariel Eluziario four feet off a bed. The 9-month-old girl was pronounced dead Jan. 24, 2013

Much of the photo section of Amanda Eluzario’s profile is dedicated to shots of the smiling little Ariel Lillian.
In one particularly jarring photo, Harrison looks down at the baby, sneering as she cries helplessly.

Brutally slain: As part of their move to revoke accused baby killer Ethen Harrison's bail, prosecutors in the case said Ariel Eluziario suffered 'subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse'

As part of their move to revoke accused baby killer Ethen Harrison’s bail, prosecutors in the case said Ariel Eluziario suffered ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’

Harrison, who was not Ariel’s father, was the only person with the baby at the time of the incident.

He was out on bail for unrelated pending charges including larceny and threats to commit a crime at the time of the slaying.
Harrison’s own father has held a restraining order against his son since June.

‘He is out of control,’ the father, Francis Harrison, attested in court documents. ‘When he mad he breaks things, windows, doors. Whatever he gets his hands on. He hurts himself. He carries knives.’

It is unclear if the weapon referred to in the charges against Harrison is a knife. Also unclear is the exact nature of all the injuries that led to Ariel Eluziario’s extremely untimely death.

Though police descriptions of her tragic end are vague, prosecutors submitted the child’s ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’ as reasons the judge should revoke Harrison’s bail.

Harrison admitted during police questioning that he’d dropped Ariel onto the floor, forcefully picked her back up, threw her onto the bed and caused her to bounce four feet back down onto the floor. He also admitted to shaking and slapping the child.

Mother finds 18-month-old daughter chopped in pieces, roasting in oven after leaving her under the care of relatives

A toddler was murdered at this home in Oldonda village in eastern Siberia by her uncle

A man chopped up his 18-month-old niece then roasted her body parts in an oven, police said today.

Andrey Gadzhiev, the child’s 34-year-old uncle, was drunk when he was left in the care of the toddler for fifteen minutes while his sister, 29-year-old Elena Titova, went to visit a neighbour.  When she returned there was no sign of the child and her intoxicated brother could not explain what had happened to her. The child’s mother came home shortly after and went to search for the girl before noticing  an odd smell coming from the stove. When she opened it, the horrified mother discovered her 18-month-old toddler’s roasted remains.

Andrey Gadzhiev (pictured under the blanket) would later tell police the little girl died when he “pushed her and she fell on floor”.

According to police, Andrey Gadzhiev  ‘showed no emotion when he admitted to killing the child, chopping her in pieces and placing her in the hot oven. He also had no explanation as to why he pushed the toddler but told police he panicked and “hid the child in the oven”.

I was trying to hide her body so I put her in the oven,’ Gadzhiev said.

According to police, the mother searched the house in Oldonda village in eastern Siberia, but then noticed a strange smell from the stove. Opening the hot oven, she discovered the burnt remains her toddler daughters body. The horrified mother then noticed a fragment of the child’s leg near the sink in the kitchen.

Very few details aside from the horrific description already told by Siberian police.

Mother deemed insane when she drowned her toddler in 2010 is freed after doctors say she’s regained her sanity

(DAILYMAIL) — A mother who was deemed insane after drowning her three-year-old daughter in the bathtub has been allowed to walk free from jail just three years later – because doctors say she regained her sanity.

Jennifer Bigham, from Modesto, California, admitted killing the toddler in 2010 and was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity.

After doctors ruled she is now sane, Bigham has been allowed to walk free and was released from jail on Tuesday.

Jennifer Bigham, 23, was being held without bail in the Stanislaus County Jail on suspicion of child abuse and murder in the death of her daughter, Alexandrea, sheriff's deputies said.

The 26-year-old was pictured smiling in her blue hospital gown as she was released from the hospital.

Two relatives who were in the home at the time of the drowning heard the little girl splash and scream. By the time they got to the bathroom, she was unconscious and Bigham had stabbed herself and locked herself inside a bedroom.

The judge’s decision is said to be extremely rare, especially because the judge did not send her to a psychiatric hospital after the ruling, but to jail.

School of Law Professor John Meyers told CBS: ‘I understand why people would be upset, but what you have to understand is a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity, means not guilty.’

‘It may seem anomalous to people that a person who murders a child could go “free” after three years, but what people need to remember is that if it’s a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity, don’t forget the not guilty part.’

He said the doctor’s report would have been crucial to the judge’s decision, especially if she was deemed to not be a danger to herself or others.

Prosecutors disagree and are going to appeal the decision.
‘She’s a danger to society,’ said Elaine Casillas, a deputy district attorney, according to the Bee. ‘She’s not been evaluated properly.’

The same doctors who believed Bigham was insane at the time of her toddler’s death re-examined her and testified Tuesday that her sanity is restored.

The Worst Case of Child Abuse In US History – The Murder of Baby Brianna (GRAPHIC)

brianna_lopez

Brianna Mariah Lopez a.k.a “Baby Brianna” (February 14, 2002 – July 19, 2002)

Brianna Lopez who is also known to many as “Baby Brianna”, was a baby girl who was born in a New Mexico hospital on Valentines Day, 2002 to her mother, Stephanie Lopez and her father, Andy Walters. She would have turned eleven years old on February 14, 2013 but sadly, she never made it.

When Baby Brianna left the hospital after her birth she moved into a home in Las Cruces, N.M. shared by her parents and Uncle, Steven Lopez.

The abuse started almost immediately. Instead of hugs and kisses Brianna received slaps and pinches. She was tormented on a daily basis, both verbally and physically. Slapped, kicked, punched, pinched, thrown, raped, etc. You name it this infant endured it.

When Brianna would cry at the pain that was inflicted on her, her abusers would laugh and stuff her mouth with clothing to muffle her screams. Her own mother would bite and pinch her when she got frustrated by the crying, but for the most part it was the infant’s father and uncle who tormented her while Stephanie sat back and ignored her daughter’s cries.

Medical examiners would later report the marks as being both old and new which proved prolong abuse. Brianna also had bleeding on her brain, both old and new, as well as broken ribs, broken legs, broken arms, lacerations to her fingers, vagina and anus. She had been abused everyday of her short life.

Baby Brianna was what many would consider a strong baby because she managed to survive 153 days despite coming into this cruel world weighing only several pounds.

On the evening of July 18th, 2002 Andy went out to purchase beer and when he came home they all proceeded to get drunk. Stephanie claimed to have had only a few beers before heading to bed in the same room the others were in. During this time both Andy and Steven decided to play their own sick, demented game where they would toss Brianna up in the air, let her hit the ceiling and watch her tumble to the ground. They would later tell authorities that Brianna was screaming and wailing when this was happening. Apparently the baby’s mother didn’t hear her daughter screaming and crying in agony.

Early the next morning on July 19, 2002 at approximately 7:15a.m. Stephanie awoke to Brianna crying and noticed fresh bruises on her and asked the others what happened. They told her that they may have been “a little to rough with her last night”. She accepted their answer and ignored her child’s injuries.

That same morning Stephanie noticed Brianna needed a diaper change and Andy volunteered to do it.  During the diaper change he wrapped a baby wipe around his finger and inserted it into Brianna’s anus. He also sodomized her with foreign objects. When Stephanie noticed Brianna near death she ignored it and decided to wait several hours before calling an ambulance. When she did find the time to call them, she lied and told them her daughter had fallen from her high chair. Apparently she was delusional enough to think authorities would by that story.

Brianna was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:10AM. She was just 5 months and 5 days old.

This photo shows the back of Brianna’s head where you can see a large bite mark to her earlobe.

The first officer to see baby Brianna in the hospital was Detective Lindell Wright. He remembers one thought going through his mind:  “I’ve got a lot to do.” 

“Literally bruised from head to toe, from the top of her head all throughout her body all the way to the big toe on her right foot.” said Governor Susana Martinez who prosecuted Brianna’s family.

They took sadistic joy out of torturing this infant. Not one family member cared about her, not one of them attempted to protect her and there’s zero proof to suggest she was ever shown love in her short life. She was there for their own sadistic amusement.

When police searched the home they couldn’t find one toy or even a photo of Brianna laughing or smiling.  No evidence to indicate she enjoyed one moment of her life.

Many relatives including Brianna’s grandparents knew what was occurring but ignored it. They knew their granddaughter was being raped by both her father and uncle, they knew she had pinch marks from head to toe in different stages of healing, they knew she was being tormented and had marks, cuts and lacerations but they turned a blind eye and let it continue for five, going on six more months until baby Brianna’s little body couldn’t handle the abuse any longer.

Officer Wright has seen alot during his career but Brianna’s case will haunt him for life.

“I cried my eyes out. It will stay with me for the rest of my life. It tests you to the point you’re not sure you can speak,””You’re afraid that the emotion will take over.” said Wright.

At the time Brianna was murdered a person who committed intentional child abuse resulting in death faced a maximum of 18 years in prison.

“Eighteen years for the life of a child?” State Sen. Mary Jane Garcia of Doña Ana said. “I thought it was absurd.”

It took three years of trying and in 2005, Senate Bill 166, also known as the “Baby Brianna Bill” was officially signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. The bill made child abuse, which results in death, a first degree felony in New Mexico and set the mandatory minimum sentence at 30 years in prison.

Three relatives, including her grandparents, were sentenced to 30 days in jail for failing to report the abuse. The maximum is one year.

Stephanie Lopez was convicted of negligent child abuse after she failed to do anything to help her child.  The New Mexico Corrections Department said that she could be released as early as September 28, 2016. Less than 15 for her daughter’s torture death. The New Mexico State Parole Board said that it’s almost certain that she’ll be released, provided that she finds a suitable home and can meet the requirements of her release conditions.

The public was outraged when they heard about the possible release. Dozens created petitions which quickly gained signatures and many called the Governor.

brianna_lopez_gravesite

Thousands of people in the community weeped over Brianna’s horrific death. Mourners who never had the chance to meet Brianna in life came together for the baby girl in her after-life. They paid for her casket and burial and claimed her body when nobody else did. Her gravesite became a memorial site with dozens of toys and flowers, something Brianna’s family didn’t approve of.

Brianna’s family and relatives didn’t put a penny towards the child’s funeral, burial and grave-stone. Heck, they didn’t even claim her, the community did. Her family didn’t want Brianna to receive love even after her death and went out of their way to purchase a cage to go over her gravestone in an attempt to shield her. The cage is a mess, unkempt and full of trash.

The community refused to let Brianna and her story simmer and still placed flowers around the cage. They’ve also created another memorial site to visit and remember the little girl who never had a chance.

When asked why they put a cage over Brianna’s grave-site, Brianna’s family had little to say.

“They were asked, and they said they just wanted to be left alone and they wanted Brianna to be left alone,” Martinez said.

Inside the cage is a cherub with a finger raised to her lips. Some believe it’s a message.

“My first thought was, ‘Let’s not talk about what’s occurred here,'” Lopez said.

The community vows to not let that happen.  People still visit and leave flowers and have built another marker as well.  Brianna’s story has been told dozens of times and is still being told over a decade later on websites and online memorials including  Brianna Lopez Last Memories and Facebook memorials such as In Loving Memory of Baby Brianna

Detectives, social workers and prosecutors who worked on her case will also remember Brianna.

“Before they started the autopsy and her little face was lying on a white sheet and I thought she looks asleep,” Wright said. “So I just took the picture.”

The picture was photo-shopped to edit out all the marks, bruises and scars she had.  It’s the Brianna the community likes to remember.

“There’s a photograph of her to carry on of her little life,” Wright said.

The picture hangs on the wall next to Susana Martinez’s desk.

“It’s a reminder, of course, of why we do what we do,” Martinez said. “If you forget you’ll either become calloused or you will become Jell-O. “You can’t do this job well unless you are in the middle, and that’s just a good reminder why we do it.”

Brianna is never far from the detective either. “It drives me to work harder to prevent, to be a voice for every child of abuse,” Wright said. “That’s what it does.”

Wayne County man is acquitted in death of his son, who drank drain cleaner in meth house

bryan_daniels_acquitted

BOWLING GREEN — A Wayne County man was not responsible for the gruesome death of his 20-month-old son, who drank drain cleaner allegedly used to make methamphetamine, a jury ruled Friday.

The jury acquitted Bryan Daniels, 22, of murder in the May 30, 2009, death of his son Kayden, as well as an alternate charge of second-degree manslaughter.

After deliberating nearly seven hours, the jury also found Daniels not guilty on charges of endangering Kayden and of being involved in a criminal syndicate to produce meth.

Circuit Judge Vernon Miniard Jr. earlier ruled Daniels not guilty on a charge of making meth.

Daniels and members of his family and defense team, led by Somerset attorney Mark Stanziano, burst into tears and hugged when Miniard announced the verdict. Daniels has served 44 months in jail or on house arrest since Kayden died and faced a sentence of 20 years to life if convicted of murder. Instead, he left the courthouse a free man nearly four years after his son’s death. Daniels was tried in Warren Circuit Court in Bowling Green because a jury could not be seated in Wayne County.

Daniels said the first thing he plans to do is visit Kayden’s grave, which he has never seen.

“I’m very happy, very happy,” Daniels said. “Kayden was with me today. He knowed I wouldn’t do nothing to hurt him.”

Daniels said he has a job lined up remodeling restaurants in Indiana, and he said he will try to improve his life.

Daniels said he shouldn’t have been charged with causing his son’s death.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Matthew Leveridge had no comment on the verdict.

However, he said he will prosecute three others charged in connection with Kayden’s death. They are Danny Anderson Jr. and James Hunt, who allegedly made meth in the bedroom of the small mobile home where Kayden lived and are charged with murder, and Larry Branham, who rented the trailer and allegedly facilitated the crimes.
