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.

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.
