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

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 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.

Horror as supermarket worker gets arm stuck in a MEAT GRINDER

Gruesome: Authorities were called to an Illinois supermarket to rescue a man whose arm was stuck in a meat grinder.

Gruesome: Authorities were called to an Illinois supermarket to rescue a man whose arm was stuck in a meat grinder

A gruesome scene unfolded at a local Illinois supermarket when authorities were called in to rescue a man who got his arm stuck in a meat grinder.

When members of the Orland Park Fire Department arrived at the scene of the grisly accident, they were shocked to discover a middle-aged store employee with more than half his arm caught in the machine. 

Battalion chief Mike Schofield told ABC News that in his 35 years at the department, he had ‘never seen anything like this, other thank watching T.V. shows.’

Though apt, based on witness accounts, it seems that ‘horror movie’ would be a better comparison.

According to Schofield, the man’s was caught so deeply in the gears of the machine that first responders were unable to remove his arm even after dismantling some of the device. 

They were hesitant to take apart the entire machine any more for fear of taking off part of his arm.

While the victim was clearly in immense pain, Schofield explained that there wasn’t very much blood at the scene, because the grinder apparently cut of much of the circulation in his arm.

“There wasn’t a lot of blood because his hand was so tight in the meat grinder it almost acted like a tourniquet,” Schofield said.

Realizing that not much more could be done at the supermarket, paramedics took the man to the hospital with part of the device still attached to his arm.

Once there, they decided the only way to extricate the man’s arms from the grinder was by using what Schofield described as a miniature version of the Jaws of Life, the same tool firefighters use to shear through car doors and other metal objects.

“There’s a miniature hydraulic tool that we use to extract smaller items,’ he said. ‘It’s like the jaws of life but it’s a smaller version, so we used it to cut the metal apart and peel back the grinder. That took approximately 20 minutes to do.’

 
Crushed: Paramedics and doctors had to use a miniature version of the Jaws of Life to cut through the meat grinder.

Schofield said that during the process the man remained relatively calm, despite being in a great deal of pain.

“He was just praying. He was pretty sedated, but he was still in pain,” he said. “We had two paramedics constantly talking to him, reassuring him. We explained every step we were going to do. He was able to tell us when it hurt too much and we were able to back off and the doctors were providing pain medicine for him.” 

After firefighters and doctors managed to get the grinder off, pressure returned to the man’s arm and he began bleeding profusely. He was quickly taken of to surgery to repair the damage. 

Schofield said that the man’s arm was ‘OK’ but guessed that his hand would be heavily damaged. There were no more updates on the man’s condition.

NYC: Fury over Facebook campaign to prove innocence of New York nanny who ‘murdered two children in bath-tub’

Update – 11/09/12 – NYC — Fury over Facebook campaign to prove innocence of New York nanny who ‘murdered two children in bath-tub’

  • Facebook page set up in support of Yoselyn Ortega has caused a massive backlash on the social networking site
  • ‘Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega’ believes that the nanny was not responsible for the killings of six-year-old Lucia and two-year-old Leo
  • Mother Marina Krim, found her children dead the bathtub in Upper West Side apartment on October 25th

A Facebook campaign which claims alleged killer nanny Yoselyn Ortega was not responsible for the deaths of two children in her care has provoked outrage.

The page ‘Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega’ – set up by an anonymous group – is pleading for any information ‘that could help bring the real killer or killers to be arrested.’

And since the page was launched on October 29th – four days after the brutal stabbings of Lucia Krim and brother Leo in their Manhattan home – it has sparked fury from people who believe that Ortega, 50,  should ‘rot in hell’, be ‘put to death’ to those who think it is plain ‘disgusting’.

‘We believe she did not do this crime and she deserves to have her day in court to defend against the charges to prove her case in a not guilty verdict,’ said the administrators to Radaronline.com – who are now facing calls for them to shut down the page.

While the family nanny has admitted to harming the two children in her care on the Upper West Side, police sources have told the New York Daily News that she has not confessed to the double murder.

And users of the social networking site have responded with fury to some of the more outrageous allegations made on the page that are aimed at providing evidence for Ortega’s innocence.

‘This is absolutely disgusting,’ wrote one Facebook user.

‘I hope you burn in hell along with Yoselyn you piece of cr*p. You need a psych evaluation because it’s obvious you’re attention seeking.’

Claiming to represent the family of Yoselyn Ortega, the page has only received 16 ‘likes’ since its launch almost two weeks ago and asks readers to pray for her freedom.

Update – 11/02/12 – NEW YORK CITY — ‘I’m paid to watch the children, not to clean’: Manhattan killer nanny tells police she was angry at family because they asked her to do housework:

The nanny accused of stabbing two young children to death at their home before slitting her own throat told police when she woke up from her coma that she was angry because the family wanted her to clean as well as look after the children.

Dominican Republic native Yoselyn Ortega was questioned by police after allegedly butchered six-year-old Lucia and two-year-old Leo while they were under her care at an Upper West Side, Manhattan, apartment last week.

Law enforcement officials told the New York Post that Mr and Mrs Krim asked their financially-strapped nanny to do simple housework as a way to earn money, thinking they were doing her a good turn. All this did was enrage her.

‘She said something like, “I’m paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework”,’ a law-enforcement source said of Yoselyn Ortega’s statements to police after she woke up from a medically-induced coma on Sunday.

‘There was friction between her and the family.’

In Ortega’s brief statement to police, she said her employers had arranged to give her an extra five hours a week in housekeeping work to help her make more money, law-enforcement sources told the Post.

‘They were asking her to clean and do housework and she was unhappy because it interfered with her doctor’s appointments.’

It was also revealed today that Marina and Kevin Krim were worried about Ortega’s job performance in the weeks leading up to the October 25 slaying and had told her that if she didn’t improve her job performance they might need to replace her.

A law-enforcement source told the Post: ‘She was told that if she didn’t improve her work, she would be let go.’

Last week, the mother of CNBC executive Kevin Krim said that the young family treated Ortega, as they would one of their own, ‘bending over backwards’ to help her and even buying plane tickets so she could fly to the Dominican Republic with them.

Oretega allegedly repaid this kindness by murdering her children before trying to kill herself. Marina Krim discovered her son and daughter, Leo and Lulu, in a pool of blood in a bathtub, each with multiple stab wounds.

She was due to meet Ortega and her other two children at the local swimming pool with her now only surviving child Nessie, three. But when they failed to show up, she returned to her three-bedroom, $10,000-a-month pre-war apartment at West 75th Street and found it dark, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

When she went into the bedroom, she discovered her children in a pool of blood and a bleeding Ortega.

The nanny, who had slit her wrists, then plunged a kitchen knife into her own neck as the horrified mother walked into the grisly scene, police said. She stabbed herself with such force that she fractured a vertebra in her neck, police said.

Though she looked after the children for two years and was treated like part of the family, the 50-year-old did not ask about them when she woke from her coma, asking instead about her own family before falling back under sedation. Police plan on questioning her again. Charges have yet to be filed.

Ortega’s sister Miladys said she spoke to her sister in the days leading up to the massacre and she gave her no indication anything was wrong.

But the nanny’s neighbors said she appeared in troubled in the weeks leading up to the murders and she had been struggling with money issues – which is why the Krims offered her more work.

Ortega remains at nearby New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Toxicology tests performed on Ortega came back negative.

Neighbor Rima Starr, 63, recalls the moment she heard Mrs Krim make the grisly discovery.: ‘I heard blood curdling screams and I went down to the lobby and there was the mother screaming, hunched over the three year old.

‘At time she was screaming things like: “I’ll never speak to her again”, repeating that over and over again, then “it’s all right, you’ll be all right, you’ll be alright” to the child.

‘Then she would get waves of the reality of what just happened and then she’d go into just plain bloodcurdling screams with her arms flailing out to the sides.’

One neighbor revealed the superintendent of the apartment block went into the apartment and questioned Ortega, demanding: ‘So you cut her throat? So you stabbed her in the neck?’

His wife then came out to assist and told horrified neighbours who had heard the screams: ‘Two babies, in the bath, nanny’ and made a cutting sign across her throat.

Mrs Friedman added: ‘At that point I knew the nanny had something to do with it’.

Neighbours dialed 911 and, although Lulu and Leo reportedly appeared to be breathing when medics arrived, they were pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.

Ortega was unresponsive but was taken to New York-Cornell Hospital in a critical but stable condition. She was in a stable condition on Friday morning and police sources say she may have also taken pills.

Mrs Krim and Nessie, who had not witnessed the grisly scene, were also taken to hospital for treatment, and Mrs Krim was sedated.

A neighbour told the Wall Street Journal the woman had left the building ‘inconsolable, hysterical, frantic’.

Her husband, Kevin Krim, had been on a business trip and was met by police at the airport when he returned to New York. Officers recounted the horror to him and he was escorted to the hospital.

Mr and Mrs Krim remained at St. Luke’s hospital last night with Mrs Krim’s sister. Police said the shocked mother was unable to communicate.

On Friday, neighbour Charlotte Friedman said she believes she was the last one to see the children alive and that the nanny had looked ‘cold’ just half an hour before the murders.

She said that she was in the elevator with Ortega, who had a ‘poker face’ and appeared unemotional despite Lulu and Leo playing around.

‘I was playing with the children in the elevator,’ Friedman said. ‘The girl looked so delightful. I asked her if she was going on a play date or something and she said she was going home.

‘I said, “What did you do,” and she said, “Dancing.” And that was it – they were only on the second floor so they left.

‘She was smiling, happy, happy happy. The nanny just smiled – and nothing. The nanny was a colder type from most nannies that I have encountered.

‘She was poker faced. She wasn’t the warmest person. I never saw her as the warmest nanny.’

Ortega’s niece, Katherine Garcia, added that her aunt had been ‘acting kind of nervous lately’ but insisted that she had loved the children.

Friends said she had lost her apartment in the Bronx and was forced to move in her sister in Harlem. Police added that her family said she may have visited a psychologist recently.

Police said there were no immediate explanations for the murders and suicide attempt. Paul J. Browne, from the police department, told the New York Times he did not know a note had been left.

The family had moved to New York from San Francisco within the last few years, and Mr Krim was named general manager of CNBC’s digital media division in March.

He is a Harvard graduate and has recently worked at Bloomberg and Yahoo, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The children’s grandmother on their father’s side, Karen Krim, told said that the family hired Ortega a year ago, until which time Mrs Krim had been a stay-at-home mother.

When Leo was born, they searched for a nanny. They even spent nine days with her family in the Dominican Republic, as documented on Mrs Krim’s online journal.

‘They just bent over backwards being nice to this woman,’ Karen Kim told the New York Daily News. ‘They were always doing things that were just fabulous for her. I’m just astounded, and I have no idea why something like this would happen.’

She added: ‘We’re just having a really, really hard time here. It’s the worst nightmare any parent could ever have.’

Mrs Krim, who teaches weekly art lessons to children, kept an online journal entitled ‘Life with the Krim Kids’, which she had last updated just three hours before the murders.

She had written: ‘Leo speaks in the most adorable way possible.’

The online journal paints a tender picture of her life with her husband and their beloved children, and gives an insight into the horrendous loss that has befallen the family.

She documents trips to pick apples, visits to pumpkin patches and playdates. Photographs show the children playing happily together around the home and on their first days of school.

‘One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself,’ she wrote. ‘Ok, I’m near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!!’

She added how he loved to play with toy cars and trucks, and would set up his own ‘kitchen’ in the living room where he would pretend to make bacon.

‘Lito, I must say, is a very clever little boy,’ she wrote. ‘He is super talkative and just has a million thoughts running through his brain and can express himself amazingly well for an almost-2 year old.  I’m thinking he could be a Mini-Kevin.’

The family lives in one of the city’s most idyllic neighborhoods, just a block from Central Park and a few more from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

It is home to many affluent families, and seeing children accompanied by nannies is an everyday part of life there, making the idea of such violence even more disturbing to residents.

Mrs Friedman added that the Krims are a quiet, nice friendly’ family.

She said: ‘They were sweet people. They had two large dogs they used to walk, they were greyhounds I think. The children were full of life.’

All morning a steady stream of passers by stopped off at the apartment block to lay flowers, some of whom were in tears.

Among the tributes was a card on some flowers which read: ‘Dear Krim Family. We weep with you at your horrible loss. There are no words that can express our sadness. We pray for you and your beautiful children.

‘Every mother and father weeps with you and your family during this dark time’.

Police officers could be seen taking bags of evidence out of the building and at one point removed what appeared to be a long piece of wood which was about 12ft long.

‘LIFE WITH THE KRIM KIDS’: DOCUMENTING A HAPPY FAMILY

Marina Krim’s online journal, Life with the Krim Kids, paints a tender picture of life with her husband and their children – and gives an insight into the horrendous loss that has befallen the family.

Consisting of mostly photographs, the blog documents trips to pick apples, visits to pumpkin patches and playdates. Images show the children playing happily together around the home, on their first days of school and at ballet recitals

‘One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself,’ she wrote. ‘Ok, I’m near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!!’

‘Lito, I must say, is a very clever little boy. He is super talkative and just has a million thoughts running through his brain and can express himself amazingly well for an almost-2 year old.  I’m thinking he could be a Mini-Kevin.’

Hours before his death, she wrote: ‘Leo speaks in the most adorable way possible.’

Of her eldest daughter Lulu, who was also killed on Thursday, she joked: ‘Lulu is in love. His name is Joakim, he’s 1/2 British, 1/2 Swedish.  He lives in our apartment building and speaks with a British accent, is a total hipster and we love his parents. She gets totally giddy around him. Not sure Lulu knows this but Joakim has 2 other girlfriends as well…’

She later added: ‘Lulu has another boyfriend — When I picked her up from school yesterday, she told me that Martin (pronounced ‘Mar-teen’, he’s half-french, half-peruvian) is her boyfriend and her valentine.  Apparently, she kissed him twice.’

Last year, she wrote: ‘When I ask Lulu what she wants to be when she grows up, she always says she wants to be a Mama. And she is going to be a really good one.’

In February, she added photos from the family’s trip to the Dominican Republic, where they saw the family of their nanny.

‘It was wonderful,’ she wrote. ‘And we met Josie’s amazing family! The Dominican Republic is a wonderful country!!’
