Nanny Caught On Hidden Camera Abusing 7-month-old BABY (TX)

Published: 08/20/12 By: Dailymail (Link below.)

A Texas nanny has been charged with  smothering a seven-month-old baby girl who was in her care multiple times a day  after being caught on a hidden camera.

Tirza Magana, 48, was arrested on Wednesday  after an unidentified couple from Houston came across some disturbing footage on  their nanny cam.

Magana was employed to care for the couple’s  baby after the child was born in January. In late May, the parents noticed that  something was amiss with their little girl, who was acting strange and appeared  lethargic.

The concerned parents decided to install a  hidden camera in their home to see what was happening when they were not around,  the TV station KHOUreported.

Not before long, the couple saw recordings of  Magana carrying the baby around by the head, throwing her into the crib like a  rag doll, and smothering the child by covering her nose and mouth and ‘applying  pressure,’ according to court documents.

‘She places both hands over the complainant’s  nose and mouth and applies force… causing the baby to flail about, struggling  to breathe,’ the documents stated.

The parents immediately fired the 48-year-old  nanny and contacted the authorities.

According to investigators, Magana has admitted  that she smothered the baby multiple times a day for a month and even realized  that her actions could have caused the baby’s death.

Dr Sheela Lahoti, professor of pediatrics at  the University of Texas Health Science Center,  who reviewed the footage,  said the infant was ‘at risk for suffocation and/or neck or spine injury due to  the actions’ of Magana, according to an arrest warrant cited by the Houston Chronicle.

Magana has been charged with child  endangerment, a felony, and was released on $10,000 bond on Friday.

The 1995 Murder Of Jennifer Ertman & Elizabeth Pena

 the murders of Jennifer (”Jenny”) Ertman & Elizabeth Pina

Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena were 14 and 16 years old, respectively. They were friends who attended the same high school in Houston, Texas, Waltrip High School. On June 24, 1993, the girls spent the day together….and then died together.

They were last seen by friends about 11:15 at night, when they left a friend’s apartment to head home, to beat summer curfew at 11:30. They knew they would be late if they took the normal path home, down W. 34th Street to T.C. Jester, both busy streets. They also knew they would have to pass a sexually-oriented business on that route and so decided to take a well-known shortcut down a railroad track and through a city park to Elizabeth’s neighborhood.

While Jenny and Elizabeth were living the last few hours of their lives, Peter Cantu, Efrain Perez, Derrick Sean O’Brien, Joe Medellin and Joe’s 14 year old brother were initiating a new member, Raul Villareal, into their gang, known as the Black and Whites. Raul was an acquaintance of Efrain and was not known to the other gang members. They had spent the evening drinking beer and then “jumping in” Raul. This means that the new member was required to fight every member of the gang until he passed out and then he would be accepted as a member. Testimony showed that Raul lasted through three of the members before briefly losing consciousness.

The gang continued drinking and ‘shooting the breeze’ for some time and then decided to leave. Two brothers who had been with them but testified that they were not in the gang left first and passed Jenny and Elizabeth, who were unknowingly walking towards their deaths. When Peter Cantu saw Jenny and Elizabeth, he thought it was a man and a woman and told the other gang members that he wanted to jump him and beat him up. He was frustrated that he had been the one who was unable to fight Raul.

The gang members ran and grabbed Elizabeth and pulled her down the incline, off of the tracks. Testimony showed that Jenny had gotten free and could have run away but returned to Elizabeth when she cried out for Jenny to help her.

For the next hour or so, these beautiful, innocent young girls were subjected to the most brutal gang rapes that most of the investigating officers had ever encountered. The confessions of the gang members that were used at trial indicated that there was never less than 2 men on each of the girls at any one time and that the girls were repeatedly raped orally, anally and vaginally for the entire hour. One of the gang members later said during the brag session that by the time he got to one of the girls, “she was loose and sloppy.” One of the boys boasted of having ‘virgin blood’ on him.
