    Ohio Mom Charged in Death of 28-Pound Teen Daughter

    CINCINNATI A mother and a nurse were charged Thursday in the death of the woman's 14-year-old daughter, who had cerebral palsy and weighed only 28 pounds, a prosecutor said. A Montgomery County grand jury in Dayton indicted the mother and the nurse on involuntary manslaughter charges. Two other nurses were indicted on lesser charges of failing to report child abuse or neglect. All were being held in the county jail, prosecutors said.

    "This is a tragic and sad case wherein four adults were responsible for the care of this 14-year-old special-needs girl, and they all utterly ignored and failed to do so," county prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. said in a statement. "The conduct of these four defendants transcends all bounds of human decency.

    "She was the worst malnourished child this office has ever seen," Ken Betz, director of the coroner's office, said Thursday. Authorities have said that the teen died minutes after paramedics rushed her to a hospital. She had numerous bed sores and showed other signs of neglect, and the prosecutor described the home as vile and filthy.

    The girl's mother, Angela Norman, also was indicted on a felony count and a misdemeanor count of endangering children. Mollie E. Parsons, 41, of Dayton, was indicted on charges of involuntary manslaughter, failing to provide for a functionally impaired person and tampering with records. Kathryn Williams, 42, of Englewood, and Mary K. Kilby, 63, of Miamisburg, were each charged with failing to provide for a functionally impaired person and failing to report child abuse or neglect.

    The teen was confined to her home and was supposed to be cared for by her mother and Parsons, a licensed practical nurse whose job was to administer care for the girl six days a week, according to the prosecutor. Williams and Kilby are registered nurses. Williams was paid to supervise Parsons and visit and inspect the living conditions and do a physical assessment of the girl every 30 to 60 days. Kilby was scheduled to visit every six months to also check on conditions of the home and assess the girl's health, needs and care, the statement said.

    Children's services had a referral on the family in September 2009, but it was unable to substantiate any allegations.

    I bet there's no debate in this thread except about exactly how awful these people are and exactly how harsh their punishment should be.
    I may be wrong.

    Personally, I think "involuntary manslaughter" is too light. The nurse, if not the mother, knew exactly what was happening to this girl and the likely result of such continued care (or lack there of). That kind of knowledge would, to me, make such deterioration and eventual death entirely intentional.

    That made me sick to my stomach. 28 lbs - my 5 year old weighs more than that. I'm nauseated. Wow. And people claim our government sticks its nose in our business too damn much but yet tragedies like this still happen.

    The only possible debate could be a discussion about how 3 employees of the state of Ohio, specifically charged with protecting the welfare of this child, could have failed so negligently. It probably cost taxpayers $100,000 a year (WAG) to starve this poor girl to death.

    Proves to me that Ohio's entire child welfare system is broken. Three employees of the state.

    I accept your challenge.

    How did the free market fail to prevent this from happening?

    This is very tragic.

    There's no such thing as hell, so no. But we do have prisons.

    If DUI can result in actual murder charges, then so can this (though I think we misuse our murder definitions greatly these days). If they purposefully starved that child, then they should have been charged with a higher crime as it is no longer involuntary. But it's all up to what the State can prove.
