Jennifer Kukla Gets Life

Jennifer Kukla Gets Life

Jennifer Kukla was a single mother living in a trailer with her two kids, 8-year-old Alexandria and 5-year-old Ashley. Jennifer had a hard time paying bills as a McDonald's employee and with one of the girl's father in prison and the other absent, caring for the girls was hard. Child Protective Services had taken her children before, for not having a clean residence, and she was afraid that they were going to take her two daughters away again. On top of all this, her car had broken down and she may have lost her job. On one cold morning in February, Jennifer finally snapped. Fueled by the stress, alcohol and a possible mental illness, Jennifer grabbed a large knife from the kitchen and began chasing her daughters around their trailer. She caught up with her oldest daughter, Alexandria, and slit her throat multiple times. She then cornered Ashley in the kitchen and slit her throat as well. She then killed the three family dogs and a pet mouse.

Jennifer then sat amongst the carnage for hours until her sister came to check on her. Last month a jury found Jennifer Kukla guilty of first-degree murder but mentally ill. Three psychiatrists called by the defense testified that Kukla was legally insane when the girls were killed. Officers testified that Kukla said she heard the voice of the devil telling her to kill the children and the animals. This Wednesday, a judge ruled that she spend the rest of her life in prison where she will recieve psychiatric treatment.

    She should have killed herself and the kids would have been better off. The mouse and dogs too…at least they all could have been adopted or fostered out.

    Having known people who worked with Jennifer Kukla, I wanted to make sure that while this is late. People don’t forget what happened to these little girls more than a year ago. How this woman, even in a society of desperation such as Michigan, took the lives of her children selfishly. It is our hope that she dies in prison, sooner rather than later. If only it weren’t so easy for her to escape remembering what she did to her babies.

    Wow, I do remember this I came to this site about the time Rowan Ford went missing.

    There is so little posted here, thanks so much for the update on this.

    This woman no doubt lost her mind – breaks my heart I can’t imagine a moment of this… that damn devil – geeeeeeeeze They should of fried her… someone in person will probably slice her throat a time or two.

    These baby girls are free of their pain – must of been horrible to live with this woman, maybe the children’s souls are with much better parents *wink I feel sorrow for the other family members of these girls.

    According to ‘Limb from Limb’ by George Hunter and Melissa Preddy, Jennifer Kukla, in a bloody frenzy’ disembowled the family dog and it’s two puppies -to prevent them from eating her dead children.

    Me and these two daughters were very close. My father would bring us to their house or they would be at our house pretty much every day of the summer, and we would barbeque, and we brought our Husky, Asia. They would always cry when we left, and when I heard about this, I was heart-broken. It was hard for me to read this, and I hope these two girls had a proper cremation.

    I used to work with Jennifer, she was my manager at a McDonald’s in Macomb county Michigan. What I can say is that she seemed like a decent person who was overcome by problems with alcohol, problems with men, and problems with money.

    I remember she had a Lebaron convertible who’s top was stuck in the down position, not cool in Michigan weather. She showed up to work several times drunk, once while I was there. She didn’t really seem to have anyone to help her, and looking back on it I can see maybe I could have done more to help, could have done something. It was obvious she was on a downwards spiral, and nobody around her gave a shit, including me.

    She was a nice girl, she had a sense of humor about her. She needed help, desperately. She fell through the cracks though, and in doing so I couldn’t help but feel partially responsible, because I saw what I saw and kept to myself.

    I remember I felt quite bad the day I heard the news, learning that she had snapped. I still feel bad about it. It could have been prevented, if there had been help applied.

  • Samantha Kukla

    she is my cousin. my last name is also Kukla. she tried to write me & my parents letters from prison (assuming she just wanted someone to talk to & that she was lonely). She wrote us something about how crazy she was & how she tried to chew off her own toe in there. i probably still have the letter somewhere around here. we never responded, because to be honest i had no idea how to. i mean, what was i honestly suppose to say to her? never really knew her. i live in the upper peninsula of Michigan, while she & my other family lives down state. .
