Back in 2012, the daughter of Kristopher Speigner and Joy Lynn Speigner died after ingesting a dish washing detergent tablet. They did not call for help until the following morning because, according to police, they were “too high and too drunk” to do anything to save her.
Almost a year later, they were both arrested and charged with negligent homicide and ordered held on $6000 bond. They made bail, but failed to appear for their bench trial in September and a judge issued a warrant for their arrest.
“Last time we had a court date, we continued it, but they were still required to be here and they didn’t show up at that time,” explained ADA Jason Scully-Clemmons. “I felt it had to do with the fact they knew it was gonna be continued, and so that was not much of a big deal.…
According to reports, the 28-year-old mother became enraged after learning that her 9-year-old daughter had been called a curse word by an 11-year-old boy at Eccleston Elementary.
Instead of going to the school, or talking to the boy’s parents, Rivera went to the school and waited for the boy to exit. When the boy got on his bike, Rivera walked up to him and lost her fucking mind. After throwing the boy off his bike, she physically assaulted him.
“She slammed me into the wall and then she came behind me and started choking me and hitting me on the head,” the boy said. All of this was captured on school surveillance video.
If that weren’t enough, she also threw the boy’s bike in her van and forced him to get inside. “She told me ‘tell me the instructions to your house or I’ll kill you,'” he said.…
McCabe is the mother of three children with a criminal history that includes attempted endangerment of a child or elderly adult, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a couple of probation violations.
Over the last few years, the courts have ordered her to undergo drug and parenting classes, as well as mental health evaluations. I do not know the results of that last one, but with the latest allegations, it’s apparent the first two didn’t stick.
Her recent legal woes started in March, after a a relative found nude images of McCabe’s 5-year-old daughter on the child’s Nintendo DSI. The relative reported their findings and the child was interviewed by the Division of Child and Family Services a few days later.
The girl would tell a caseworker that her mother had taken “loads” of pictures of her “without any clothes on.” She would also tell a caseworker that her mother “would then show the pictures to men,” and “printed the pictures and sold them to people for $100.”
The Nintendo DSI was handed over to police who would later find 19 pornographic images of the girl.…

Bell was arrested back in 2013 after her then boyfriend contacted police to report he’d found some videos on Bell’s computer that showed her making her young son perform sex acts on her.
One video was recorded on a cellphone in the shower, while the other was recorded through a laptop camera and featured Bell on a bed watching a pornographic movie. Both videos were recorded in 2012 while Bell was living with her half-brother, Justin Surber.
Bell’s boyfriend also found hundreds of emails between Bell and Surber that made it apparent that Bell and her half-brother had been in a sexual relationship and even discussed Bell sexually abusing her young son.

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, VA – A teen mom in Virginia is facing child abuse charges after a picture of her 14-month-old son hanging from a hook was posted on Facebook.
The picture shows the son of 18-year-old Alexis Breeden suspended in the air from a door frame, hanging by his t-shirt that had been attached to a plant hook. The shirt is tight around his neck and the boy is obviously not to happy about the situation.
Some people were so disturbed by the picture that they shared it on the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page hoping that they would investigate. They did, and ended up identifying Breeden, who turned herself in after a felony warrant was issued for her arrest. She’s currently facing a felony child abuse charge.
Breeden recently pleaded guilty to an assault and battery charge against a family member and was ordered by a judge to complete anger management courses and undergo a mental health evaluation.
As you can imagine, a lot of people have chimed in to criticize Breeden, and she later posted a response to those people that read:

The 3-month-old died last month after spending two days in the hospital. The medical examiner found the baby had suffered a skull fracture, blunt force trauma to the body, and had biting injuries to his chest, hands, fingers, feet and toes.
Jenkins, 38, initially told police that he accidentally dropped his son on his head while giving him a bath, and that the bite marks found on his son came from the neighbor’s dog biting the boy while he was in a car seat wearing a monkey suit.
But the boy’s mother told police a different story. She said that her husband was initially scared to call 911 after their son was injured, mainly because he had repeatedly bit the boy because he was crying. She said the bites were so severe that blood from the wounds had soaked through the baby’s clothes.
She said Jenkins only called 911 after coming up with the genius “baby in a monkey suit being bitten by neighbor’s dog” story.…
SAINT CHARLES, MO — Police have accused 18-year-old Desiree Cozzoni of giving her child away to a known heroin user so she could live the life of “a normal teenager,” then later called police to falsely claim her child had been kidnapped.
According to reports, Cozzoni and her 16-month-old son moved from place to place, sometimes staying with a heroin user who already lost custody of her two children and lived in motels because she was homeless.
Despite buying heroin daily and using the drug in front of Cozzoni and her her son, Cozzoni signed over custody of her son to the woman on nonlegal documents that I can only imagined looked something like this.
Then, according to court documents, Cozzoni changed her phone number to prevent the woman from being able to contact her. But for some reason, Cozzoni recently had a change of heart. For reasons unknown, she called police to report that her son had been kidnapped by the woman.
After police investigated her claims and found out the whole story, Cozzoni admitted she’d given her son to the woman so that she could go on living the life of “a normal teenager.”
Police charged Cozzoni with two misdemeanor charges of making a false report and endangering the welfare of a child.…
CONWAY, PA – Brittany Ruck, 25, is facing some serious charges after she allegedly pulled her 6-year-old daughter’s hair so hard that she separated the girl’s scalp from her skull.
Police were first alerted to the incident back in August after hospital officials contacted them to report they were treating a young girl for a head injury consistent with violent hair pulling.
“The head injury was described in medical terms as traction,” said Michael Priolo, of the Conway Police Department. “It is a separation between the scalp and skull which creates a void that fills with blood. The blood ended up pulling around the eyes, giving her raccoon eyes.”
When interviewed, the girl said that when she had difficulty counting to 12, her mother “pulled her out of a chair by her hair.” She said that the next day her mother pulled her into a corner by her hair.
Ruck admitted to police that she’d pulled her daughter’s hair on multiple occasions because that’s what her mother used to do to her when she was a young girl.…
HARDWICK, VT – Second degree murder charges have been filed against a disabled teen’s mother and her boyfriend after police say they killed the boy by intentionally putting alcohol in his IV.
On Aug. 22, police responded to the home of Melissa Robitille and Walter Richter after first responders found 13-year-old Isaac Robitille dead inside.
Isaac had multiple medical issues that required caretakers, feeding tubes and IVs just to keep him alive. Robitille wrote on her blog that Isaac had a nervous system disorder and Holoprosencephaly – an anomaly in which the brain doesn’t fully divide into two hemispheres.
According to a comment made by Richter’s on his Facebook page just the other day, Isaac was well cared for and it was just his time to go.
Police disagreed with that assessment, especially after the teen’s autopsy revealed he had a BAC of 0.146, almost twice the legal limit to drive. The medical examiner’s office has ruled the boy’s death a homicide, citing alcohol as the contributing cause.
So how did the alcohol get in the boy?…
