    OGDEN, Utah — I promise you that I am not looking for these dead\abused kid stories this morning, but I got one more. While in court before a judge answering to murder charges, 27-year-old Jewell Hendricks admitted she smothered her infant son. “Are you doing it because you are, in fact, guilty?â€￾ Second District Court Judge Michael DiRida asked Hendricks.*â€￾Yes, your honor,â€￾ Hendricks said, sobbing. Prosecutors say that Hendricks felt that the stress of being the new mother of premature twins could be substantially alleviated if she were short one kid. She liked 2-month-old Robert the least, so in January 2010, she covered his crying face with a sleeping bag and bear-hugged him until he stopped, then reportedly sat on his body for several hours. Robert would die from blunt force trauma to the head and smothering. Court documents stated Robert had a skull fracture, bruising on the head and arms, a broken collarbone and bleeding of the eye. As part of Hendricks’ plea deal, prosecutors dropped child abuse charges and will only recommend she serve 15 years in prison. She is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 9 where her attorney plans on having a*psychologist*testify that Hendricks has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. Which means her husband must have the mental capacity of an 8-year-old as he was outside of the courtroom telling reporters that Robert’s death was an accident. “I was there and I know how it happened,â€￾ Phil said. “It wasn’t her fault. It was nobody’s fault. Accidents do happen.â€￾ The Hendricks’s surviving son was given up for adoption and hopefully finds his way into the arms of a woman who doesn’t want to love him and squeeze him ’til he don’t move no more.

    Family, yes. The surviving twin, undoubtedly. But herself? She killed a kid based on 'which one she liked the least'? The actual fuck, they were your *children*.

    ... and for the record, I believe the report and the detective more than her lawyer.

    Lock it up, throw away the key.
