Half-ton Woman Indicted in Slaying of Nephew

This is a peculiar story I found on CNN. Check it out.

Prosecutors are trying to decide how to jail and bring to court a nearly half-ton, bedridden woman accused of killing her 2-year-old nephew.

A grand jury indicted Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, 27, on Thursday on one count of first-degree murder and on one count of injury to a child in the death of Eliseo Gonzalez Jr. She previously had been charged with capital murder.

Rosales weighs nearly 1,000 pounds and cannot fit through a door to leave her home, leaving prosecutors wondering how to bring her to court. As of Thursday evening, she was not in custody.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said that holding her at the county jail for her trial would be impossible because she needs extensive medical care.

“She would die,” Trevino said in Thursday’s online edition of The Monitor in McAllen.

The grand jury indicted Rosales after an autopsy confirmed investigators’ suspicions that the child died March 18 because he had been struck. Investigators believe that the toddler was struck at least twice, crushing his head.

Authorities recommended that Rosales’ bail be set at $150,000.

The boy’s mother, Jaime Rosales, was charged with injury to a child because she is accused of leaving her son alone with his aunt. Her bail has been set at $100,000. 

Smash down her house and get her out of there. Justice has to be served no matter how large or how small one is
