Unbelievable Story of Infant Murder

Joseph Mouton, 57

This story is absolutely insane.  Joseph Mouton, 57, has been charged with killing his 6-month-old son… THEN hiding his body in a refrigerator… AND he has not been charged with murder.

His defense was that he was under the influence when the child was killed.  Yet, he was previously arrested for battering the baby’s mother when she was pregnant and also pled guilty to attempted murder several years prior.  This case is just unbelievable.

PLEASE get the word out about Safe Havens.  It turns out that Mouton gained custody of the child because the mother could not afford to care for him.  There is always a better choice than leaving your children with someone who is likely to abuse them.  I have no more words.

Parking Garage Mom Competent to Stand Trial

Sonia Hermosillo

Sonia Hermosillo, 31, has been found competent to stand trial for the death of her son.

If you remember, a few months ago we reported on this here at One By One Safe Haven.  This was the mother who threw her baby boy from the fourth story of a hospital parking garage.  Many claimed that her actions clearly pointed to postpartum, while others thought that because she removed the infant’s medically necessary helmet and the act was premeditated she was sane.

Well whether or not she was legally insane will have to be decided by the jury, but from a psychological standpoint, the trial will proceed.

Baby Left to Die in Louisiana

Sabrina Maiden

A baby was found dead in a swampy area in Louisiana.  This story has just about every bad thing that could have led up to this murder: domestic dispute, drug abuse, firearms, and a poor environment.  I will let you read all of the details, but basically 22-year-old Sabrina Maiden has been charged with first-degree murder for laying her son in a field and leaving him to die.

I do not know how many times I have said this, but it is clearly not reaching some people.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ABANDON/HARM/MURDER YOUR BABY!  There are Safe Haven locations where you can drop them off 100% anonymously.  100% anonymously means you do not even have to give your name.  Nothing.

Anitra Hicks Charged with Murder of Infant

Anitra Hicks

Anitra Hicks, 18, has been charged with the murder of her infant son.

She is currently under house arrest while she awaits trial.  She is allowed to attend school and see her lawyer.  I would like to hear your thoughts on this.  Personally, I am a big fan of house arrest for people who are not flight risks.  It saves the state money and helps to not stigmatize the offender before he or she is proven guilty.

Anyway, it appears that Hicks gave birth in her bathroom and then threw the baby into the trash.  A trash collector was the one who found the boy and reported it to the police.  What is very strange to me is that she is described as a “slight” girl, but even her pastor said she never appeared to be pregnant.  I do not understand how this could be.  It is so sad that she did not think she could talk to anyone about it, did not think she had any other options, and was so close to graduating high school.

Another example, folks!  Teach your children about Safe Haven!

Baby Boy Found Dead Along Highway

I wish I had more information on this one for you.

A baby boy was found dead along a highway in Redding, California.  The 11-month-old, Sabastian, was supposedly last seen with the mother’s ex-boyfriend.  The ex, Christopher McDonald, 23, has been arrested on charges of kidnapping and murder, though the results of the autopsy are not in yet.  It is possible that the infant died of natural causes.

There appears to be no motive for the murder and the mother’s perspective on the incident seems suspicious.

Marchella Brett Pierce Starved to Death

Marchella Brett Pierce

I typically read so many articles about crimes against children that it takes a lot to really disturb me when I’m doing research for One By One.  I sort of expect to be sad and can prepare for what I will read.

This article really got to me though.  A little girl was starved to death.  I really cannot even write about this one, folks.  I do recommend you read the article.  If nothing else, at least getting her story out gives little Marchella a little bit of justice.

PLEASE seek help if you are having trouble caring for your children.  There IS assistance out there.

Another Abandoned in Mississippi

Another baby was abandoned behind a church in Mississippi.  Not only was the baby not brought inside the church, but churches are not even approved safe haven locations.

I could see how someone who is unfamiliar with Safe Haven might think they could turn to their church for help.  This is not hard to fathom.  The hard part to identify with is that this parent left the child in a cat bed behind the church where very few people may have happened past.  It is extremely good luck that a parishioner found the baby and called the police.  The baby is now safe and will be placed by an adoption agency soon.

Father Fractures Baby’s Skull

Baby Riley (father inset)

I have another sad one for you, readers.

An adorable little baby girl, Riley Ryon, was only 3-months-old when she died recently.  Cause?  A 2 ½ inch skull fracture caused by her father.  When Christopher Scott Ryon, 27, could not get her to stop crying, he punched her in the head.  She was found face down in her crib when her mother came home for lunch.

For today’s article, I want you to remind everyone you know that there are always other options besides killing a little baby AND I also strongly urge new parents to take parenting classes.  Being a new parent can be very overwhelming.  A lot of parents get very close to hurting their children.  Please do not let it get this far.  Ask for help.
