By Joshua Rhett Miller. January 8, am Updated January 8, pm. A year-old and her year-old sister were arrested for stabbing and shooting their mother to death — a brutal payback after they were punished for trying to run her over with the family car, neighbors and officials in Mississippi said.
A year-old boy gunned down a mother and her pregnant teen daughter whose infant died after an emergency delivery, police say. The teenage shooter was already in custody for aggravated robbery when he was arrested for killing Janette Quiroz, 37, and her pregnant year-old daughter, Bernadette Quiroz in April, police announced Tuesday. Janette Quiroz was pronounced dead at the scene after the shooting at an apartment complex in San Antonio, Texas.
A prematurely born infant and her year-old mother spent seven days being almost entirely neglected in Border Patrol custody, according to lawyers who visited an immigrant processing station in McAllen, Texas, on Tuesday and Wednesday. The baby, barely a month old, was wrapped in a dirty towel, wore a soiled onesie and looked listless, said one of the lawyers, Hope Frye. The mother, according to Frye, said she had been taken to the hospital at least once to receive pain medication, but the baby had received no medical attention since being in Border Control custody.

The attorneys, who were shocked by their discovery, obtained access to the Border Patrol processing center known as Ursula as part of a decadeslong settlement over the care of children in government custody, sending them scrambling to obtain medical care and the release of the mother and the child. They said the child was lethargic, cold, and not eating. The mother and baby, who were not identified, were taken into Border Patrol custody after crossing into the US on June 4 and have been at Ursula since June 7, according to Hope Frye, an immigration attorney who visited the center this week under the rules of the consent decree known as the Flores Settlement.
Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, 19, was lured to the home where Clarisa Figueroa lived with her daughter, Desiree, by Facebook postings offering free baby clothes. When she arrived, the daughter showed her a photo album of her late brother to distract her as her mother started trying to strangle her with a cord, prosecutor Jim Murphy said. The plot may have originated in latewhen Clarisa Figueroa told her family she was pregnant and later posted on Facebook an ultrasound and photos of a room decorated for a baby.
Superior Court Judge Douglas J. Hatchimonji ruled that Ike Souzer, 15, was guilty of a felony count of voluntary manslaughter, rather than the murder charge that had been filed by prosecutors. Hatchimonji did not say why he found Souzer guilty of the lesser charge, a move that frustrated prosecutors.
Three weeks before year-old Marlen Ochoa was allegedly murdered at a South Side Chicago home, she met with the people who ultimately would be accused of killing her, prosecutors said Friday. Cook County Assistant States Attorney James Murphy on Friday laid out alleged details of Ochoa's murder, saying suspects Clarisa and Desiree Figueroa carefully planned out the crime and met with the victim weeks before luring her back and killing her. Ochoa had gone to the Figueroas' home on April 1, Murphy said.
I worry about my kids falling into a teenage depression because I lived it, endured it; I lived on while it strangled me daily. There was the daily morning stab the moment I opened my eyes, forcing me to remember again and again she was now gone, that she was dead. I lost all interest in my teen activities she was a part of with me.
While Reeves was accepting responsibility for her mother's Feb. Boswell was also unmoved by the fact that Reeves, now 17, was 15 when she stabbed her mother, Jamie Garnett, 60 times at their Gary home. Instead, Boswell — after both deputy prosecutor Maureen Koonce and defense attorney John Cantrell made their case that the plea agreement for one count of murder was fair — asked Reeves to tell her why she should accept it.
