Baby Dies in Texas After Mother Reports Cutting off Arms
TBO ^ | Nov 22, 2004

Posted on 11/22/2004 2:03:51 PM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection

An infant died Monday after her mother called 911 to report that she had cut off the baby's arms, police said.

When authorities arrived, they found the baby with her arms severed and the mother waiting calmly with blood on her clothing, police said. The baby died at a hospital.

The 35-year-old mother, whose name was not released, was being questioned by police.

Authorities said other family members, including two school-age children, lived together in the Plano apartment.

Just a late, late term abortion. If she had an abortionist do this same thing no charges would have been filed. And don't anyone try to tell me that there's any difference.

Given the so called "quality" of the water in Plano, it could very well be.

More likely something that was taken with the water, smoked, snorted or injected.

Insanity. The woman is clearly insane. No death penalty, she will torture herself more than any court-ordered punishment when she snaps out of it.

If she ever does.

Yes, she's probably insane. In any case, you need the details of the case before deciding on a penalty.

The more bizarre the crime, the more likely the perp will escape severe punishment, I'm afraid. She'll live while her baby died.

The Democrats will call it "late-term abortion" and cheer it. They'll also insist that we pro-Lifers are being "mean-spirited" in prosecuting this monster.

The 35-year-old mother, whose name was not released

Venus DeMilo?

I'm sorry, but no way in hell should she or anyone else be allowed to use the mental illness excuse to get away with murder. If she's so insane that she doesn't know that cutting her child's arms off is wrong, she is a threat to society. For those who call it cruel to execute the insane(if they are insane and incapable of deciphering right or wrong, how then can they comprehend their impending death?), fine, institute her, with the stipulation that if she is every ruled to have recovered mental competency, she goes on death row, and no chance of ever being released back onto the streets.

Give a few days one way or the other, this is a typical late-term abortion. Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry like late-term abortions. Given the chance they'd let this woman live in their homes.

It's likely caused by drug abuse, but it could be post-partum psychosis. My wife had it and it's unbelievable. I was often terrified of coming home to a murder-suicide situation. It's better now, but post-partum depression and the rarer post-partum psychosis are real isssues.

Plano baby dies after arms cut off

04:01 PM CST on Monday, November 22, 2004

By JENNIFER EMILY and TERRI LANGFORD / The Dallas Morning News

An 11-month-old baby died Monday after her arms were cut off, and her mother has been charged with capital murder, Plano police said.

Dena Schlosser, 35, called 911 on Monday morning to report that she had cut off her infant’s arms. When authorities arrived, they found the child with her arms severed. Police said the woman was waiting calmly, with blood on her clothing, when they arrived.

The baby was taken to nearby Plano Medical Center about noon, where she died, Plano police spokesman Carl Duke said.

Authorities said other family members, including two school-age children, live in the unit at the Fairway Apartments, just north of Plano Medical Center on Coit Road. None were in the apartment at the time.

Texas Child Protective Services had investigated the mother shortly after the girl's birth in January.

A CPS investigator was called to the woman’s home on Jan. 15 after she was seen running down the street from her apartment, her older 5-year-old girl bicycling after her.

When police and CPS arrived, the older child told them her mother had left her 6-day-old baby sister in the family’s apartment, alone.

The mother, who was despondent, appeared to be suffering from postpartum depression, said Marissa Gonzales, CPS spokeswoman.

“Mom started walking and running from the apartment,” Ms. Gonzales said. “Someone called law enforcement and she was obviously having some sort of psychotic episode.”

The woman was taken to a Collin County medical center where she was hospitalized for a few days. Her other two children - both girls - were released to their father, who told authorities she had been acting strangely since the birth of the third child on Jan. 9.

Once the woman was released from the hospital in January, she agreed to seek counseling and see a psychiatrist, Ms. Gonzales said.

The woman kept all of her appointments and at one time, was prescribed with a psychotropic drug to treat the depression. CPS caseworkers continued to visit the family through the spring and summer.

“She was doing well,” Ms. Gonzales said.

The case was closed Aug. 9.

Here's some details. This baby had one arm cut off. Then, this baby had another arm cut off. How quickly? How slowly? Was the baby conscious to feel the cutting of the second arm, or had she bled to death by then?

Was Mom doing this in self defense? NO!

Maximum penalty should be served.
