Half-Ton Woman Indicted in 2-Year-Old's Death 'Too Fat for Jail'

Lawyers in the U.S. are wondering how to deal with a weighty problem.

A woman is accused of killing her two-year-old nephew but prosecutors in Texas do not yet know how to get her to jail and court — because she weighs nearly half a ton.

Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, from La Jola, Texas, is bedridden and weighs nearly 1,000 lbs.

But she cannot get through her front door to be taken to jail and, later, court.

A grand jury has already agreed she should face charges of murder and injury in connection with the death of Eliseo Gonzalez Jr.

He died while in her care in March and the 27-year-old is accused of killing her nephew with two blows to the head.

She explained away the injuries by saying she had slipped, landing with her right hand on Eliseo's head while trying to pick him off the floor, and that he fell off a chair.

Sometimes, a news story is so bizarre that it must be posted.

In this case the term babysitter seems rather horrific.

She's lying because at 1000 pounds she's not going to be getting up which would make it impossible for her to "slip". She was bedridden.

And who in their right mind leaves a 2 year old in the care of someone who can't run all day?

I didn't find any, lord knows we can't have two of these threads on ATS servers, the weight alone could cause serious damage.

Irevolution where is there another thread? I've noticed you attempting to derail many threads including one I started.

If there is another I didn't see one IDK.

About the story...

I agree I think shes lying, she's bed ridden.

I think the court should order her have a gastrol bypass surgery until she looses enough weight to go to prison.

For some reason a search did not show that thread, thank you for finding it.

Okay mods, do as you wish with this one.

Be careful whilst moving this thread, lift with your legs not just your backs.
