All Crime Is Personal

Stepmother accused of killing baby from Batavia:

Elmira mother accused of poisoning 21-month-old stepson pleads not guilty:

I can’t remember the last time I posted a step-mother story before. Should we go with the classic Wicked Stepmother or the more modern Step-Monster.

Either way 24-year-old Melissa S. Englehardt of Elmira, New York fits the bill for both.

She has been arrested and charged in the November 2009 poisoning death of her 21-month-old stepson Andrew Cianfrini of Batavia, NY. Englehart allegedly put methanol in Andrew’s juice. Methanol is an ingredient of antifreeze.

Police say that prior to Andrew’s visit with his father and his slampig of a wife that she searched on the net for ways to poison someone and that methanol was allegedly found in Andrew’s sippy cup.

She’s also pleaded not guilty on top of everything else.

I guess those web searches and the methanol are just coincidence.

I’ve watched a lot of true crime shows in my time and it seems that anti-freeze is the weapon of choice for women who want to get rid of a family member. My point is that she’s a stupid idiot because police and forensic experts know what to look for and you’re not the first person to think of this. The dumbest and most evil maybe but not the first.

Thanks to Tammy for the tip.

    Monster is right. I’m watching my 19 month old son now and trying to imagine what an innocent BABY could do to make someone want to snuff their life out like that. Choked up just thinking about it. I’m embarassed to be human sometimes…………… Saw a pic of him and he was little angel.

      It’s the same reason why bad boyfriends bash their penis-sleeves offspring to death. The kids aren’t theirs, and they feel the need to eliminate any other DNA so they can spread their own.

    I hate this effing whorebag. I just gave my daughter a sippy cup full of juice. She was sooooooo excited to drink out of Dora cup, I can’t imagine putting anything it to hurt her. These are the people that are supposed to protect you, not hurt you! WTF? I’d like 5 minutes alone with her. I can assure you poisoning will be the least of her worries!

    This bitch is PREGNANT! WTF! When I was pregnant I felt so loving towards every kid and baby that came across my path. In my job I had to deal with kids a lot and I just loved being around them because my mama hormones were kickin in big time.

    Its not like this little boy lived with her fulltime and she resented him because of it (not that thats an excuse). He was there for TWO days and then back to his mom. What is her freakin problem?

    After she gives birth feed her nothing but different poisons till she dies. And I mean poisons that fucking HURT as they kill you.
