Three children found dead in a southwest Huntsville apartment with no electricity were intentionally starved to death by their mother, police say.
Huntsville police spokesman Wendell Johnson said Saturday that Natashay Y. Ward, 33, confessed to detectives Friday night and was charged with capital murder. If convicted, she could be sentenced to death by lethal injection or life in prison without parole.
Tonight on the news, it was reported that the state charged Ward with 3 counts of capital murder. Good, the sooner she's dead, the better for everyone. The kind of evil bitch that can starve her own children to death has no remorse, and will not be haunted by their faces in her sleep at night. The quicker she's put to death, the better for all. For monsters of this magnitude, their lives are forfeit.
I really feel for the officers at the jail who are having to make sure the other inmates don't kill this bitch before she goes to trial. I'm sure there's more than one inmate ready to dispense some prison justice, and spare the time and expense of a trial.
Of course, locking her away, and throwing away the key would be a more than fitting end. Make sure she has plenty of water. A person will die of dehydration after only 4 days, and we can't have that, after all. Make sure she's well hydrated, and starves to death herself. This is one case were I think it is fully appropriate for the offender to be subjected to the exact same crime she committed.
