Tim Holland testified that he did it all for love. He said in earlier testimony that he stood by while his wife, Lisa, abused and murdered their adopted child and then disposed of his body so she wouldn't get caught.
Thats how I felt when I first read this..... Its inhumanly sick.... These people need to be torchered to the n'th degree and die a slow painfull inhumane death...zxrider said:Jesus Christ, that story actually made me physically ill.
Oh yeah, that poor guy. :finger:"I don't sleep anymore," Holland said during the 11-minute recording. "I just don't want anyone else to have to go through what my wife and I are going through right now."
I can't tell who is more of a piece of sh!t....her for abusing the kid and causing his death or him for not doing anything about it.Holland claimed Wednesday that Lisa wouldn't let him take Ricky to the doctor.
He had the chance, Holland admitted Thursday. His wife left the children in his care for hours on June 29, 2005, while she went to the store. Still, he didn't phone a doctor or the police.
"I didn't want to go to jail," Holland said.
"I knew if I took my son to the hospital, I'd lose my family, I'd lose everything."
If I was the guy, I woulda cut her friggin head off for murdering that boy, adopted or not.ChoCha said:Thats how I felt when I first read this..... Its inhumanly sick.... These people need to be torchered to the n'th degree and die a slow painfull inhumane death...

"I noticed a very deep rope burn on his wrist with scabs ... Ricky told me it was from the dog rope. I asked him 'Did he take his dog for a walk?' He said, 'No, it's the rope they tie me in bed with at night,'" testified Honeck, a social worker for Catholic Charities of Jackson who was hired to give play therapy to Ricky by the state Department of Human Services, then the Family Independence Agency.
"He added that the handcuffs were very cold on his legs as well."
Her testimony adds to the list of school employees and neighbors who alleged during a preliminary hearing that they notified the state Ricky was abused before his died.
"The next week, I saw Ricky and checked his wrists and ankles and found they were healing," she said. "I asked him if he was still being tied up. He said, 'No. We made a deal. I won't pee on the floor and she won't tie me up.'"
On April 18, Ricky didn't show up for his therapy appointment, Honeck testified.
"I called the foster care worker and she notified me his counseling was terminated," she said.
Hardly seems like an appropriate form of punishment to me. I would be much happier to see them lather her up in BBQ sauce and throw her into a ring of hogs that they've been starving for a month or so. Or better yet, inject her with the Ebola virus in enough quantity to kill her in exactly one weeks time. Maybe then her last thoughts could be somewhat comparable to poor little Ricky's. It's really a shame our system lets people like this live, only to become the burden of john q taxpayer.636Jen said:At least that bitch will be in jail the rest of her life:
Felony murder carries a mandatory life sentence without parole.
