Mother Starved Daughter To Death

The Brooklyn mother who was found guilty of severely neglecting, starving, and drugging her young daughter to death was sentenced to 32 years to life in prison.

Carlotta Brett-Pierce, or “Monster Mom,” will serve 32 years to life in prison. The mother had beat and starved her 4-year-old daughter, Marchella, to just 18.9 pounds when she died.

Carlotta still denies responsibility for murdering her daughter, saying in a New York Post report on June 7 “I do not accept responsibility for the actual death of my daughter, because in fact, I did not kill her.”

“I’m not perfect,” the 32-year-old said. She said she lacked the education and money to “care for such a sickly baby.”

She blamed jurors, the press and her lawyers instead, calling herself a “loving and caring mother.”

In a heartbreaking revelation, it was also reported that Marchella’s deeply traumatized brother Tymel, 7, had brought food to her funeral two years ago so she could be “fed” in heaven.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Patricia DiMango called the mother a “self-centered, volatile and belligerent woman.” The jury only needed 90 minutes to convict her of murder on her May 10 trial.

The judge also sentenced the grandmother Loretta Brett to five to 15 years in prison for manslaughter in the death.

Marchella died in September 2010 after she was denied food and strapped with jump ropes to her tiny SpongeBob bed. She had a single kernel of corn in her stomach.

Seriously Laurie? “A black animal.they are basically bad.” this woman has issues & should serve her time for this crime. but grouping all black people together is just plain racist.
