Gravely ill woman kills son, is freed, kills husband
Reuters ^ | 10-10-2006

Posted on 10/10/2006 1:33:01 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

SOFIA (Reuters) - A Bulgarian woman who killed her son was released from prison because of terminal cancer. She then went home and killed her husband, police said Tuesday.

The 57-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in jail for killing her 29-year-old son with a garden hoe in April 2005 while he was sleeping.

Last month, authorities judged her to be in the final stages of cancer and let her go home, where she stabbed her husband in the throat with a knife.

"It was established she was in the last stage of cancer, she had it all over her body," said a spokeswoman for the Bourgas regional police.

"They presumed she was feeling bad and she would treat herself and rest. But nothing of the kind. She got aggressive and ... she killed her husband."

The woman, from a village in eastern Bulgaria, has been taken into custody again and is awaiting a new trial.

"She threatened that, if she is released again, she will kill her second son as well," the police spokeswoman said.

"The whole case is like something from the twilight zone."

Hmmm, maybe the judge that released her should take her in.

That’s probably just an idle threat. Let her go again.

I can't find the original posting, but another FReeper recently suggested that for the worst offenses a 15 Sievert dose of radiation be used on offenders... I saw this and thought hmmm.... time for somebody's radiation therapy.

from wikipedia:10–50 Sv (1,000–5,000 REM) Acute radiation poisoning, 100% fatality after 7 days (LD 100/7). An exposure this high leads to spontaneous symptoms after 5 to 30 minutes. After powerful fatigue and immediate nausea caused by direct activation of chemical receptors in the brain by the irradiation, there is a period of several days of comparative well-being, called the latent (or "walking ghost") phase. After that, cell death in the gastric and intestinal tissue, causing massive diarrhea, intestinal bleeding and loss of water, leads to water-electrolyte imbalance. Death sets in with delirium and coma due to breakdown of circulation. Death is currently inevitable; the only treatment that can be offered is pain therapy

oh, and withhold the pain therapy

No, it's like something from a place where they mollycoddle killers and don't have the death penalty.

Only 15 yrs for murder?

Lets show some compassion for the widow. How tragic she has lost her 1st born son, now a husband and received threats against her 2nd born son from a convicted murderer. Lets all say a prayer for this woman and her family.

"The whole case is like something from the twilight zone."

you're telling me....

Only a Liberal idiot would think that dying of cancer turned violent killers into law abiding citizens.....

and if they RELLY believed that...I think of a few folks that could use a "cancer" treatment....

in fact- I think of a few million radical terrorists that might need this "cure"

Good observation.

I wonder if this sentence should be reworded:

The 57-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in jail for killing her 29-year-old son with a garden hoe in April 2005 while he was sleeping.
to

No. I guess the first way was better.

Man, she must have really been mad.


The Lockheed Hoe
a hit-to-kill missile interceptor, was the Army's HOE (Homing Overlay Experiment). The HOE vehicle consisted of the first two stages (Thiokol M55E1 + Aerojet General M56A1) of a LGM-30A/B Minuteman I ICBM, which boosted a large KKV (Kinetic Kill Vehicle) to high altitude. The KKV was equipped with an infrared seeker, guidance electronics and a propulsion system. Once in space, the KKV could extend a folded structure similar to an umbrella skeleton of 4 m (13 ft) diameter to enhance its effective cross section. This device, which also had weights attached to the ribs, would destroy the ICBM reentry vehicle on collision.

Poor guy.

Who only gets 15 years for pummeling their son to death with a gardening hoe in the first place? Then they LET HER GO because she was terminally ill with caner? Richard Biegenwald DIED in prison of cancer, we didn't let that psycho out!

Well at least she warned them she will go after her other son if they let her out again. Of course, I'd be questioning who was crazier if the did let her out again!

Bleediing heart Liberals the same, no matter what part of the world they inhabit.

Or should I say, no matter 'what part of the flat earth they live on. . .

Yeah, I wondered that too. But really we should be asking what did her sons and her husband do to MAKE her so upset? What kind of childhood tragedy did this woman go through to make her kill her child and her husband? We should be more sympathetic.
