Oooh no. This is horribly, horribly sad.
Makayla Norman died at the young age of fourteen back in March. She suffered from cerebral palsy and malnutrition. At the time of death, she only weighed 28 pounds…
Her mother and three nurses are now charged with the blame. The prosecutor said the home reeked of filth and that the victim had bed sores and other signs of neglect.
County prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr states:
This is a tragic and sad case wherein four adults were responsible for the care of this 14-year-old special-needs girl, and they all utterly ignored and failed to do so. The conduct of these four defendants transcends all bounds of human decency. She would undoubtedly still be alive if just one of these defendants had acted responsibly.
We hope justice is served for little Makayla, but nothing will unfortunately bring her back. It's really sad.
