Horrible! Mother Accused Of Starving 4-Year-Old Daughter

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

This is so terrible…

4-year-old Marchella Pierce was so malnourished the day she died, she only had a single kernel of corn in her body.

Her 32-year-old mother Carlotta Brett Pierce and 57-year-old grandmother Loretta Brett are on trial for murder by starvation.

The poor girl had spent the first 3 1/2 years of her life in a hospital as she was born premature. Although Carlotta was given detailed instructions by her doctors on how to care for her daughter, who relied on feeding and breathing tubes, she instead ignored all instructions and fed her solid food such as chicken and hot dogs.

If Marchella was found trying to sneak food, Carlotta would tie her to the bed and give her high dosages of antihistamines, "keeping her asleep as she slowly starved to death," according to the prosecutor.

At the time of her death in September 2010, her body was found "beaten, bound, drugged, dehydrated, starved."

Carlotta's lawyer Alan Stutman admitted that she was "ignorant, stupid, and neglectful," but "she thought she was doing the right thing."

Meanwhile, Carlotta's mother is also being tried for manslaughter as she shared a room with Marchella and just stood by and watched as her granddaughter slowly died.

This is absolutely disgusting. No matter what her lawyer says, this woman should not be allowed to be given any kind of mercy whatsoever.

What she did to her daughter is deplorable and she should be punished severely.

It just makes us sick thinking about this.

RIP Marchella. Hopefully you are in a better place now.

Good.

Although Dr. Conrad Murray had filed a motion recently asking for bail so he could spend time with his family while he awaits the results of the appeal he's filed for his manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson, the judge ruled yesterday that it is not going to happen!

Paris Hilton's mother, Kathy Hilton, arriving at the courthouse to support Michael Jackson's family on the last day of testimony for the manslaughter trial against Dr. Conrad Murray.

Kathy has been a longtime friend of the family, and went to private school with the late pop icon when she was 13 and he was 14.

Our thoughts are with all of them on what is sure to be a very difficult day.

Janet Jackson Attends Dr. Conrad Murray Trial With Her Family

Janet Jackson

As planned, Janet Jackson arrived at the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray on Tuesday morning.

She cancelled Australian tour dates to support her family as the prosecution continues to argue that the doc should be convicted for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Instead of performing in the land down under this week, she opted to join her sister LaToya, brother Marlon, and mother Katherine at the trial.

We can only imagine how tough it is for the Jackson family during this time, so our thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of them!

Michael Jackson's Kids Boycotting Trial

Filed under: Legal MattersCeleb Kidz

The Jackson kids have made it clear - they will NOT be attending the Conrad Murray on trial.

Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson are boycotting the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial because the events are just too painful for them to relive.

As we earlier reported, Prince and Paris saw their father's body right after he died and Prince was considering being a witness in the trial.

MJ's mom, Katherine, is said to be very relieved that the children do not want to be involved and has since been extremely unhappy after prosecutor David Walgren released a picture of Michael's body during the opening statements of the trial.

Honestly, this is for the best. The children are too young and having to go through the pain all over again is just too much for them. We're sure there's enough evidence against Murray without needing the use of the kids.
