The Baby Vodka Murder
On June 8, 2011, a four month old baby was murdered by its most trusted person, the father, in Stone Mountain, Georgia. How? The father added vodka to the baby bottle and fed it to his girl. Keith Furlow, 20, is now charged with murder, a full year after the incident.
The grand jury finally decided to indict him and based on the evidence, the D.A. indicates it should be a slam dunk case because a four month old baby must be fed. They are unable to feed themselves and have zero strength in getting vodka out of a bottle from a cabinet. The case is so deliberate and sick. Yet, Ken is pleading not guilty. The best his Public Defender has to offer is, "accidents happen". Huh, what law school did he attend?
How in the world can this be anything but intentional and premeditated? One cannot accidentally add vodka to a baby bottle, what, is he planning to say he thought it was water? How could this be, what about the vodka bottle nearby? I suppose he is going to state the baby got into it and fed herself. Exactly what jury would ever believe such a foolish statement?
Like Sandusky, some cases do not deserve the "innocent until proven guilty" American jurisprudence. Some cases are simply guilty as charged. Skip the trial and go straight to conviction and save money.
