Couple plead guilty to starving their 3-yo, 11 lb. disabled daughter – found with flea bites, visible bones,
PA- A couple has pleaded guilty to starving their three-year-old disabled daughter to death. Carlos Rivera and Carmen Ramirez admitted on Thursday to killing little Nathalyz, who had Down’s Syndrome, in September 2013 and endangering her four other siblings aged three to nine, including her twin brother, in their Philadelphia home. Weighing just 11lbs at the end of her life – with bedsores, visible bones, and very little hair on her head – Nathalyz was described by the judge as ‘an Auschwitz child’. Rivera, 30, and Ramirez, 27, will be sentenced on September 4 and face life in prison. Their children are in foster care. READ MORE HERE
