Twenty-one year old Christian Woods, of Belleview Florida originally told Escambia County, Florida deputies that her 18-month-old daughter was missing after she left the child, her twin sister, and a 2-year-old boy home alone while she went to Mobile, Alabama for the weekend. Escambia County, Florida authorities reported that Ms. Woods left the children with 6 containers of Jell-O and no water or electricity.
The 18-month-old girl was later found dead in a trash can, and her mother admitted to putting the girl there after she returned home to find the child dead. Ms. Woods has been charged with murder and two counts of child abuse. The other two children have been taken away by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
The article did not mention what drove Christina Woods to leave her children alone for the weekend with no food, water or electricity. It is almost inconceivable that a mother would subject her own children to such abuse and neglect. Children should be cherished and protected by their parents; when they are not the results can be quite tragic.
