Hot News: Maryland Mom Convicted of Killing Adopted Kids

· A Maryland woman, who adopted three children, was convicted Monday of murdering two of the girls and storing the bodies in a
freezer.



· Renee Bowman, 44, kept the bodies of the two young girls on ice for months while she continued to collect subsidies paid to
parents who adopt special-needs children, receiving a total of about $150,000 since adopting the girls.



· The bodies were found after the third daughter escaped by jumping out a window.



· The girl, now 9 and living with new foster parents, testified in the murder trial last week about the abuse she and her sisters
endured — being beaten with a baseball bat and shoes and choked until they lost consciousness.



· The girl's older sisters, Minnet and Jasmine Bowman, were both younger than 10 when they died, though authorities were never able to determine exactly when the murders occurred.


· Nobody knew they were missing, and there are no records the children were ever enrolled in school.


· Prosecutors said they would ask for life in prison without the possibility of parole when Bowman is sentenced March 22.

There were failures on so many levels. Social Services failed them, The Foster Mother failed them, The School System failed them, her own family never asked or tried to find out were the kids are ? The neighbors never asked were the kids are ? I hope this is a wake up call to everyone and I hope whoever was her Case Worker gets fired and up on charges ...

She does not deserve life in prison. She deserves the death penalty. Why waste tax payer dollars on this trash.

THIS LADY IS AN ANIMAL. WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO!!!!!!! HOW COME NO ONE CHECKED UP ON THESE KIDS OR DID A HOME VIST?!!!!! IF THESE CHILDREN WERE SPECIAL NEEDS HOW COME THERE WERE NOT GETTING CHECK-UPS OR VISTS TO THE DOC TO CHECK THERE STATUS. SPECIAL NEEED CHILDREN SHOULD BE FOLLOWED UP ON EXTREMLY CLOSE AND 130,000 FOR TAKING CARE OF THEM IS WAY TO MUCH MONEY!!!!!!!!!!! SHE SHOULD'VE BEEN MONITORD AND SHE LOOKS CRAZY. I WOULD LIKE HER TO GET DEATH ELECTRIC CHAIR OR FIRING SQUAD

Aren't there social workers who check to see if the children are adapting to their new parents. The agencies are dropping the bomb on checking on these children.No record of them being enrolled in school are you kidding me .Our black children can just disappear off the earth and no one looks for them.WOW

We don't seem to have accountability to each other any more. Do you mean to tell me the neighbors didn't see anything! Very hard to believe. Just like the girl who was beaten in Seattle, while people walked by...same thing is happening everywhere. "See no evil, hear no evil"

That is horrible. What people do for money and just for the sheer "because-i-want-to-and-can" attitude. Dayum shameful

This is very sad..I remember when I first heard about this. There are so many other cases like this in the Washington DC area.

I hate to say this, but when a person "seems" so willing to adopt or foster "special needs" children, there needs to be extra checking in to see if abuse occurs (the children can't always tell). This woman was getting a check and probably medicaid for these children, where in the hell was child welfare? Oh, I forgot, those programs get cut whenever the ecomony gets bad. One more thing, where in the hell was this woman's relatives!!!!!

Ok now this is ridiculous with a capital R. Those kids were needing a home to live in, not to be beaten and killed in. This lady make it hard for real people who want to adopt and foster kids.
