NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Two women pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of child endangerment a week after an 8-year-old was found dead in their apartment from severe malnutrition and an untreated broken leg and her injured and emaciated siblings were removed alive.
The children’s 30-year-old mother, Venette Ovilde, stared blankly and answered a judge’s questions in a barely audible whisper as she entered her plea through a court-appointed attorney. She remains held on $500,000 bail on aggravated manslaughter and child endangerment charges.
Her 23-year-old roommate, Myriam Janvier, also pleaded not guilty through a court-appointed attorney to child endangerment charges. Her bail was continued at $100,000.
Christiana Glenn died May 22 from severe malnutrition and a fractured femur that authorities said had never been treated. Her 7-year-old sister and 6-year-old brother remained hospitalized for treatment of malnutrition and other injuries after being removed from Ovilde’s Irvington apartment.
These two cockroaches were members of some crackpot religious cult – Because nothing says Crazy and Deadly like a church full of psychotic zealots. Manslaughter, my ass. This is murder of a child by means of starvation – a slow and horrible death.
They started dressing in head-to-toe white clothing and white headdresses, dressed the children all in white, removed all their furniture and belongings and piled them in a heap on the front sidewalk, and covered the floors and doorways of the apartment with white material, according to landlord William Weathers. He often heard loud chanting or prayers in Creole and French coming from the apartment, he said.
Well, golly, there was nothing crazy about these two, was there? I mean anybody can see that children would be perfectly safe with these two psychos in charge of their lives.
Personally, I think they should both now be dressed in orange jail uniforms right up until the moment somebody euthanizes both of them and removes them from the human gene pool. Till then, I suggest that they both suffer an untreated broken femur and that nobody feeds them — so they can get the full flavor of how “Not Guilty’ they really are.
The children, once friendly and rambunctious, stopped interacting with family and neighbors and were not attending school. Ovilde legally changed her name to Krisla Rezireksyon Kris and changed the children’s last names to Rezireksyon, after their leader, said Weathers and authorities. Rezireksyon was the name she used in court Wednesday.
The women frequently fasted and restricted the children’s food intake to the point that friends, such as Chanel Fields, the daughter of Christiana’s godmother, became alarmed at how thin they had become.
“The children weren’t allowed to swallow their own spit. They’d spit in napkins or tissues or on the ground,” Fields said. “They said it was because they were fasting.”
There’s more. This could have been avoided if we didn’t have a justice system riddled with judges with their heads up their asses. Ovilde’s mother, who was alarmed at the children’s condition, petitioned the court for custody of the now-dead child, but of course she was denied. Sometimes I think we need to start holding judges accountable for the people they help to kill. How many times do we have to read this kind of crap before we get the point that our system of justice no longer works for victims. If it isn’t freaks like Judge Moxley in Florida, who refused a desperate petition to restrain this psycho-stalker, thereby freeing him up to murder his victim, then it’s New Jersey crackpot judge deciding it’s okay to repeatedly rape your wife because your ‘religion’ says it’s okay, or it’s yet another judge refusing to remove a starving-to-death little girl from the clutches of her crazy-assed zealot mother who is slowly killing her. Why is it we so often refuse to remove these horribly suffering kids from obvious danger by any method other than a body bag–but if a parent smacks her tantrum-throwing little snot in the butt in the supermarket, the social services swat team descends upon her? How many things can you find wrong with this picture????
