It's not unusual for someone to have issues with their parents, but the 15 cases profiled in this book show that sometimes they can't be resolved with a conversation. In some cases, frequent physical and mental abuse led to murder, while other cases were just mentally deranged people taking out their frustrations on the closest person available. These short profiles show what happens when sons and daughters snap and end the lives of those who brought them into this world.

A special kind of horror is reserved for mothers who kill their children. Cases such as those of Susan Smith, who drowned her two young sons by driving her car into a lake, and Melissa Drexler, who disposed of her newborn baby in a restroom at her prom, become media sensations. Unfortunately, in addition to these high-profile cases, hundreds of mothers kill their children in the United States each year. The question most often asked is, why? What would drive a mother to kill her own child? Those who work with such cases, whether in clinical psychology, social services, law enforcement or academia, often lack basic understandings about the types of circumstances and patterns which might lead to these tragic deaths, and the social constructions of motherhood which may affect women's actions. These mothers oftentimes defy the myths and media exploitation of them as evil, insane, or lacking moral principles, and they are not a homogenous group. In obvious ways, intervention strategies should differ for a teenager who denies her pregnancy and then kills her newborn and a mother who kills her two toddlers out of mental illness or to further a relationship. A typology is needed to help us to understand the different cases that commonly occur and the patterns they follow in order to make possible more effective prevention plans. Mothers Who Kill Their Children draws on extensive research to identify clear patterns among the cases of women who kill their children, shedding light on why some women commit these acts. The characteristics the authors establish will be helpful in creating more meaningful policies, more targeted intervention strategies, and more knowledgeable evaluations of these cases when they arise.

This text concerns women who were accused of murdering their new-born children in the 18th century. It explores why certain women were suspected of murdering their children at birth and how they were subsequently treated by their neighbours, families, friends and the courts. The book draws heavily on a variety of archival material from the Northern Circuit courts and on a wide range of contemporary printed sources. Individual chapters focus on the key issues: the medical testimony in local investigations and in court; conflicting public representations of suspects; decision-making in the courts; debates about capital punishment and the administration of justice; and the changes in the law at the turn of the 19th century.

Mommy No. 13 explores the development of Sam's childhood in the Last Frontier, and of his decision to leave it all behind.
Author: Melinda Miles-Lindberg
A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR. A MURDER. A CHILD. RAD. A GHOSTING. A psychopath murdered his young wife to avoid the mess of a divorce. To make a clean break. He left a child in the wake, broken, and in danger of violence at the hands of those who believed the lies of the boy's narcissistic father. Miles away in Alaska, a young lawyer adopted her second child with her new husband. Their son Sam was the three-year-old child of that murderer of Mexican-American descent, and an unsuspecting Japanese mistress. He desperately needed a new family far away from the lurid scandal that was rocking the State of New Mexico. Over the next fifteen years, Sam's thirteenth mother slowly, frighteningly, came to realize the damage Sam's first three years caused him. At eighteen years of age, he walked out. He walked away from his younger brother who adored him, from his sister who antagonized him, from his mother who desperately loved him. Mommy No. 13 explores the development of Sam's childhood in the Last Frontier, and of his decision to leave it all behind.
Case Featured On 20/20 Anti-Freeze For A Husband It looked like a suicide.
Author: Michael Benson
Publisher: Pinnacle Books
Case Featured On 20/20 Anti-Freeze For A Husband It looked like a suicide. A man's corpse on the bathroom floor--next to a half-empty glass of anti-freeze. But fingerprints on the glass belonged to the deceased's wife, Stacey Castor. And a turkey baster in the garbage had police wondering if she force-fed the toxic fluid down her husband's throat. Pills For A Daughter In desperation, Stacey concocted a devious plan. She mixed a deadly cocktail of vodka and pills, then served it to her twenty-year-old daughter Ashley. The authorities would find Ashley with a suicide note, confessing to the anti-freeze murder. But Stacey's plan backfired--because Ashley refused to die. . . A Killer For A Mother Charged with murdering her second husband--and attempting to kill her oldest daughter--Stacey Castor sparked a media frenzy. But when police dug up her first husband's grave--and found anti-freeze in his body, too--this New York housewife earned a nickname that would follow her all the way to prison. They called her "The Black Widow." And with good reason. Includes 16 Pages of Shocking Photos

Author: Marta Caminero-Santangelo
Publisher: Cornell University Press
In this work, the subversive madwoman first appropriated by feminist theorists and critics is re-evaluated. How, the author asks, can such a figure be subversive if she's effectively imprisoned, silent and unseen? Taking issue with a prominent strand of current feminist literary criticism, Caminero-Santangelo identifies a counternarrative in writing by women in the last half of the 20th century, one which rejects madness, even as a symbolic resolution.
