The five-year-old brother of a girl who was beaten and starved to death by their mother brought food to her funeral so she would have enough to eat in heaven, it was revealed.
‘Monster mom’ Carlotta Brett-Pierce was found guilty of murder last month and sentenced to 32 years to life in prison yesterday.
Her four-year-old daughter Marchella died covered in bruises and open wounds and weighing only 19 pounds in September 2010. She was found drugged and beaten, tied to her SpongeBob SquarePants bed at the Brooklyn home.

The little girl, who was force-fed allergy pills, was often beaten in front of her brother Tymel.
Prosecutor Jacqueline Kagan revealed that Tymel, now seven, was deeply traumatized by the events he witnessed at home and still grieves for his sister.
When he attended her funeral, he had brought food with him so that he could help his sister.

Ms Kagan said: ‘He brought with him food because he knew she didn’t get enough. And he told his foster mother, ”I hope that she gets enough food and water in heaven,”’ according to the New York Post.
The month-long trial of Brett-Pierce, 32, in a Brooklyn court room finished quickly on May 9 with the jury requiring only one hour to deliberate over her guilt.

When Marchella Brett-Pierce was found, she was tied to her bed with jump ropes, had been beaten, starved and drugged.
Prosecutors say she had dozens of marks and open wounds on her tiny body which was so emaciated, every rib could be seen.
Carlotta Brett-Pierce was emotionless when the jury proclaimed her guilty of her daughter Marchella’s death. Her punishment did not even stop her from giving the judge some attitude when asked if she understood.
‘I heard what you said,’ the 32-year-old said.
Abused: Marchella was born prematurely with breathing problems and died when she was four years old
Accomplice: The girl’s grandmother, Loretta Pierce, will serve up to 15 years for manslaughter
She has refused to accept blame for the death of her daughter, blaming the jurors, lawyers and the press for her murder conviction, calling it a ‘tragedy’.
Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Patricia DiMango said yesterday: ‘This child, at her tender age, was subjected to a hell that no one should have to endure.
‘What kind of person could do this to a child, let alone their own child?’ she said, according to DNAinfo.com
During the trial, Brett-Pierce’s answers painted a ghastly picture of their home life.
She said of her daughter near the time of her September 2010 death: ‘To me, at the time, it didn’t look bad.’
Brett-Pierce said that her daughter lost weight by running around in the heat and sustained the bruises from falling in the stairway.
Judge DiMango also sentenced grandmother Loretta Brett to five to 15 years in prison for manslaughter in the death.
Throughout the trial, her lawyers switched between disproving the prosecutions tales of horrific beatings and arguing that Brett-Pierce was an overwhelmed mother with a sick daughter that she didn’t know how to care for.
Marchella spent the first three-and-a-half years of her life in hospital after she was born prematurely with severe breathing difficulties.
Her mother admitted on the stand that in the seven months she was in her care, she never took the four-year-old to a pediatrician.

A prosecutor showed the mother a doctor’s note indicating that her youngest boy weighed 18 pounds at nine months – roughly the same weight as four-year-old Marchella when she died.
She told the court she fed her daughter ‘potato chips, fried chicken and cheese doodles’, but an autopsy recorded that only a single corn kernel was found in her body, along with a high level of antihistamines.
Marchella should have been on a specialized diet and fed through a tube, which prosecutors say the mother totally ignored, instead feeding her junk food.
Unrepentant: Brett-Pierce will serve 32 years to life in prison for the murder of her daughter
During questioning she denied certain things she had already told police and called Marchella ‘my baby’ as opposed to ‘that b***h’ – which she was heard calling her in a recorded jail conversation played for the jury saying: ‘That b***h wasn’t that f***ing light.’
When she was released from hospital seven months before her death, she weighed 26lbs- a stark contrast from her final weight of 18.9 pounds.
The Administration for Children’s Services became involved with the family after Brett Pierce gave birth to a boy who tested positive for drugs.
Two social workers from ACS who had involvement in Marchella’s case were charged separately with criminally negligent homicide for failing to prevent the tragic death.
Damon Adams and Chereece Bell were both charged with criminally negligent homicide, official misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child. Their case is due to begin.
As you read this list, understand cell lines and vaccines do become contaminated. This is often hidden under the term “adventitious agents.”
Disgusting Ingredient #1: Cells From Aborted Fetus
Aborted fetal cells, listed on vaccine package inserts as “Human Fetal Diploid Cells.” Two aborted fetal cell lines, WI-38 and MRC-5, have been grown under laboratory conditions since the 1960s.
The cells are used to grow viruses used which are then collected from the cell cultures and processed further to produce the vaccine itself.
Terms to Investigate: PERC6, MRC5, WI-38, HEK-293
Which Vaccines? Adenovirus vaccine, DTaP vaccine, Hep A vaccine, Hep B vaccine, MMR vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #2: Serum From Aborted Calf Fetus Blood
One of the more grotesque methods involved in vaccine manufacturing is the collection of fetal bovine serum. The purpose for serum is providing a nutrient broth for viruses to grow in cells.
How is the blood collected?
According to the Humane Research Australia website:
After slaughter and bleeding of the cow at an abattoir, the mother’s uterus containing the calf fetus is removed during the evisceration process (removal of the mother’s internal organs) and transferred to the blood collection room. A needle is then inserted between the fetus’s ribs directly into its heart and the blood is vacuumed into a sterile collection bag. This process is aimed at minimizing the risk of contamination of the serum with micro-organisms from the fetus and its environment. Only fetuses over the age of three months are used otherwise the heart is considered too small to puncture.
Once collected, the blood is allowed to clot at room temperature and the serum separated through a process known as refrigerated centrifugation. 
Terms to Investigate: Fetal Bovine Serum
Which Vaccines? Adenovirus vaccine, MMR vaccine, Rotavirus vaccine, Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #3: Cells From Armyworms
The FDA approved the Flublok vaccine on January 16, 2013.
This new technology is being touted as the wave of the future. It utilizes an insect cell line (expresSF+®) that is derived from cells of the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda.
The vaccine package insert for Flublok also mentions:
Each 0.5 mL dose of Flublok may also contain residual amounts of baculovirus and host cell proteins (≤ 28.5 mcg), baculovirus and cellular DNA (≤ 10 ng) … 
Terms to Investigate: insect cell line (expresSF+)
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #4: Cells From Monkey Kidneys
As mentioned above, monkey kidney tissue is used to support the growth of certain viruses used in vaccine production. There remains a huge controversy over using these cells and their role contaminating the polio vaccine in the 1950s.
The story is best told in the Congressional papers of a courageous scientist, Bernice Eddy. The Executive Reorganization and Government Research of the Committee on Government Operations United States Senate, Ninety-Second Congress, Second Session  states on page 500:
The next and only serious vaccine crisis that has occurred since the polio episode was the realization in mid-1961 that a monkey virus later shown to cause tumors in hamsters was contaminating both polio and adenovirus vaccines. The virus, known as SV40, was entering the vaccines and, just as in the polio case were surviving the formalin treatment.
There were several states by which the full extent of the SV40 problem became known. First was the discovery in 1959-1960 by a DBS scientist, once again Bernice Eddy, that an unknown agent in the monkey kidney cells used to produce polio and adenovirus vaccines would cause tumors when the cells were injected into hamsters.
In 1954 Eddy, as a polio control officer, found live virus in supposedly killed polio vaccine; in 1955 she was relieved of her duties as polio control officer … After her discoveries concerning the SV40 virus, her staff and animal space were reduced and she was demoted from head of a section to head of a unit.
… even when the contaminating virus was found to be oncogenic [cancer causing] in hamsters, the DBS [Division of Biologics Standards] and its expert advisory committee decided to leave existing stocks on the market rather than risk eroding public confidence by a recall.
There has been a tendency on the part of certain higher government circles to play down any open discussion of problems associated with vaccines … 
Terms to Investigate: Vero (monkey kidney) cell culture, SV40, Bernice Eddy
Which Vaccines? DTaP vaccine, Japanese Encephalitis vaccine, Polio vaccine, Rotavirus vaccine, Vaccinia vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #5: Cells From Dog Kidneys
On November 20, 2012, the FDA approved the seasonal influenza vaccine, Flucelvax, manufactured by Novartis. 
This vaccine is mass-produced using the continuous cell line Madin Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) as vaccine cell substrate. 
Terms to Investigate: Madin Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK)
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #6: Mouse Brain
Viral vaccines prepared in tissue culture or mouse brain have been used in many Asian countries. According to the CDC website, the inactivated mouse brain-derived JE vaccine used in the United States since 1992 is no longer available. 
Of course, with any vaccine, the adverse reactions are rarely tracked and downplayed by medical authorities. However, the injuries from vaccines can be quite serious. [7, 8]
Terms to Investigate: inactivated mouse brain (IMB), suckling mouse brain (SMB), JE virus (Beijing-1), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
Which Vaccines? Japanese encephalitis vaccine, Rabies vaccine
Disgusting Ingredient #7: Chicken Embryos
Chickens and their embryos have long been used in the production of vaccines.
These methods were popularized in the 1920s and 1930s by Thomas Rivers and others at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. 
Terms to Investigate: Chick embryo
Which Vaccines? Influenza vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Yellow fever vaccine
Florida woman – who had been serving a 20-year sentence for firing what she described as a warning shot at her abusive husband – was released from jail Wednesday night, according to a report from First Coast News. Her bond was set at $200,009.
Although no one was injured in the incident, a jury convicted Alexander of multiple counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in 2012, requiring a 20 year sentence thanks to Florida’s “10-20-Life” law, which sets mandatory minimum sentences for crimes committed with a gun. Her conviction was overturned in September when a judge ordered a retrial after finding that the jury instructions in her original trial were erroneous and had unfairly put the burden on Alexander to prove that she had fired her shot in self-defense.
Alexander has spent more than 1,000 days behind bars, according to her lawyers’ count, keeping her away from her youngest child for most of the first three years of her life.
The organizers behind the Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign cheered her release in a statement Thursday on the group’s Facebook page.
“We are thrilled that Ms. Alexander will be able to prepare for her new trial amid the support and love of her children and family from whom she has been separated far too long,” the statement read. “The Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign is more determined than ever to win complete exoneration for Marissa Alexander.”
Heather Koon, 25, is facing two counts of rape after police found video footage on her laptop of her “engaging in sexual conduct with an unknown infant.” James Osborne, Koon’s boyfriend who lives with her and is a registered sex offender, was also arrested on Oct. 4, after police discovered the laptop at their apartment. They are being held at Lorain County Jail, where Koon is being held on $2 million bond, $1 million for each felony count. She isn’t worthy of the air she breathes, and deserves to rot in jail!
The two victims, between 1 and 2 years old, were sexually assaulted by Koon at ABC Kidz child care in Elyria. Many parents have come forward to express concern for their children, who may have also fallen victim to this heinous crime.
“He doesn’t like his diaper being changed. He doesn’t like being touched … when I used to drop him off there, he used to scream so bad that he would be like hyperventilating,” says Andrea Lankey of her 2-year-old, who was also under Koon’s care. I can’t imagine the anger and rage that these parents must feel. I don’t think I’d ever fully recover from something like this happening to my family.
Despite Lankey’s suspicions, attorney for ABC Kidz Carlos Johnson says that the company does not believe there were other victims. The father of the victim in the video says that representatives from ABC Kidz tried to downplay the whole thing, writing it off as a simple assault.
“A few hours later they called us back again and asked us to keep it discreet,” says the father, who wishes to remain anonymous. Unbelievable! These are our children, this is the kind of news that needs to be brought to EVERYONE’S attention.
ABC Kidz released the following statement:
“The daycare is cooperating with the investigation and we’re compiling a list to determine which kids were present while she, Heather Koon, worked there. We do not think there are more victims, but out of the abundance of cautiousness we want to make sure that we are correct.”
A Long Island mom who admitted to drowning her three children has given birth to a fourth while incarcerated.
NBC New York reports that Leatrice Brewer, 33, was impregnated at the Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Center in New Hampton where she’s been locked up since admitting to drowning her three kids in a bathtub in 2008.
The center refused to comment, citing privacy laws, and it remains unclear who the father of Brewer’s child is or how she was able to get pregnant at the secure facility, according to NBC New York.
Attorney Tom Foley, who represents the father of two of Brewer’s deceased children, called her pregnancy “outrageous”.
“This person’s supposedly in a secure facility and she gets pregnant,” Foley said. “This is the woman who had no idea what she was doing when she murdered her children.”
The Associated Press reported last week that Brewer, who was found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, is also seeking a cut of $350,000 won by the fathers of her children in wrongful death lawsuits.
Psychiatrists who evaluated Brewer said she had a major depressive disorder and likely killed her children because she wanted to save them from the deadly effects of voodoo, according to the AP.
Shortly after she killed her children, Brewer attempted suicide, first by swallowing a combination of cleaning products and then by jumping out of a two-story window.
Police have been searching for the person who fatally shot a pregnant western Pennsylvania woman as she opened her apartment door.
Ambridge police say the shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The Beaver County coroner has identified the woman as 19-year-old Conekia Finney.
An autopsy was scheduled later today, though investigators expect it will confirm she died of the gunshot wound to her chest. The woman was about seven months pregnant and her unborn child died as well.
Ambridge is about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
Sgt. James Mann, the acting police chief in the community, says Finney was shot immediately upon answering the door. Police haven’t speculated as to a motive or said whether they have any suspects.
