Florida Woman Starves Children and Throws Dead Baby Into Garbage Can

Dave Gibson, Norfolk Examiner (Virginia), October 17, 2009

A few days ago, Christian Rochelle Woods, 21, was charged with manslaughter and two counts of aggravated child abuse after filing a false missing child report on her deceased daughter.

Under questioning, Woods admitted to detectives that she left her three children at home alone for two days, from Saturday morning until Monday. Upon her arrival, she discovered the lifeless body of her18-month-old daughter, Myleahya. Woods, then tossed the toddler into a garbage can.

An autopsy revealed that the little girl was severely underweight, only weighing 11 pounds. The average weight for an 18-month-old is about 25 pounds.


At her arraignment, Woods told Judge John Simon that she was working at a company in Mobile, AL, though her arrest report lists her as unemployed.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report described the living conditions in the house as “filthy” and apparently roach infested. There was no electricity nor running water in the house.


Her two other children, Jaterius and Mykayhla are both being treated at Sacred Heart Hospital for pneumonia and malnutrition.

Woods has a MySpace page with the title: “Life’s short so I live mine to tha fullest.”
