Mother Who Buried Her Baby Son Alive Gets Life; Never Wanted and Never Loved Her Baby
It’s a little sickening how men are usually convicted so harshly after killing their children, but if a mother does it, then she’s often given a light sentence because, well, any mother who would kill her children must be mentally ill. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case for Narjes Modarresi, sentenced to life in prison yesterday for the cruel murder of her two-month-old baby boy.
A Texas mother who buried her infant son alive has been convicted of capital murder – despite her lawyer’s arguments that she is mentally ill.
Narjes Modarresi, 32, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday for the April 2010 murder of two-month-old Masih Golabbakhsh. A jury in Houston, Texas, returned a guilty verdict after deliberating for two hours.
Prosecutor Sunni Mitchell told jurors that Modarresi never formed a bond with little Masih – a baby ‘she never wanted and never loved.’
Modarresi, an Iranian immigrant, showed no expression in court as she was found guilty – and again a short time later when District Judge Maria Jackson sentenced her to life in prison.
Her lawyers had argued for the jury to convict her of the lesser charge of felony murder – saying she suffered from depression and bi-polar disorder.
It’s hard to believe that bipolar disorder would make this woman forget that it’s wrong to murder an innocent two-month-old child. Thank God that the jury saw right through it.
