    How do you jail a half ton woman?

    Prosecutors are trying to decide how to jail and bring to court a nearly half-ton, bedridden woman accused of killing her 2-year-old nephew.

    A grand jury indicted Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, 27, on Thursday on one count of first-degree murder and on one count of injury to a child in the death of Eliseo Gonzalez Jr. She previously had been charged with capital murder.

    Rosales weighs nearly 1,000 pounds and cannot fit through a door to leave her home, leaving prosecutors wondering how to bring her to court. As of Thursday evening, she was not in custody.

    Can they just get her convicted then not actually sentence her? It would be a huge drain on the prison system to have to take care of her.

    If she is guilty of murder, couldn't they just wait and try her later if her health improves?

    Let her take care of herself... nature will take its course.

    No outside help for her, no visitors, no one to get her groceries. She would last 2 weeks.

    Ironically hasn't she really already imprisoned herself? I mean you could leave her most anywhere and she isn't going to be able to escape.

    Does anyone else have images of Bender when he was turned into a human running through their mind?

    Sentence her to 1 year with Richard Simmons in house arrest. Maybe then her fat *** will slim down and she can go to a real jail, or just be annoyed to death by Richard.

    Just glue a twinkie to the ground - she won't be going anywhere.

    Honestly, how does anyone allow themself to get to 1000 pounds? I can understand 300 maybe even 500 but I can't fathom how your body and skin even allows for something that large.

    I believe that she has already created a prison for herself. at 1000 pounds, justice will be had, just a matter of time.

    Nature will take its course; no use wasting any taxpayer $$ on her.

    The heal question is how she managed to kill someone at that weight. I can't imagine she would be chasing someone down.

    edit: never mind, I just saw that she killed a 2 year old. That is sick.

    Yes.

    The weird part (believe it or not), is that the kid's mother is also being charged with murder--just for leaving the chiild alone with her sister.

    C'mon, it's not like she left the kid in a cage with a Rottweiler.
