DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit couple accused of trying to cremate their slain 2-year-old son on a barbecue grill and then collecting his welfare benefits have pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors. Twenty-eight-year-old Joseph Miller pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder and 23-year-old Nickella Reid pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and welfare fraud.
Police found the remains of 2-year-old Deuntay Miller while investigating the 2007 scalding of the couple's 1-year-old son, Nicholas. Reid faces up to 15 years in prison at her April 7 sentencing.
Miller faces up to 50 years at his April 16 sentencing. Before the plea deal he had been charged with first-degree murder and if convicted would have faced life with no possibility of parole.
What the hell kinda world do we live in? Do you think if you recieve welfare and are called out for possible abuse, that you should no longer recieve welfare?

Execute them both and don't waste food, jail housing space and medical care on them for the next 40 or 50 years. These, and I use the word loosely, people, are a total waste of oxygen.
