Same reasons a man kills a child or anyone else. Mental illness, selfishness, greed and many other reasons. Most in prison are abuse victims and many suffer mental illness. Seems women get more of a free pass than men. Men and women are both capable of evil. Children are also more likely to be killed by mom and dad than a stranger. I know it is hard for people to wrap their heads around that but it is true. Stranger abductions are rare in comparison to parents that harm their children. Just because a woman has a uterus and can spread her legs does not mean she is a mom.
