Amanda Sorenson, Chili Powder, Killed Boyfriend's Two-Year-Old

Amanda Sorenson, pictured above, was arrested Monday for allegedly force-feeding chili powder to her boyfriend's 2-year-old daughter.


Amanda Sorensen, 21, is under arrest for the death of her boyfriend's 2-year-old daughter, who suffered a seizure after she fed her chili powder.

Police in California were called to the scene at 4:16 p.m. on Sunday. The child was then taken to a local hospital before being pronounced dead, according to KTLA News.

"We responded to a report of a child suffering a seizure," San Bernardino County sheriff spokeswoman Jodi Miller told the Daily News. "We did not comment as to anything that may have occurred as part of the ongoing investigation."

Capsaicin is the active component in chili powder. While fatal only in large amounts in adults, it can be fatal in a far smaller serving in children.

In 2005, 20-year-old mother Nicole Disabella was charged with the murder of her 5-month-old daughter after giving her a lethal dose of chili powder. She had fed her daughter the spice in an attempt to make her stop sucking her thumb.

Sorensen, who allegedly gave her boyfriend's toddler chili powder as punishment, is being held on $500,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center.

She was taking it out on the child that she was pissed that she had to share the boyfriend. Her child was in perfect condition, which is pretty normal in cases like this. People need to start being more selective of who they let near their children.

Quoting Bigmetalchicken:

I agree. So many people are quick to get into serious relationships with others after knowing them a few months, then drag their kid into it. You can't know someone at all after such a short amount of time and forcing your children into it is just stupid. Then they will sit back and wonder where it all went wrong.

Sick. And not that it matters, but it's not even her daughter. Makes me want to throw up.
