From TFA: "Investigators also discovered that Meika had sustained a severe third-degree burn to her hand and palm and had some other undetermined injuries prior to her death."

So they were trying to kill the kid slowly with torture involved? They did it more than once? Even if the motive was revenge on the other natural parent, that is pretty psychopathic.

Ghengis_Socrates: ShannonKW: eally? "Stone cold psychopaths?" Is that the default theory after everyone's seen Silence of the Lambs? "Somebody lost their temper" just too banal for you?

In light of the previous injuries discovered during the autopsy, said person would have had to lost their temper multiple times. That would tend to indicate "psychopath".

ShannonKW: I meant, has someone who is connnected with this case (such as the prosecutor) suggested a motive for this crime?

I know what you meant. It is silly to look for a "motive" for beating your child multiple times.

I'm going to go with the "one parent trying to get back at the other parent who probably has primary custody by killing the child or children" as motive. We've been seeing a lot of that sh*t in Canada recently, and sadly when you see the faces of the ultimate victims, it just gets f*cking worse.

Ghengis_Socrates: ShannonKW: Anybody know if there's a plausible theory as to why they killed the kid?

I am going with: one or more of the two adults are stone cold psychopaths. Any other theories? I am out of ideas.

My guess is at least one of them either abused her for some sick pleasure or as a form of punishment. This time it went too far and she died.

The way they took her to a hospital tells me they didn't intend for her to die. They also didn't seem to do anything to hide it so it doesn't appear to be planned.

I think a fair punishment would be to give them both the claws that are used in cockfights and tell them they're free to go if they kill the other. Then when one of them is dead, you tell them congratulations, pull out a .45, then shoot them in the head
