Horrible abuela beats 6-month-old granddaughter to death, should rot in jail

Most moms trust only their closest relative or friends to look after their infants, and rightly so. But what happens when your own family suddenly turns on you? That's exactly what happened in a recent horrifying case out of Chicago, in which a woman left to watch her 6-month-old granddaughter started bludgeoning her instead and eventually ended up cutting the poor little girl's throat.

How could anyone do that to their own granddaughter? Talk about pure evil.

Police say Alfreda Giedrojc was supposed to be watching the baby after her father and grandfather had stepped out to help with repairs on a nearby home. Instead, while they were away, Giedrojc reportedly laid the child on the floor and began hitting her several times with a sledgehammer. According to authorities, she then picked the baby up and used a knife to slit her throat while she was still alive. The whole scene is so gruesome and horrible, it makes it hard to accept that this really happened and that someone out there is actually capable of doing this--to their own family member, no less.

The question is, why? Giedrojc's motives are still unclear. When officials questioned her, the 61-year-old reportedly expressed remorse for the child's death and investigators found no records of past criminal history or mental illness. She is now being held without bail on first-degree murder charges.

Honestly, it's unthinkable that anyone can do this to an innocent baby and especially the baby's own grandmother. I can't even begin to imagine what that child's parents must be going through now, having lost their baby at the hands of someone they loved and thought they could trust. I only hope justice is served and that this woman spends the rest of her life in jail, where she belongs.
