You would think if one were to go through the laborious task of adopting – one would committed to extra care and love, but apparently that’s not the case with this witch of a woman who adopted a tiny little baby and then tortured him…
MUSCATINE, Iowa — A former Muscatine woman pleaded guilty Friday to shaking her adopted 2-month-old son in September 2007.
Melanie Addington, 31, sobbed after she quietly answered “guilty” to a reduced charge of child endangerment causing injury, a Class D felony.
She was originally charged with child endangerment causing serious injury, a Class C felony.
Her attorney John Wunder asked Addington to confirm a confession she made to police that she shook the boy at her apartment on Sept. 5, 2007, while he was wrapped in a blanket and then threw him into a bouncy chair.
“I’m sorry,” she cried.
