Ohio: Mother charged in death of 28-pound teen girl

DAYTON, Ohio — An Ohio woman and three others have been charged in the death of her 14-year-old daughter, who had cerebral palsy and weighed 28 pounds when she died.

The Montgomery County coroner's office ruled that the girl died March 1 from nutritional and medical neglect complicated by her chronic condition. She died minutes after paramedics rushed her to a hospital.

A Dayton grand jury indicted the girl's mother, 42-year-old Angela Norman, on Thursday on charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering children. The teen's former nurse faces charges including involuntary manslaughter. Two other women are charged with failing to report child abuse.

Prosecutor's spokesman Greg Flannagan says Norman was arrested Wednesday and is in jail. No attorney is listed for her.

It is so sad that everyone failed this young girl. All involved need to be in jail. What is happening with mothers abusing and killing their children and then trying to cover it up. Mothers these are innocent little babies or a teen that cannot defend themselves against your power. Young mothers if you do not want to tend to your children any more then give them up for adoption or something. I know that there are lots of families that could give them good homes.

Relatives of families that abuse their children start reporting the abuse and possibly save a child. Get that person who is abusing HELP!!!!! If you know something is wrong and let it continue then you are just a guilty. HELP SAVE THE LITTLE INOCENT CHILD.

This is absolutely tragic. As a nurse it saddens me to think that this girl's nurse failed to file a report. We are not only the Patient Advocate, we are MANDATORY REPORTERS! I personally wonder who the doctor was following that Plan of Care? As a parent, it hurts my heart to think someone could do this to their own child. Absolutely tragic.....
