This little girl was diagnosed with autism at age 2. When she was four years old, her mother decided to kill her and then commit suicide, but she couldn’t immediately bring herself to do it. She drove around her city with the child in the car for some time before slamming into a highway median. When the little girl started crying, scared by the collision, her mother strangled her to death. Her mother was arrested.
The woman who killed her four-year-old daughter got only a three-year sentence.
