MURDER OF HER CHILDREN GETS MOTHER A SLAP ON THE WRIST BECAUSE

‘SHE WAS ON DRUGS’??????? EXECUTE THE WOMAN WOULD BE MORE IN LINE

An Australian mother has been convicted in Canada of the manslaughter of her two young sons after their bodies were found floating in a bathtub.

An Alberta judge found Allyson McConnell, 33, formerly from Gosford on the NSW Central Coast, not guilty of the more serious second degree murder charges.

Justice Michelle Crichton ruled there was reasonable doubt McConnell was able to form the intent to murder 10-month-old Jayden and two-year-old Connor by drowning them in a bathtub in the family’s Millet, Alberta, home on February 1, 2010.

After an emotional two-week trial in Wetaskiwin, Justice Crichton took a month to come to Friday’s verdict.

McConnell, who has made repeated suicide attempts and has been held in the psychiatric ward at an Alberta hospital, will be sentenced on May 9.

In 2006, McConnell worked at a Canadian ski resort and met local man Curtis McConnell.

They wed in 2007, had Jayden and Connor, but in 2009 the marriage was heading for divorce and a judge prevented McConnell from taking her sons to Australia.

Mr McConnell, who found his deceased sons in the bathtub, has filed a $C940,000 ($A913,500) civil suit against his former wife.

McConnell admitted drowning her sons, but her legal team argued she did not form the intent to kill them.

Forensic computer analyst Dwayne Pilling told the court internet searches found on McConnell’s computer included ‘‘How long does it take to drown?’’, ‘‘How long does it take to die from strangulation?’’, ‘‘electrocution by hair dryer in bathtub’’ and ‘‘How long can you go without food and water?’’

After drowning her sons, McConnell drove to a Toys R Us store, then walked to a nearby hotel, ordered lunch, became emotional and went to a freeway overpass and jumped off onto traffic below, the court heard.

Editor-It’s a sick, sick world when you  get off a murder charge if you can substantiate you were drug  f…cked at the time. a bullet in the head is just too good and kind for these people.

Are there feelings for the persons who were killed?
