Another beautiful baby girl has died after committing the grievous sin of crying.  5 month old Angelina Rodriguez got to doing what babies do best, crying, and to remedy the situation, her excuse of a father, Rodrigo Rodriguez (real original name eh?), smothered the baby girl as her mother, Angela Petrov, watched.  Once Angelina went limp, he placed her in her playpen, and proceeded to get busy with Petrov.

At 7:00am the next morning, Petrov awoke to get an older child ready for school, then promptly went back to sleep.  It wasn’t until 11:00am that Rodriguez and Petrov noticed Angelina was ‘stiff and unresponsive’ in her playpen.  Their brilliant ideas continued at this point and they tried to throw water on Angelina to revive her.  When the water didn’t work, they claimed they attempted CPR, before finally calling 911.  Angelina was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support after doctors discovered she was suffering from brain swelling, a blown pupil due to lack of oxygen and a skull fracture from a PAST incident.  Sadly, there was nothing that could be done to save Angelina’s life, and she was pronounced dead only days later.

Investigators began to question Rodriguez and Petrov, and Rodriguez eventually admitted that he and Petrov had been drinking that evening with Angelina in the room.  Rodriguez stated that when Angelina woke up and would not stop crying, he handled the situation by placing his hand over the baby girl’s mouth and nose until she stopped crying, and breathing for that matter.  Petrov admitted to police that she watched Rodriguez repeatedly cover the baby’s face until she gasped for air. After the third time around, Angelina went limp and they simply placed her back in her playpen.

Rodriguez and Petrov were arrested and charged with aggravated battery of a child and held on $5,000,000.00 bail.  After Angelina passed away, the charges were upgraded to first degree murder.  Petrov’s bail was then ordered at $500,000.00 and Rodriguez’s at $1,500,000.00.

As of this situation wasn’t already bad enough, it turns out that Rodriguez and Petrov were actually already being investigated for allegations of child abuse involving another child on January 29.  There were two other children in the home who were placed in the care of relatives.

Here’s the only part about this story that I actually like, Rodriguez being the cowardly little sissy that he is, claims he has suffered jailhouse beatings since his arrest, and that “his life is in danger”.  I’m sure his life is not nearly as in danger as his daughter’s was when he was smothering her.  How about a HOORAH for jailhouse justice!  Rodriguez’s attorney stated “He has received several beatings at the jail, his life is in danger at the jail because of the charges against him.  It’s the sheriffs that are beating him.”  Although I doubt it was the sheriffs – HOORAH for the sheriffs!  Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, quickly shut down the allegations stating “Mr. Rodriguez’s allegations are baseless.  He was provided a protective custody housing assignment the same day his request was made.”

The charade of defense attorneys and their outrageous statements did not stop with Rodriguez.  Next up was Petrov’s lawyer objecting to the judge’s order that Petrov be barred from having any contact with her 6 year old son, who allegedly witnessed Rodriguez covering his baby sister’s mouth and nose.  Next he stated that Petrov should be on suicide watch, the whole time which she was pathetically sniffling in the background.

Looking at this beautiful little girl, and knowing that her life was so callously taken at the hands of her own parents is infuriating.  A baby is a miracle, and it is everything that is good in this world bundled into one little package.  They are sweet and innocent and can draw a smile from even the surliest of folks.  They are the reason a parent gets up in the morning, and the reason they are grateful for the lack of sleep exchanged for taking care of these tiny people.  It’s sad to know that in this day in age, anyone can have a child, but not just anyone can be a parent.

A trial has date has not been set for each of these monsters, but we will continue to follow the case until Angelina has justice.
