Woman Accused of Kidnapping and Killing of 12-Year-Old Houston Boy in 2010 goes on Trial Today
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The trial begins today for the woman accused of kidnapping and murdering a boy.
Mona Nelson is charged with capital murder. Prosecutors say she kidnapped 12-year-old Jonathon Foster on Christmas Eve of 2010. His burned remains were found in a ditch soon after, but detectives could never come up with a motive.
Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty. Nelson has asked for a judge instead of a jury to decide the verdict.
After a year of Liberals and their MSM ripping their hair out over that "Little Boy" and "Small Black Child" Trayvon Martin and the "White-Hispanic Male" who shot him, this is the horrific torture murder of an actual little boy and small child, 12 year old white boy, Jonathan Foster (see details below) a couple of years ago, who was slowly tortured and burned to death by a black woman with a welding torch.
At the time Nancy Grace of CNN started to carry the story. She cried with anger and outrage as every new horrible detail unfolded. But, as soon as the evidence hinted that it was a Liberal Protected Minority suspected of the gruesome crime, Nancy Grace immediately dropped the story like a bag of wet cement, as if it never happened.
The women accused and in jail for the crime, Mona Yvette Nelson, sought and accepted legal help and counseling from the local leader of the New Black Panther Party. Yet, despite the horrific nature of this crime, despite the torture and over kill, despite it being interracial, and despite the Black Panther connection, NEVER did the media EVER once question if this was a hate crime.
Excerpts from a local TV news media article at the time that I saved and no longer exists. It describes details of the crime that the media now apparently want to keep from the public:
Police Believe Child Was Killed With Welding Torch
HOUSTON --Homicide investigators said a welding torch is the likely weapon used in 12-year-old Jonathan Foster's death, Local 2 Investigates reported Friday. "We're talking crematorium-type of hot," said one Houston Police Department Homicide Squad officer assigned to the investigation. Police said they confiscated a badly burned section of carpet from the home of Mona Yvette Nelson, 44, who stands charged with capital murder. She had a welding background and police found welding equipment in her home on Allwood Street in the Fifth Ward area of Northeast Houston. Police said a section of carpet was badly burned and the smell of a human body filled the area around that carpet. DNA tests are being ordered to analyze any bodily fluids.
One investigator assigned to the case said it now appears Foster was killed at that spot in Nelson's home within hours of being kidnapped from his family's home near Shepherd Drive and 43rd Street in Northwest Houston. Police say she was acquainted with some members of the boy's family.
One officer said on Friday that the autopsy has ruled out any trauma on the child's body. There were no broken bones or any signs of strangulation or head wounds, so officers said it now appears the child was killed with a welding torch that could be capable of 6,000-degree flames. "I've never seen burns like this," said one officer who viewed the boy's body after it was found in a ditch off the Hardy Toll Road on Tuesday. He said that killers often try to cover their tracks by burning the victim's corpse, but in this boy's case, the burning was so intense and thorough that many veteran homicide investigators are struggling with the notion of such a grisly and painful way to die.
