A woman is accused of killing her two-year-old nephew but prosecutors in Texas do not yet know how to get her to jail and court - because she weighs nearly half a ton.
Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, from La Jola, Texas, is bedridden and weighs nearly 1,000 lbs.
But she cannot get through her front door to be taken to jail and, later, court.
A grand jury has already agreed she should face charges of murder and injury in connection with the death of Eliseo Gonzalez Jr.
He died while in her care in March and the 27-year-old is accused of killing her nephew with two blows to the head.
She explained away the injuries by saying she had slipped, landing with her right hand on Eliseo's head while trying to pick him off the floor, and that he fell off a chair.
But a post-mortem found that Eliseo's injuries were "consistent with blunt force trauma" and that Mayra Rosales' explanations were inconsistent with the injuries.The morbidly obese woman has since been photographed and finger-printed at home but released on a "personal recognizance bond" because of the logistics problem
The local sheriff at Hidalgo County, Lupe Trevino, says it would be impossible to keep her in jail pending her trial because she needs extensive medical care.

Have this fat pig stand trial under a tent. There is absolutely no need for a human to be 1,000 pounds. Anybody with that type of personality to actually stuff their face continually till they tip the scale at 1/2 a ton is capable of inflicting the blows that killed this child.

If she's bedridden, light a corner of her mattress on fire and see how quick that fatty rolls off that bed & gets out the door.

Anybody stupid enough to leave their 2 year old child in the care of Jabba should be sterilized as well.

It would cost more money to keep her in prison and provide the medical care then it would be worth, plus it would set a precedent for law suits. Tough Question.

There are all ready eating disorder clinics for anorexia and bulimia. why not have more specialized clinics for these people? Oh wait, it would cost insurance companies $$, can't have that why spend money to save money in the future (preventative maintenance)? That was one of the original ideas of HMOs when they first came out. That idea has now become hell on earth for anyone who ever has tried to deal with an insurance company.

Hospitals do not like to keep people any longer then they have to, because of insurance companies trying to kick people out we have 4 people full-time who all they do is deal with insurance companies trying to kick people out who need the services. Insurance companies also play $ games. Example Supply A costs the hospital $5.00, insurance company will pay -$2.50 no matter how much Supply A costs.

Imagine how many social workers or nurses could be added in this savings if those 4 people didn't have to negotiate with the insurance companies all day? More then likely this savings would go back to corporate.

Beside arraignments are commonplace when the suspect is too injured to be brought to the courthouse, so I say bring the courthouse to her.

Have the trial right in her house and if found guilty, the state assumes control of her meal plans. When she gets small enough to fit through the door, off to prison/death row she goes.

800-Pound Woman Faces Murder Charge



(Edinburg, Texas) In March 2008, an 800-pound La Joya woman, Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, 27, was arrested and arraigned in her bedroom on charges that she killed her two-year-old nephew, Eliseo Gonzalez Jr.

Mayra Rosales faces one count of capital murder and one count of injury to a child. Her sister, 20-year-old Jamie Rosales, faces a charge of injury to a child for allegedly leaving her son in Mayra's care even though she knew the woman's weight incapacitated her.

Both have entered not guilty pleas.

On Thursday, Mayra Rosales made a court appearance via video teleconference since she is physically incapable of leaving her home.
Court staff projected Rosales' image on a wall during Thursday's hearing, while she talked with state District Judge Ricardo Rodriguez Jr. from her bed in Sullivan City. A blue curtain obscured the woman's body up to her chin.

She spoke little during the hearing and responded to the judge's questions mostly in one-word answers

"For now, this is how we're going to conduct the hearings," Rodriguez said, referring to the video projection system. "I'm not sure yet how we're going to conduct a trial."

State law requires that all district court defendants be tried

in the county seat - in this case Edinburg.Therefore, if a trial is necessary, a forklift and a flatbed truck may have to be employed.
