Baby microwaved by Satan controlled husband, says wife

A man put his baby daughter in the microwave for up to 20 seconds because the devil didn’t want him to become a preacher, according to his deluded wife. Follow the link if you want to see the police reaction to the microwaved baby.

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A woman blames the devil, and not her husband, for severely burning their infant daughter in a microwave, a Texas television station reported.

Eva Marie Mauldin said Satan compelled her 19-year-old husband, Joshua Royce Mauldin, to microwave their daughter May 10 because the devil disapproved of Joshua’s efforts to become a preacher.

“Satan saw my husband as a threat,” Eva Mauldin told Houston television station KHOU-TV.

A grand jury indicted Joshua Mauldin last week on child injury charges after hearing evidence that he placed the two-month-old in a motel microwave for 10 to 20 seconds.

The infant, Ana Marie, remains hospitalized. She suffered burns on the left side of her face and to her left hand, police said.

Police said Joshua Mauldin told them he put Ana Marie in the microwave because he was under stress. Eva Maudlin denied it.

“He would never do anything to hurt her. He loves her,” she said.

She is hoping to be reunited with her daughter, but Child Protective Services is working to have the parental rights severed.

I would say that religious beliefs are alright, but this woman is just looking for excuses for the behavior of her lunatic husband. Unless she accepts the causes of what happened, she will never be a fit mother.

    As the father of a 7 month daughter myself, this story makes me sick. The husband is clearly not father material, and just plain stupid to boot. And the mother is a religious fanatic to the point of using her religion to justify microwaving her own child. I hope child protective services do their job and find that baby girl a good home, far away from her biological parents.

    Child abuse cases like that are not as uncommon as we might think. I’m commenting because I can remember not too long ago a woman on meth doing the same not far from where I live. Kids having limbs, or whole babies, being forced into scalding water, buring with irons and such happen regularly enough to not be much like news.

    An American put a wet cat of pet in the microwave to dry and warm it up a few dacades ago.
    And the cat died.
    Then the person sued the manufacturer that it ought to have warn clearly not to put in a cat.
    He won huge liquidated damage.
    Is above the one more round?

    20 seconds?

    What a fucking idiot.

    Everyone knows that babies (like cats) take a good 40 seconds to start to sizzle.

    Hopefully they can learn from this experience.
