Judge Darla Williamson found Melissa Jenkins to the death of his son Robert whose dead body with rocks stuffed in his pockets was found in a canal in Idaho was found last July 2009. Williamson said as the mother she should have protected her from the abuses of Jenkins boyfriend 38-year-old Daniel Ehrlick.
Jenkins for her part tearfully asked forgiveness to the boy’ father Charles Manwill for their son’s death.Last June, Ehrlick had already been convicted to life imprisonment for first degree murder without the possibility of parole for the boy’s death. Based on court records, Ehrlick killed the 8-year-old boy, then stuffed rocks in the boy’s pants pockets and dumped his body in an irrigation canal.
