Prosecutors say a 38-year-old Oakland man killed his girlfriend's young son, dumped his body in the water, then killed her to stop her from telling anyone.
Police found the body of 17-month-old Jashon Williams floating near the Berkeley Marina on Sunday — two days after the body of his mother, Zoelina Williams, was found in nearby Aquatic Park.
Martin previously was convicted of killing a girlfriend's child. He pleaded guilty in 1994 to voluntary manslaughter in a plea deal that got him 11 years in prison. He was released in six years after getting credit for time served.
First of all, women need to grasp that the number one threat to the children of unmarried women is moms' boyfriends. They're the ones who by and large do the bulk of the molesting, abusing, and murdering. So don't do the Horizontal Bop with somebody you'd not want to stick around and raise the kids with. And if he seemed like Mr. Right at the time and then morphed into a sleezebag, try waiting until your kids are grown before you start bringing strange men into their lives.
Second of all, the guy who murdered this kid HAD ALREADY DONE TIME FOR KILLING ANOTHER GIRLFRIEND'S KID. "This guy's bad news" isn't something you need a PhD to grasp in a situation like that.
In this sad case, the guy also killed the mother so she'd not narc on him for offing the kid, so she's paying the same price her child did for her bad judgment. But it was her bad judgment.
