Mother Kills Sons Afraid They Will Become Abusers Later In Life

This is a messed up story. When I first saw it I thought is this one of those extreme feminists that despised the idea of raising boys. But no, this is a case of abuse and mental illness left unchecked. Ohio resident Brittany Pilkington killed her three sons over the course of two years, and it could have been avoided.

Brittany Renee Pilkington, 27, was sentenced to 37 years in prison after pleading guilty on Tuesday to the murders, The Daily Mail reported. She will serve seven years for an involuntary manslaughter charge and 15 years to life for each of the two murder charges.

The first son she killed was an infant named Niall in July 2014. She then killed four-year-old Gavin in April 2015. Three-month-old Noah was smothered in August 2015. She confessed to what she had done when Noah was found.

In a taped confession, Pilkington told police she was depressed and feared her sons would one-day abuse women.

Her husband, 47-year-old Joseph, pleaded guilty “to a misdemeanor charge of sexual imposition for having sex with her before they were married, when she was underage,” the Mail reported. Joseph had originally been charged with sexual battery because he started his “relationship” with Brittany when she was 17 and impregnating her at that time.”

Joseph met Brittany after he started dating her mother and they dated for years. So there is no telling as to how long she was preyed upon before she became pregnant.

Logan County prosecutors claimed that Pilkington killed her sons because she was jealous of the attention her husband paid to their sons but not to her and their daughter.

Pilkington suffered lead poisoning as a child followed by years of physical and sexual abuse with no intervention by authorities, said Kort Gatterdam, one of her attorneys.

Her parents, social service agencies and schools all failed to protect her, he said. A scan identified brain damage.

‘Sadly, she´s safer living a better life in jail than on the outside,’ Gatterdam said, calling his client ‘irreparably damaged.’

Attorney Tina McFall, reading a statement on behalf of Pilkington, said she ‘loves and misses all of her children and grieves for them every day.’

So a statutory rapist is allowed to marry his victim. Where was her family to stop this? How is this allowed? And to top it off, the last son was actually removed for a while from Brittany Pilkington’s care and could have been saved from this fate. But instead the courts gave the child back and she killed that one too. They claim they didn’t realize what was happening.

She could have killed these kids for numerous reasons. She’s having the kids of the guy that has been raping and molesting her for years, the courts proved she has brain damage, and she just recently gave birth. So this could be an extreme case of postpartum depression that she was not treated for. She may have killed these boys and deserves to be put away for it at the very least. But it seems like her community failed her a long time ago and this could have been prevented.
