Prison Scuffle For Wis. Fetal-Abduction Suspect

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee County sheriff’s office says an inmate accused of killing a pregnant woman and trying to steal her unborn baby has assaulted a prison guard.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin says 33-year-old Annette Morales-Rodriguez was involved in an altercation Monday night.

McLaughlin on Tuesday said the officer was conducting security rounds about 10 p.m. when Morales-Rodriguez grabbed the officer’s radio and threw it out of reach. That sparked a seven-minute struggle that McLaughlin says ended after the officer used “several focused strikes” and shoved Morales-Rodriguez into a cell.

McLaughlin says the inmate said, “I just want to go home.” The guard sustained minor scrapes.

A message left with the Morales-Rodriguez’s attorney Tuesday was not immediately returned. Her attorney has entered insanity pleas on her behalf to two homicide charges.

Just kill her and get it over with…she did something really horrific and evil..she knew what she was doing and in order to prove that insanity theory she’ll have to be in compliance with the testing that they do…and this attorney representing her…ROT!!! That is disgusting to even remotely want to defend her….
