  1. Is the baby name Marcia or Melodi? Please edit it with the right name..

    * I’m just not understanding why all of these people are targeting these babies.. they need to throw her under the jail!

  2. I am sick and tired of these people hurting children. If I was the sister I would post her bond and kill her at the the jail door when she walks out. Seems like jealously to me.
