Throat Punch Thursday~Mother McConnell Edition

Today they continue the hearing that started Monday for Allyson McConnell, a 33 year old mother of two on trial for two counts of second degree murder of her 2 1/2yr and 10 month old boys. Reportedly in termoil trying to survive the divorce from her estranged husband, she drowned both of her little boys in the bathtub of her home on February first, literally leaving them for dead.  Allyson has entered a not guilty plea after admittedly committing this crime; proceeding to drive to Edmonton where she attempted suicide by driving off a bridge into traffic.  Apparently the question is whether she had the "intent required" to be convicted even though the evidence obviously points directly to her.  Let's take a look at some of these facts, shall we?

  • On the morning of Feb. 1, 2010, Allyson McConnell sat down at the computer set up on her dining room table and searched the question, “How long does it take to die from strangulation?” 
  • One search made on the afternoon of Jan. 13, 2010 was “How long does it take to drown?” 

Apparently these among other computer searches and items found in the house that would suggest various methods of suicide or death including a rope hanging in the basement as a noose and small appliances placed near the bathtub plugged in say nothing about intent or pre-meditation?  She left her wedding ring on the toilet for christsake - if that in itself doesn't say revenge, I don't know what does.


  • According to an agreed statement of facts entered during the first day of the trial on Monday, Allyson McConnell drowned the boys, drove to Edmonton, ordered lunch at a hotel then “became emotional” and threw herself off an overpass.

So consequently, leaving her children to drive to another town to a hotel and order lunch before becoming emotional enough to throw herself off an overpass means she was out of her head crazy and now she can enter a non-guilty plea? Who did it if it wasn't her? That's not even a question is it? I don't think so.

The father of the two boys Curtis McConnell who found the boys in the tub said this in court on Monday:


“They were so cold and stiff. I had to pull them out.
“She just left them there to rot.”

Allyson is currently on suicide watch and awaiting the verdict which to me is as plain as the nose on my face. I am disgusted to think that another mother has murdered her own flesh in cold blood and is now trying to get out of it.  My heart aches for the father who rushed to the house after hearing of the suicide attempt, probably thinking she just left them home..only to find them dead. 

I guess I don't understand the logistics of the intent of murder because I think this lady should get a huge punch in the throat and much more for this unspeakable crime. I'm glad that her cowardly attempts of suicide have been unsuccessful so she has to suffer through her reality and rot in jail just like she left her boys to rot.  

It sickens me to think that there's even a chance that she might get off because there's not enough evidence of intent for a conviction.  Just writing that last sentence pissed me off even more.  What kind of bullshit system are we running here? Seriously, if this bitch thinks for one minute that she has anybody fooled she must be incredibly deranged which is probably the only reason she can even enter a non-guilty plea. How do you live with yourself trying to justify your innocence? Accept your ignorance; take your consequences and this throat punch for good measure you selfish little... (insert the worst word you can think of here)


Also?  If she is for some twist of judgement found not guilty for whatever reason, I think the jury and judge should get in line for their throat punches as well.  

I mean, I gave you what - four facts..what's your take?  Can you explain to me how this is not a cut and dry case?


Today I joined @TruthfulMommy for her Thursday Throat Punch!

So absolutely horrifying.

I think you did a great job writing this post without ranting. I want to scream and scream about this selfish, wicked creature. I saw on TV this morning that the woman who drowned her 5 kids 10 years ago may be getting released.

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Really, how can you claim innocence after creating a scene like that?

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

Thanks Laura - I had to digress before it got out of hand.

Laurathomas61 said...

Understood. I am still fuming. There is no excuse or forgiveness for such a sin!

Amberr Meadows said...

WTF? This woman needs to be placed on death row. Throat punch, indeed.

Miss Donna said...

throat punch, ass kickin' AND then death row!

Laurathomas61 said...

Then she needs to relive the ass kickin over and over again in hell.

Deestarr7 said...

Wow, that is horrendous! I can't even imagine having those thoughts let alone acting on them. I Hope that she is brought to justice!

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

Seriously, go have lunch..then lose your mind? How is there a question?

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

AMEN - you are not kidding

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

I will be sure and follow this until there is a verdict - totally agreed

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

I was gonna mention an eye for an eye in this case but I digressed

CoffeeLovinMoM said...

I'm not sure how long proceedings will go but I will be following it to find out the outcome..

Why have her on suicide watch? I say, if she wants to kill herself, we shouldn't get in her way. In fact, they ought to give her a box of razor blades, a belt, some poison, and anything else that might give her "ideas."

Jen Piwtpitt said...

A throat punch is too good for her. There is nothing more vile than a mother who kills her own children. I'm with you - cut and dried case.

Mayor Gia said...

I don't think some people should be on "suicide watch." I think when some people are suicidal you should go, "Here's some rope and/or a bottle of pills. I'll check back in tomorrow." The problem pretty much takes care of itself, no?

CoffeeLovinMom said...

this one should be an eye for an eye

CoffeeLovinMom said...

You are right - the hearing is still going on - she's claiming she blacked out..
