IBERIA - Three days after an Iberia woman tried to kill her baby, neighbors want to know why she did it. And they have good reason to know.

On Wednesday, authorities responded to a residential fire call on Lombar Street in Iberia. They later determined the small fire was intentionally set by Christina White on her six-month old son's blanket. Residents say they can't believe something like this would ever happen.

"I didn't think she would ever do anything like this. She, ya know, she used to come over here all the time with her little kids, talked and everything, and I didn't think she would do it," said neighbor, David Ponder.

Ponder lives directly next door to White. He says when he first heard all the commotion on Wednesday, he thought her whole house was on fire. But when he went to see what happened, he says he was wrong.

"It burnt the baby crib, a little piece of the carpet, a little bit of the wall, and that was it," said Ponder.

According to Ponder and reports, White lit her son's blanket on fire and then left the room. She later returned to her son's bedroom once he stopped crying and screaming. Ponder says White needs to pay.

"For the stuff that she did, it was wrong, it was just totally wrong," said Ponder.

Ponder also says he never would have expected something like this in a town like Iberia, especially right next door.

"This part of town is quiet. Ya know everybody looks out for everybody here and I don't know, it was weird when that happened," said Ponder.

And police agree. They can't believe this happened in Iberia either.

"I mean it's just a sad, sad situation, ya know it's really been hard on this town. I mean we haven't had anything like this occur around here, to my knowledge, ever," said Andy Long, Iberia Police Chief.

For now, neighbors like Ponder want justice.

"I just hope she gets what she deserves and honest to God I hope she can get the death (penalty) because this little baby didn't deserve it," said Ponder.

From what authorities are telling us, White's son is still in critical condition at University Hospital in Columbia. According to the neighbor KOMU spoke with, the hospital is taking it hour by hour with the six-month old. As for White, she's charged with one count of first degree arson and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Things like this are horrible.  Some people would love to have another baby and others just try to think of ways to get rid of the ones they were blessed with.  Like wife and myself would like to have another but can't and would love to have another one.  Then you have people who have them and for some reason decide they don't want them.  Whether they need help due to post pardum or they just accidently got pregnant they decide to kill the poor baby or worse scar it mentally and physically for life.  I will never understand why people won't get help or just give the poor kid to someone who will love it. 
If anybody knows MAYNARDS given name please PM me with it.  I will not tell who tells me!

My God...

We can't met out adequate justice for something this horrible.

People of faith however know that her ultimate fate will be worse than that babies in the end.

Did this woman have other kids?

Yes she did have other kids. I think she had just recently gotten these kids back from her grandmother, and then she did this.

I was reading that they are charging her with 1st degree arson and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, since she admitted to trying to kill her baby wouldn't attempted murder be a fitting charge.  I read this and was in tears.  I couldn't imagine someone doing something like that to a child.  So cruel. Many prayers to the little one and hopes that everything turns out o.k. for him.

There are a few Christina White's around here. She is not the one who was from Crocker. In fact  I heard she is originally from Alabama.

I could add my 2 cents of what she should have done to her, but what Im curious about is the story i read online was worded like her sister was there also. If I remember right she said that her sister had already talked of not wanting her baby. Didn't anybody think maybe to keep an eye on her or turn her in to a mental facility to have her evaluated? It could have just been the way it was worded, but if her sister knew she was going to do it she should be charged as well.

OK we aren't rich by no means. Live paycheck to paycheck However...

If you don't want your babies... bring them to my house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hell I would find a way to raise them; anything is better than what they are getting now!

I am so sick of people doing this to their children and babies! If you don't want them then give them to someone who does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or stop having them! There is birth control out there!

OK we need a thread on here for confidentially give your baby to someone who cares thread!!!!

Iberia mother sets baby on fire

 
 
By Mallory McGowin
Posted: Monday, July 16, 2007 at 4:12 PM

The Miller County mother who confessed to setting her baby on fire appeared before Miller County Judge Ken Oswald Monday.  At this time, Christina L. White's baby is still in critical condition at University Hospital in Colombia.  KRCG's Mallory Mcgowin has worked on the story since it developed and has the latest information.

Christina L. White came before Judge Oswald around 11:15 Monday morning.  White cried as the judge read the four felony charges she now faces, first degree arson and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

We made phone calls throughout the day Monday to learn more about this family's situation.  We wanted to get details about alleged events that happened within the family in the weeks prior to the fire Wednesday at 432 Lombar Street.  Also, we wanted to know what the plans are for Christina White's other children who are now in protective custody.  To do that, we contacted the Missouri Department of Social Service offices in Eldon, Camden County, and Jefferson City.  We also called Miller County Juvenile authorities.

Because juveniles are involved and the investigation is ongoing, there is little information authorities can tell us.  But Tammy Walden, the Chief Juvenile Officer for the 26th District, which includes Miller County, did talk to me by phone about what process the Juvenile Court follows.

She told me that within 24 hours of the children being taken into protective custody, a judge must sign a court order to maintain that placement.  Then, within 72 hours, the children are entitled to a protective custody hearing in front of a judge.  That hearing took place Monday morning.

"Following that, within 60 days, allegations and the petition must be ajudicated in court. So it moves quickly," says Walden.

Authorities who arrived at the scene of this Iberia house fire first thought it was set by one of the other kids there.  Christina White's children were taken from her care then because authorities suspected there was a lack of supervision in the house.

But the probable cause statement tells us White later confessed to setting the fire.  She told them she used a cigarette lighter to set the blanket covering her six-month-old son on fire as he slept in his crib.  She said she was under stress and did want her son to die.

White will appear in court again Wednesday.  She is applying for a public defender and will learn then if she qualifies.

Iberia Mom Gets Attorney 
 
TUSCUMBIA - One week after an Iberia mother allegedly set fire to her baby's blanket, she makes her second court appearance Wednesday.

University Hospital officials say Christina White's 6-month old son's condition has not changed since he first arrived at the hospital last week.

Wednesday, Christina White learned she faces a preliminary hearing date on Aug. 29.

The court also set her bond at $250,000. Miller County Sheriff Bill Abbott had previously requested White be held without bond.

Christina White is charged with four separate felony counts: One count of arson, which includes the harm she did to her son.

The other three counts are for endangering the welfare of a child.

Two of those counts are for her other two children, and the third count is for another child who happened to be in the house at the time of the fire. In all, four children were in the house at the time of the fire.

Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom as Christina White did not have representation at the time.

She does now have a public defender working for her, after she requested one on Monday.

If she admitted to wanting that poor baby dead, why isn't she being charged with attempted murder?  I don't get it.

I hope she is prepared for her judgement
