A murderous, mentally unstable, Pennsylvanian parent has been convicted of third-degree murder, after she zapped the life out of her three-year-old baby girl.


Isabel Godfrey met her untimely death when her mother decided to end her life. Thirty-three years old Regina Lester was charged with a twenty to a forty-year jail term.


Regina openly expressed that she had committed the killing, but was under some influence. The York Daily Record reported that before the tragic incident occurred, the accused was high on marijuana. In her words:

“I wasn't myself; I don't remember anything. I blacked out.”

Hitherto, the lady's diagnosis revealed multiple mental issues, such as bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, and possible schizophrenia.


In her defense, lawyer, Suzanne Smith mentioned that her client (Regina Lester) was under medications, and is repentant, for the grievous deeds. Smith told journalists that:

“Everyday, she lives with, ‘No more daughter.’”

The details provided by the Senior Deputy Prosecutor, Kara Bowser, in court declared that, Lester was not herself during the time of the murder, and that she acted based on the drugs in her system.


Following the autopsy reports from medical operatives, Isabel was said to have suffered a series of blunt force trauma which ultimately led to her death. The toddler's body bore teeth marks, which meant that she secured injuries from bites. The dead body also showed signs of asphyxia and a spinal injury.

Reports from 21 confirmed that the mother ran around with no clothes on, hugging a tree after she took her daughter's life. The neighbors were in fear, as the killer-mom ran around with words like, “I need to kill your kids.” She even went on to defend her actions, by saying,

“I'm sorry- I didn't mean to do it. You understand I had to get the darkness out of her. I’m sorry”.


Another testimony from a neighbor, who was also the little girl's baby sitter, stated that he tried to resuscitate Isabel via CPR, but failed to, then he struggled to keep the offender hostage before the police arrived.

Her therapist, Dr. Rotenberg, corroborated the story of her lawyer. He claimed that the substance intake was responsible, but that his patient had severe mental health issues, which she battled. She suffered from ‘toxic psychosis.’
