Bad Father Of The Year Award Goes To....

19-year old Joshua Royce Mauldin was blessed with a baby girl - born only two months ago. What a lucky man he is and yet for reasons one can only dream of (in their worst nightmares) Daddy Mauldin put his 2-month old baby girl into a microwave oven in an Arkansas motel.

The baby girl sustained burns on her face and left hand. She was hospitalized early Thursday and yesterday underwent a second skin graft performed by University of Texas Medical Branch physicians at Galveston's Shriners Burns Hospital.

This despicable monster faces indictment for felony injury to a child, which carries a maximum sentence of from five to 99 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000... injury to a child? I wonder what Joshua Royce Mauldin was thinking as he placed his baby daughter in the microwave oven - which setting did he chose and how many minutes did he *time* his little girl to be "injured"?

People do not microwave their children in order to "injure" them. The only other such "microwave injury" case I could find was about the Ohio murder suspect, China Arnold, who killed her month old baby, Paris Talley, in a microwave oven in August 2005.

Daddy Mauldin needs to be put on trial for attempted murder.


  1. You are so right!! He needs to be put on trial for Attempted Murder. Who could do such a thing. I almost threw up the first time I heard it on the news.

  2. Amanda, I share your feelings! Let's hope we see this man adequately punished for his heinous acts!
