Ohio Man Found Guilty Of Putting Children In Trash

A prosecutor's assistant says an Ohio man accused of putting two children in a trash bin has been found guilty of attempted murder and other counts.

An executive assistant to Montgomery County Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. said Tuesday that Tommie Johnson Jr. pleaded no contest Monday to attempted murder, kidnapping, domestic violence and tampering with evidence.

Authorities say Johnson put the 8-month-old boy and 2-year-old girl in the trash after a dispute with their mother. Police say two electricians rescued the thirsty, hungry children July 27 after they had been in the bin about 13 hours.

The assistant says a judge found the 39-year-old Johnson guilty on all counts and will sentence him April 28.

    He put his own precious babies in the trash. Do you really think its shocking there were no pictures of these little ones? The kids are more than likely in the foster system while Mom is being evualuated and put on some type of couseling and program to complete before getting her kids back. If she does not comply within a certain amount of (very reasonable time), the parents rights will be terminated. Kids are safe for now I suspect.

    Here's a quote that I found fascinating: "...the children's mother could not provide a picture of the children, making the search more difficult." Does this sound like any parents you know? Sounds more like she had "tax credits" instead of "children".
