It's time to get to the bottom of things on 'The Steve Wilkos Show' (weekdays, syndicated). On the latest episode, host Wilkos talks to a family who were accused of causing the death of a 7-week-old infant. Mother Michelle, father Larry, and the two grandparents of the kid -- they were all accused, all pleaded guilty, and all were sentenced to jail time.
We apologize for sharing these horrifying details. ... But the 7-week-old son in question died after suffering from a broken collarbone, broken arm, and bruises to the face, neck, and brain. His family came up with a completely implausible cover story that involved their son being dragged from their car and being beaten to death by cops. Yes. Because that's the sort of thing that policemen do all the time -- they just randomly attack infant babies.
In the end, father Larry was found guilty of the murder -- by Steve Wilkos, at least. He failed a lie detector test, and what's worse, he failed it three times in a row. Larry was lying when he said he didn't physically abuse his son. And he was lying when he said that he didn't cause the death of his son.
Still, even after all of this, Larry tried to defend himself. "I didn't do nothin'," he said. Yeah, Larry. No one believes you.
