12, Stomps on Baby 
   "I loved him. I didn't mean to hurt him, but he was crying, hollering and bothering me. I was mad at him. I jumped on him, up and down, with my shoes on. Then he stopped crying and hollering because he could not any more. He just laid there." In this manner, 12-year-old Consuela Sanchez of Lordsburg, N. M., above, reputedly confessed how she caused the death of her two-year-old nephew, Manuel Rodrigues of El Paso, Tex., who died shortly after reaching a hospital. El Paso county juvenille authorities ordered Consuela to a reform school.
