Millionaire Durst Cleared in Texas Death

Durst admitted that he killed the victim, and disposed of his body by cutting it up and dumping it in Galveston Bay.

The article says he still faces a bail-jumping count for fleeing following his murder charge, and that could carry a sentence of two to 10 years if he is convicted. It also said jurors considered only a murder charge, not lesser charges in addition such as manslaughter. And I'm wondering, would one of those lesser charges have been "abuse of a corpse" ?

John Rosemund dealt with a question about an 18-month old making the transition from crib to toddler bed in this week's column.

Which got me to thinking. I can't remember when Critter or Tigger made the move from crib to bed. I know for certain that Critter was still in diapers, from my vivid memories of the Desenex body paint.

He also had a low-stress approach to the toddler game of food dropping.
