Cheryn Smilen who Starved 30 Cats Entrusted to Care for the Elderly

Woman who starved to death 28 cats out on bond caring for her 92 year old mother
MIAMI DADE COURT CASE: F-18-003300
Cheryn Smilen of Sunny Isles Beach Florida is the woman who murdered 28 cats by starving them to death. She is out on bail awaiting trail and is currently at home caring for her 92 year old mother. Trial has been set for June 4, 2018. We can rest assured that in the event she is found guilty, or takes a plea, THEN her attorney will use as her defense the argument of, who will care for her mother if she is sent to jail???
Should a woman who neglected 30+ cats, abandoning them to a cruel, prolonged and agonizing death by starvation in a rented efficiency, be allowed to care for an elderly 92 year old woman?? Would you be willing to trust her to care for your elderly mother?
This is outrage! In this country you are innocent until proven guilty, so while she is out on bond she can do as she pleases so long as she complies with the terms of her release. Let's hope she doesn't starve her mother to death as well. Most mass killers initially start with animals and then eventually graduate to people. She must be kept away from both people and animals.
According to this blog several people claim that Cheryn told them in the past that her mother had accused Cheryn of trying to poison her a well. Taking into consideration how Cheryn allowed these cats to starve to death, then, now when we think of it, perhaps her 92 year old mother wasn't crazy when she made that accusation against her own daughter!
