When Mayra Rosales was the heaviest woman in the world, weighing in a 1,039 pounds, she was also tried for murder.
She had taken responsibilities for the death of her 2-year-old nephew, Eliseo.
Mayra claimed that she slipped while trying to pick him put and that it resulted in life threatening injuries.
Mayra was arrested but was too large to go to jail, as she hadn’t been able to leave her bedroom for five years.
Later, Mayra confessed again, this time saying that she was covering up for her sister who was abusing her children.
Jamie, Mayra’s sister, was apprehended and given a sentence of 15 years in prison.
Mayra lost 800 pounds so that she would be able to care for Jaime’s children.
