A Wyoming babysitter has been accused of beating and killing a 5-year-old girl.
Police said 51-year-old Cheri Marler faces charges of first degree murder and child abuse. She has been held in a Wyoming jail without bond.
“In terms of child abuse, this was for me, personally – this was one of the hardest ones I’ve ever worked in,” said Chief Mike Kahre with the Kemmerer Police Department.
He said officers responded to a 911 call around 3:40 p.m. on Friday, November 25. They said Marler told dispatch that the girl, Annabelle, fell down the stairs and was not breathing.
“She pretty much stuck to the baby had fallen down the stairs, but that just wasn’t consistent with some of the things in the home, and the appearance of Annabelle,” Chief Kahre said.
Info in the affidavit gave details of what responding officers saw.
“The color of the child was somewhat dark and pale,” one officer reported. “The left side of the child’s face was completely bruised and appeared to have old bruising under new bruising.”
Crews eventually transported the young girl be medical helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, where she died Saturday morning.
Annabelle’s mom, Kayla Kartchner, spoke to 2News about what she saw at the hospital.
“I knew I wasn’t going to have my little girl back,” she said. “She wasn’t going to make it. They tried everything they could. She was already brain dead by the time she got to the hospital.”
According to the affidavit, doctors found several injuries, “which included multiple rib injuries, a punctured lung, several head injuries (old and new), a broken back, many lacerations, scrapes and countless bruises on the entire body of the child.”
Police said Marler had been watching Annabelle and her sister for several months. The mom may have been escaping a domestic abuse situation, according to the affidavit. Police said Marler eventually admitted to slapping and hitting the child.
“I asked her to demonstrate how she did it, and she did take her hands in a clapping motion and slapped them together,” said Chief Kahre. “She said it was anywhere between 5 and 10 times, and said it could have been more times.”
Annabelle’s mom, Kayla, said she was heartbroken. She said Annabelle loved unicorns and the color, pink. She wanted to be a firefighter when she grew up.
“She was very sweet, even when she was sick. She was still trying to be happy and playful. She had a little sister who was just 4-years-old, and her little sister is just so confused on everything,” Kartchner said.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family with funeral expenses.
According to the page, “Her mama was at work when she got this devastating call. We are raising the money for Belle’s funeral services! Please anything helps.”
Major Pro-Life Victory: Supreme Court upholds Texas law stopping abortions
A baby’s heartbeat can be detected by transvaginal ultrasound as early as 3 to 4 weeks after conception, or 5 to 6 weeks after the first day of the last menstrual period. This early embryonic heartbeat is fast, often about 160-180 beats per minutes, twice as fast as us adults’!
The United States Supreme Court has ruled on a life-giving decision that will potentially save thousands of unborn babies in Texas.
By a 5-4 vote, the Court said Texas’ law prohibiting abortions once a medical professional detects a heartbeat will stand. Read the full story from American Family News here.
Advocates for killing babies had filed an emergency appeal asking the Court to block enforcement of the law that went into effect yesterday. Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberal members of the Court to keep abortions going in Texas.
The law, SB8, was passed by the Texas legislature and signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott on May 19.
This is a huge day for the pro-life movement and I ask you to join me in thanking God for this wonderful victory.
Sincerely, Tim Wildmon, President American Family Association

Trump’s Efforts To Fight Sex Trafficking
Made An Incredible Impact!
Former President Donald Trump did an amazing job over the last four years, saving the lives of many Children and young women.
Hold on just a few extra minutes, there is much more to this story that has been ignored, if not covered up by the liberal media. Suddenly we are hearing about states lowering consent age to 14 or 16-years-of-age. Quiet obviously it was no accident that the work of Senator Nancy Schaefer, 50th District of Georgia, was totally ignored by Obama and Biden. The work I am speaking of is Senator Nancy Schaefer’s “THE CORRUPT BUSINESS OF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES” which was completed November 16, 2007, and there was more than one reason they ignored it.
Brothers Involved in Baby Body Parts Trafficking Arrested by ICE
” ….including $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. As a result, after reaching out to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for asylum, the Isaias’ were granted expedited immigration into the U.S. Clinton’s State Department then rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite them to face justice.”
My post on January 30, 2016 had a dead link, and I already knew this was one I enjoyed, because Senator John McCain got so upset with Mark Greenberg and CPS, that he walked out of the bipartisan congressional investigation. The article led the reader to believe that possibly 10 – 30 Children were “missing”, when the link was fixed that number had grown to 90,000+ Children.
Lawmakers say Obama administration delivered 90,000 immigrant children to predators.. Forget the lies!!!! Not one name on a U.S. Border Patrol or I.C.E. signed and sealed document with supporting DNA proof of proper FAMILIA ancestry, has been shown as documented proof of return of Child to proper family. R.S.
It is all too obvious, this evil plan and plot that was a part of an administration for 2 too many terms, now THERE is Obama’s Legacy, which is a huge part of Biden’s Legacy, and it is all too easy to see where and why all the lies and voter fraud was hatched as an evil #AntiAmerica, #AntiChild PLAN and PLOT.
Executive Order on Strengthening the Child Welfare System for America’s Children by President Trump
Jaco Booyens, the founder of SHAREtogether, revealed that the former President made a big impact during his presidency. President Trump was determined to break trafficking rings.
In his interview with NTD, Booyens talked about the most recent trafficking bust in California, police officers arrested 64 people and rescued two women in Riverside County.
According to information obtained from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, these arrests are part of Operation Reclaim and Rebuild. It is an annual operation that covers large areas of the nation. The department revealed that the sting “ran for four consecutive days before concluding on January 28, 2021.”
“It’s a big orchestration, to execute a sting or a bust, like what we’ve just seen in California, and it takes months and months of planning and funding,” Booyens said. “And that’s why it’s very important for both local and federal, local, state, and federal government to support the fight against sex trafficking, because you cannot do it on your own.”
These operations should have standing in court and this requires a different approach. The judicial system works with the police in order to shut down these ill practices.
Booyens adds that before Trump “we’ve never had an office in the White House designated and dedicated to fighting sex trafficking. No former president in the history of this country has used his or her platform to denounce the exploitation of children and then appropriate funding. So we’ve seen an incredible impact over the last four years, particularly towards the support for law enforcement”.
Regular police officers are not trained to take part in sting operations. The process requires special training, resources and effort.
“We’ve seen a tremendous rise in the apprehension, the arrest of perpetrators and rescue of victims under the Trump administration, no question about it,” Booyens said. “In these cases that you’re seeing now such as California, and you’ll see some others coming out soon, they’ve been 9, 10 months in the making under the Trump administration—in that mechanism of funding law enforcement appropriately, having special task forces.”
“Whether those policies and systems that were put in place will remain or not, we don’t know,” said Booyens.
“Under the Trump administration, we saw a massive morale lift. There was a morale lift within the nonprofits, our organization and the other 170 that we’re connected with, and there was a general morale boost. We have support from the White House now. We actually now can see law enforcement departments talk to one another.”
The Trump administration was the first to support this type of interdepartmental communication.
“For instance, when a child is tracked in let’s say, Dallas, Texas, that pimp or predator doesn’t keep that child in Dallas, Texas.” Booyens said. “Now let’s say we find her in Nevada. You now are asking the Dallas Police Department to talk to the Nevada police department and that historically has not happened.
“We saw that kind of an inter-department communication line be open because of President Trump, and then, of course, the other people in that administration who made trafficking a focus.”
Our society struggles with several threats at the moment. Some people promote this problem and kids spend too much time at home.
“There is a large sector of our society, let’s just be real, that don’t see a problem with sexualizing children, with indoctrinating children in kindergarten with certain conditions and mindsets about sex and consent,” Booyens said.
“We’ve got multiple states in this country at the moment trying to lower their age of consent to 14, some have lowered it to 16. Laws in those states are now in direct contradiction to statutory rape or in direct contradiction to the anti-sex-trafficking law in that state which says a child 17 and under is a victim.”
“Parents and educators have to teach children how to recognize predators. We should get involved in their online activities. Predators are everywhere, most particularly.. in Washington D.C…”
For a Parent, it should never be one of THEM times
As always… well, most days.. I looked at our stats.
Today I came across something that I didn’t recognize, and I came very close to shutting the computer down right then and there.
It was just a feeling that part of me wishes I would have heeded… (Jacob) However, THAT is not the man that is sitting here.
My mind has already seen Frank when we were little boys, our Father, our GrandMother, and her two sisters who are our Aunts… in flash-backs probably fifty times already, since looking up the post I didn’t recognize… and I have Thanked Our Dear Mighty GOD already for Our Father, Our GrandMother, and Our Aunts. (Jacob)
From the time we were little boys, if Our Father was not with us, Our GrandMother and her older and younger Sisters, who are Our Aunts, would NOT let us be around any older boys or men by ourselves, and that includes our uncles on that side of the family, except for Uncle Frank who was Our Aunt Ida’s husband. This is Our UnCivilized side. (Jacob)
You might wonder why I included the last paragraph in this, while it should be quiet obvious, I don’t mind enlightening everyone, since so many want to keep this a dark secret.
A major percentage of the Children we grew up with were victims of sexual abuse. I hope no one of you jump to the conclusion that I have no proof of this fact. In 1969, Vincent De Francis published the results of his study of sexual abuse of children, and in it he stated that the findings strongly point to the probability of an enormous national incidence many times larger than the reported incidence of physical abuse of children. I found this in “Child Protection History In America” from the ABA.
At this time I will say that the numbers that are listed say that in 1990, 27% of the abused Children was physically abused, which would mean that between 50 – 75% of the abused Children was sexually abused. HOWEVER, I am more than glad to point out that none of these numbers can be trusted, since these state that about 5 Children die per day due to abuse, although that number is above 10, and most probably as high as 13, and most probably 15 Children a day die from abuse. *Government Accountability Office
A mother and father from Pasadena drove to an office building in Angleton Thursday for a closed-door parole hearing on one of Houston’s most notorious killers.
Their son, a 13 year-old boy named Stanton Dreymala, may not be remembered by many people in the Houston area, but what happened to him is seared in the collective memory of a generation of Houstonians. He was one of at least 28 boys and young men lured to a horrifying death in what became known as the Houston mass murders. “He was just a normal 13 year-old,” said his mother, Elaine Dreymala. “He went to school, he rode his bike, he mowed lawns for his spending money.”
Between 1971 and 1973, a man named Dean Corrl recruited two teenaged accomplices – David Brooks and Elmer Wayne Henley – to entice other youngsters to his homes, where they were drugged, raped and sexually tortured – sometimes for days – before they were murdered. Some of the terrified victims were forced to write notes telling their mothers they were leaving town shortly before they were killed.
