|Mother of the year. Brittany Pilkington is facing a capital case for the death of her three children. The defense claims mental issues and spousal abuse as the reason.|
The residents of the city of Bellefontaine, Ohio are shocked. To hear that a woman killed three of her children because according to the junk food media, she was jealous of her husband's close relationship to them, is beyond belief.
This woman is being held on a $1 million get out of jail free card. She is innocent until proven guilty.
Brittany Pilkington, 23, is charged with three counts of capital murder. These charges could land her in the gas house.
Right now, her attorneys are going to try to say that "she flipped". The defense is going to line up the fact that she has mental issues and the intelligence of a pre-teen. I am peeping out the social media and she's kind of loony.
Many in the law have sensed that the danger was there. Logan County Family Services have done routine checks on Pilkington and her kids. She was the mother of four children. When her first child died because of unknown circumstances, the law ordered mandatory checks on the family.
In July 2014, she lost her 3-month-old son, Niall. In April of this year, her 4-year-old son, Gavin, would die. Authorities were still trying to determine the cause of Niall and Gavin’s death at the time of Noah’s passing.

Her motive? According to Brittany, she killed the boys because her husband was giving them more attention than he was their 3-year-old daughter, Hailey.
“In her mind she was protecting her daughter from being not as loved as the boys were by their father,” said Logan County prosecutor William Goslee.
Noah and Hailey had only been back with the couple for a month, having been in the custody of Logan County Children’s Services shortly after the death of Gavin.
“Why would you give them back after a little boy just died and when you’re in the middle of an investigation?” asked Brittany’s uncle. The answer to that is the fact that a coroner had just concluded Gavin’s and Niall’s deaths weren’t suspicious.
Brittany Pilkington was arrested and charged with three counts of murder and is being held in the Logan County jail. Her daughter is back in the custody of Logan County Children’s Services.
According to the Colubus Dispatch, Brittany married her husband in March 2010 when she was 18 and he was 38. Her husband has four spare children from previous marriages who also do not live with him.
