Girl dies on cold walk; dad charged with murder

Postby Snakes Gould » Fri Jan 02, 2009 12:00 am

TWIN FALLS, Idaho - The father of an 11-year-old girl who died, likely of hypothermia, after trying to walk 10 miles in the snow on Christmas Day has been charged with second-degree murder and felony injury to a child.

Robert Aragon, 55, of Jerome, made an initial appearance Monday in 5th District Court, where Judge Mark Ingram appointed a public defender for him. The judge denied Aragon's request to lower his $500,000 bond. He was being held in the Blaine County Jail.

i just wanted to hear some thoughts about this. while this was a TERRIBLE decision by the father, how can you possibly charge him with murder and life in prison? there was absolutely no intent.

Wow.

Is sending someone who doesn't know better to certain death, murder?
Probably.

If the girl was bundled up (gloves, hat etc), I don't see any charge except for the dad being a moron.

Yeah that's pretty far actually...kind of a brutal walk in any weather for a little kid. As a dad, you're supposed to know what's best for your kid. I fail to see how a 10 mile hike in the snow is good for her. Just stay home and say "Sorry, we'll catch up with you later."

this is why people should have to pass some sort of IQ/psychological test before they are allowed to have children.

Truth is people more than likely do that up north in the country and such and nothing happens.
But now that something happens, this dad's life is ruined, I feel sorry for him.
But he honestly should of given her some sweat pants or something.

I agree I really don't think he should go to jail for murder. I'm really not sure what kind of punishment would fit the crime here. Obviously he made an incredibly stupid decision but I actually feel pretty bad for him. I don't think going to jail is going to make him any smarter or deter other dumb people from being dumb.
