Paperback. Charged with the murder of her own child - loving mother or twisted killer? Fact - Priscilla and Steve Phillips adopt a Korean baby. Shortly afterwards little Tia begins developing strange symptoms. In and out of the hospital for months, she finally succumbs. Cause of death: unknown. Fact - The Phillipses adopt a second Korean infant named Mindy. Once again the same symptoms develop. Near death, the child is taken to intensive care, away from any interaction with her mother. The child recovers. Fact - Mindy is removed from the Phillipses' home. Months later she is adopted by a new couple. After a few weeks in her new home, she falls ill once again. As far as anyone knew, Priscilla Phillips was the perfect mother. A pillar of her church, a social worker, a devoted wife, and a loving mother of two sons of her own. Priscilla lavished endless love and attention on little Tia...and later on her sister, Mindy. To this day she claims total innocence of wrongdoing. Yet she was arrested and tried for murder. Was she a mother who literally loved her children to death? A woman so desperate to be needed that she'd take any risk, pay any price? Here is her incredible true story. With Epilogue. 333pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp., sl. sunned covers with small crease across corner of lower cover. Vg.
