    Post Parents killed 4-year-old gay son

    In messages to her boyfriend, Jessica Dutro expressed frustration with her young children, using a number of profanities and calling one "stupid."

    Her 7-year-old daughter upset her by falling asleep on top of the laundry the child was supposed to fold, one message said.

    “after an hour i go in there and her sweaty (expletive) is sleeping on top of the clothes,” Dutro wrote. “sleeping is one thing but to plop her dirty (expletive) on the clean clothes and sleep…”

    Later, she wrote to Canady that she “gave her lickins,” and all the laundry was done. “amazing right?” she wrote.

    Washington County jurors read Facebook messages between Jessica Dutro and Brian Canady on Friday, just before they were released for the weekend.

    Dutro, 25, is charged with murder, murder by abuse and second-degree assault in the death of her 4-year-old son, Zachary Dutro-Boggess. Canady pleaded guilty earlier this month to first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault in the boy’s death.

    Emergency crews responded Aug. 14, 2012, to the Tigard homeless shelter where Zachary was living. They took him to a Portland hospital, where doctors determined he was dying from abdominal trauma that caused tears in his bowel. He was taken off life support two days later.

    The 2012 Facebook messages shown in court contained some daily correspondence between Dutro and Canady while one of them was home with the children and the other at work.

    In one message, Dutro wrote that Zachary, then 3, was “facing the wall.”

    He’s going to be gay, she wrote. “he walks like it and talks like it ugh.” That made her mad, she wrote. Canady needed to “work on” the boy “big time,” she wrote.

    In legal arguments outside the presence of the jury, prosecutor Megan Johnson said the message established Dutro’s motive for inflicting on Zachary a pattern of torture and abuse. Authorities say Dutro assaulted three of her children, but Zachary received the brunt of the violence.

    Dutro wrote in another message that Zachary’s younger brother, then 2, was “facing the wall” because he had had an accident in his pants.

    Later messages indicated he’d been standing against the wall for two hours. She told Canady she would have kept the child in his soiled pants, but she had her 7-year-old daughter change him so he wouldn’t stink.

    Trial continues Tuesday, when the state is expected to wrap up its case.

    Some people should NEVER become parents. They should get the same treatment they applied to the children and then sentenced to prison for life and they should be required to have surgery to prevent them from having more children. It makes me so angry to hear of the abuse innocent children suffer at the hands of the parents---the very same people that should be loving and protecting them. Studies have suggested that abusive parents were abused also. I have dedicated my life to saving children and can not tolerate child abuse in any way. So shameful and sad. I often wonder why some of the relatives are silent and do not report these abusive parents.

    People can change though, the prison system is meant for rehabilitation.
