Veronica T. Herrera
Crime: Child Abuse, Murder

In April 2013, Veronica T. Herrera of Homedale, Idaho, pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Her victim was her 2-year-old daughter, Nakita.

According to Veronica T. Herrera, 29, little Nakita was fatally injured during potty training on August 15, 2012.

Wow. I for one did not realize how dangerous potty training could be. According to Veronica T. Herrera, her toddler jumped off the potty chair and hit her head on a heater. A few hours later, on August 16, little Nakita was dead.

Unlike every rational person on the planet who would take the injured girl to hospital, Veronica T. Herrera put her little girl in a playpen and told her 9-year-old son to watch her. She herself had to leave to take some of her other children to their auntie’s home in Caldwell.

I cannot imagine leaving a child to look after an injured baby, but that’s what Veronica T. Herrera did.

According to this monstrous mother, she phoned her son later to ask how Nakita was doing. The boy told her she was sleeping.

Veronica T. Herrera did not bother to return home until later that night and by that time little Nakita wasn’t breathing. Apparently that was when she noticed her baby had a big bump on her wee head.

Truth be told, I can’t say this was a potty training accident. Nobody can say this was a potty training accident because, unlike every rational person on the planet, Veronica T. Herrera did not phone 911 to summon some kind of help for her baby who wasn’t breathing.

Nope, at this point Veronica T. Herrera panicked. She “freaked out”. I guess she realized little Nakita was beyond help and was now a problematic corpse.

NakitaThe panic, according to Veronica T. Herrera, wasn’t for the possibility she would be charged in the child’s death. Oh no, the panic was for the possibility she’d lose custody of her 4 other children. Riiight. Cuz she’s such a good and devoted mother!

So what did the hellbitch do with the inconvenient corpse? She put little Nakita’s body in the back of her minivan that night. In the morning Veronica T. Herrera walked to the store to buy lighter fluid.

Yeah, you know what’s coming.

The monstrous mother put her baby girl’s body in a burn barrel in the back yard and set it on fire. She then got her other children to put garbage in the barrel to keep the fire going. That’s right — she recruited her other children to help her burn her baby’s body.

Veronica T. Herrera consoled herself that she didn’t think the children realized their baby sister was in the barrel, except maybe the 9-year-old boy. I can’t imagine how it awful it was for that poor kid.

By the next morning Veronica T. Herrera realized that the body was still recognizable so off to the store she went again to buy more lighter fluid.

As this hellbitch burned her baby’s corpse along with the trash, she also added Nakita’s belongings to the flames.

So where was Nakita’s daddy while this was going on? He had been out of town heroically fighting wild fires. Being a good father, he called every day to ask how his daughter was. And every day his girlfriend Veronica would lie and say the baby was at her parents’ house.

The trouble with Veronica T. Herrera’s horrific plan to escape the consequences of her actions was the fact her boyfriend wasn’t going to be gone forever. He did return on August 18, 2012, and he wanted to see his daughter.

The jig was well and truly up. The hellbitch asked him to drive her to her parents’ house and to take her other kids to the fair. He must have wondered what was up, but he was soon to find out.

At her parents’ house, Veronica T. Herrera confessed to them what she’d done. Her parents drove her to the Nampa Police Department.

Herrera HouseThe crying hellbitch walked up to an officer and told him she’d done something bad, that her child was hurt and that she’d made it worse. Damn straight she made it worse!

Because little to nothing was left of little Nakita, nobody could determine absolutely what had happened to her. All that was left was Veronica T. Herrera’s ridiculous tale of the potty training accident.

An Owyhee County grand jury was convened and they found that Veronica T. Herrera, “with the intentional application of torture,” intentionally inflicted “extreme and prolonged pain,” by “inflicting repeated acts of blunt force trauma upon (Nakita) by means of physical force … emotional abuse, and/or lack of physical and/or medical care, which caused bruising, pain, burns, broken bones, and injuries,” that led to the little girl’s death.

Interestingly, the grand jury also determined that the abuse that ultimately killed Nakita occurred between July 1 and August 16, 2012. I wonder what testimony they heard to come to that conclusion.

It sure doesn’t sound like grand jury believed the potty training story. I don’t believe it myself.

Veronica T. Herrera was facing charges of 1st-degree murder, as well as 4 counts of felony injury to a child — for involving her children aged 12, 9, 8 and 3, help her burn the body. The hellbitch was also charged with destroying, altering or concealing the body of Nakita.

At first Veronica T. Herrera pled not guilty to the charges, but on April 11, 2013 she pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter. She also pled guilty to failure to report a death, destroying evidence, and 3 counts of injury to a child.

Veronica T. Herrera, the murderous mom, will be sentenced on July 25. The Owyhee County Prosecutor Doug Emery is seeking a sentence of 15 to 40 years in prison.

I truly hope the children are now leading safe, happy and secure lives. And I hope their mother never reenters their lives at any point.

Veronica T. Herrera once told a police detective that God will never forgive her. Who can?

RIP, little Nakita.

    Poor little darling Nakita, she was so cute and adorable and didn’t deserve to be disposed of like trash. I’m glad her daddy loved her, and probably her siblings loved her too. It’s nothing short of criminal that she and her siblings were saddled with such a half wit f**ktard of a mother. Monsters like her should not be allowed to reproduce, or at the very least should not be allowed to have custody. Getting her children to help her burn a body — that’s enough for nightmares the rest of their lives!

    What a disgusting twat, not only did she kill that beautiful baby girl, she had to abuse the other children, by involving them in the destruction of little nakita’s body. Who the fuck would do that, its obvious the child never fell of her potty, otherwise she would have sought help straightaway, no something more happened to this baby girl, thats why this cunt did what she did. I hope her arse gets a good ole whipping in jail. And 15-40yrs is fuckall, this piece of pig shit should never see the light of day and freedom again, horrible bastard.

    I am so glad the bitch’s parents were decent folk who turned their daughter in. What surprises me is this stupid bitch arrived pretty much intact at the police station. If I were her dad and she told me she burned up my grandbaby’s body FOR WHATEVER REASON I’d be dropkicking her ass all over the house first. Yeah, I’d be “cunt punting” her all the way to the police station. Even if I believed her sorry ass story about the baby diving off the potty and bumping her head. I guess her parents are more decent folk than I am.

    Veronica here is afraid of the wrath of god, eh? She should be more afraid of the wrath of her fellow inmates and society at large. Baby burning is frowned upon a whole lot, especially when it’s probably to cover up the murder. I hope this babe suffers long and has nightmares every night like her surviving kids probably have.

    Poor little baby. This woman deserves to never leave prison again.

    I think moodymagic is off her meds. Not that I disagree with her.

    • Bengalpuss says:

      It is funny though when moody lets rip.

      • bulldoggy says:

        I’m guessing we’ve discovered the source of the “moody” portion of her handle. Now what is the “magic” portion all about? Hmmmm.

        • Bengalpuss says:

          Hmmm, it would be great bulldoggy, if moody, could magic these beastly bastards a horrible disease, or make their lives utterly miserable wouldn’t it, but now we know that the moody moniker means.

  8. awesomeblossom says:

    This crazy bitch is afraid god will never forgive her because she knows she did the unforgivable. She murdered her baby and then burned the evidence. It’s a shame she wasn’t sent to prison for murder. I hope she gets the max and winds up disposed of in the prison’s furnace when she dies.
