A woman accused of killing her two-year-old nephew may have found a strange way to avoid jail ... by being too fat:
Mayra Lizbeth Rosales, from La Jola, Texas, is bedridden and weighs nearly 1,000lbs. But she cannot get through her front door to be taken to jail and, later, court. [...]
The morbidly obese woman has since been photographed and finger-printed at home but released on a "personal recognizance bond" because of the logistics problem.
The local sheriff at Hidalgo County, Lupe Trevino, says it would be impossible to keep her in jail pending her trial because she needs extensive medical care.
So, currently, the lady remains at large.
