Monster mother loses custody of her kids

Jennifer Petkov, the 33-year-old woman who admitted to taunting and bullying 7-year-old Kathleen Edward ,is learning that life holds consequences for monsters like her.  After the news broke last week about Petkov’s merciless harassment of a dying little girl, the Internet responded with fury.  While her victim has been showered with love and treated to a fantasy day at a toy store, Jennifer and her family have been on the receiving end of a lot of anger and hatred.

Jennifer Petkov has received death threats, her husband is in danger of losing his job and their son has been fighting at school over his messed up mother.  And earlier this week, Petkov was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and reckless driving after allegedly trying to run down a neighbor.

But while neighbors and strangers alike have been appalled by this woman and what she’s done, there’s at least one person with a personal interest in what kind of craziness is going on in the Petkov home:  Jennifer Petkov’s ex and the father of two of her children.

According to a report at MyFoxDetroit, the father of Petkov’s 8-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter filed for an emergency custody hearing as soon as the news of his ex’s bullying of little Kathleen broke.  Yesterday, a  Wayne County Probate Court judge granted his request and ordered the children removed from the Petkov home and into his custody until further notice.

While that’s great and certainly a relief for those of us who have been concerned about children being raised by a mother who is so clearly disturbed, that still leaves her with one kid at home.   I worry about him.
