Guilty plea in murder
Southbridge man killed son's mother
July 08, 2009
SOUTHBRIDGE — Almost a month ago, Carlos Cruz of 166 High St. pled guilty to first-degree murder in a Bronx, N.Y., courtroom, claiming in the New York Post that a "murderous love" for his son led him to kill the boy's mother, Chelsea Frazier.
But her sister, Corey Plouffe, argues that viewpoint is junk.
"He found any possible reason not to take his son. He even paid Mom to baby-sit him," she said Tuesday. "He wanted nothing to do with [his son]."
That boy, Alijah, is now being raised by Chelsea's parents, Robin and Ray Snow, and Robin said the Cruz family has never expressed any interest in seeing Alijah.
