TLC aired a special called "Half-Ton Killer?" in which Marya Rosales, a woman bedridden from obesity, is charged with murder for accidentally crushing and killing her two-year-old nephew.

Rosales reportedly weighs nearly 1,100 pounds, enough to qualify her as one of the world's fattest women. She weighs more than five average men.


In 2008, Rosales first claimed she killed her 2-year-old nephew Eliseo Jr. when she accidentally rolled over and crushed him under her 1,100 pound frame, but her lawyer knew something else was going on.

In the special, Rosales now says she saw her sister use a brush to hit Eliseo repeatedly on his arms, legs and head, and Valdez said she took the blame so that her sister's other kids would still have a mom.

Valdez said that Rosales' excuse collapsed under her own massive weight, especially after doctors determined the child's cause of death came from being hit, not from being smothered.

"We knew something was wrong from the very beginning," Valdez noted in the show. "We said, we're going to have you reenact [how you killed the child] and you can show us.
How did she lose 600 pounds? Access Hollywood did a follow-up.
