Murder trial still months away for 2 Irvington women in 8-year-old's death

updated December 05, 2012 at 4:17 PM
IRVINGTON – With bags of
evidence to be analyzed, stacks of documents written in Creole to be
translated and state child welfare agency reports to be inspected, a
murder trial is still several months away in the case of two Irvington
women charged with torturing and killing an 8-year-old girl in May 2011.


At a hearing in Superior Court in Newark this morning, the child’s
mother, Venette Ovilde; and co-defendant Myriam Janvier provided saliva
samples for DNA testing, which the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office had
requested.


Ovilde, 31, and Janvier, 23, both face murder and related charges in
the death of Ovilde’s daughter, Christiana Glenn, whose body was found
emaciated and with an untreated broken leg on May 22, 2011. The 38-count
indictment also includes allegations the pair abused Christiana's now
7-year-old brother and 8-year-old sister, who were found malnourished
and injured. They survived.


Janvier’s attorney, Bukie Adetula, today said the judge still has to
determine what information to release from a foot-high stack of
documents from the state Department of Children and Families, which
covers its history with the three children.


A trial, if the case goes that far, could be more than nine months away, officials said.


Investigators emptied the women’s Irvington apartment of its
contents, Adetula said, which amounted to three dozen large bags of
items, and hundreds of pages of documents, much of them written in
Creole. Once the prosecutor’s office has the information translated,
Adetula said the defense may seek its own translator to review some of
the documents.


The women, both from Haiti, are alleged to have followed an unusual
brand of faith led by a Haitian pastor, who reportedly ordered them to
fast daily and prohibited them from working or contacting their
families. Ovilde had her name legally changed to Krisla Rezireksyon
Kris.


The women remain in jail – Ovilde in Essex County and Janvier in Hudson County – and have pleaded not guilty to the charges.


Ovilde’s attorney, Jennifer Sellitti, could not be reached for comment.


The prosecutor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

I still can't believe some people are defending these monsters. That disgusts me.

N.J. woman, charged in murder of girl, says she prayed over child's body

NEWARK — After eight-year-old Christiana Glenn fell in her Irvington apartment in May 2011, one of her caregivers, Myriam Janvier, later told police she treated the girl's leg with cornmeal and fuel from a local gas station, among other remedies."And she was doing alright and her spirit was still strong," Janvier said. "She still had the same attitude."

But on May 22, 2011, Janvier said the child woke up in a "cold" state. Janvier said she and the girl's mother, Krisla Rezireksyon, started "talking to her and praying around her."

"Hoping and praying that she would...come back to herself," Janvier said.

After the women ultimately called for an ambulance, the emergency medical technicians determined the girl did not have a heartbeat, Janvier said.

Janvier, 27, and Rezireksyon, 33 - who allegedly belonged to a religious cult - are now facing murder and related charges for allegedly killing Glenn, and abusing and neglecting Rezireksyon's two younger children.

Authorities have said Glenn was emaciated and had an untreated broken leg, and her siblings - Solomon and Christina Glenn - were also starved and sustained fractures that went untreated.

Janvier, dressed in all white clothing, recalled the events inside the apartment during an interview with two detectives in the hours after Glenn was found dead.

A portion of a video recording of that interview was played on Friday during a hearing to determine whether Janvier's statement will be admissible at her trial. The hearing is scheduled to continue on May 18.

After similar hearings, Superior Court Judge Michael L. Ravin determined that Rezireksyon's statement will be admissible at her trial.

One of the factors in determining the admissibility of Janvier's statement will be that the detectives did not advise her of her Miranda rights until after they had begun speaking with her.

Sgt. Michael Davidson of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, one of the detectives who interviewed Janvier, testified on Friday that he initially did not see a reason to advise her of her Miranda rights, because she wasn't a suspect at that time.

"She was free to leave," Davidson said.

During the interview, Davidson said he advised her of the Miranda rights after realizing Janvier had played a greater role in caring for the children.

"She was more...of a co-mother, based on the things that she said," Davidson said. "So at that point, I thought it would be best to Mirandize her."

On the witness stand, Davidson also testified about the scene that unfolded after police had arrived at the Chancellor Avenue apartment where Rezireksyon and Janvier lived with the three children.

When Davidson entered the home, Janvier was by the apartment door and Rezireksyon was in the kitchen, Davidson said. The women "described each other as 'sister,'" Davidson said.

There were no couches, tables or chairs, he said. There were white sheets on the floor, hanging from the walls and covering the windows, Davidson said.

"Everything was completely white," Davidson said.

Glenn's body was lying on the floor in one room, Davidson said. Nearby, there was a curtain covering a makeshift door made of plywood that led to another room, Davidson said.

When Davidson reached the door, Janvier asked him, "Why are you going into my room?," according to Davidson.

With his gun drawn, Davidson said he ultimately entered the other room and found Solomon and Christina Glenn inside. The children appeared to have "some scars," he said.
