Jennifer Petkov, the Detroit woman who is now the subject of internet for posting death threats about her 7-year-old dying neighbor on Facebook, was arrested this week. She allegedly attempted to hit a neighbor with her car. The woman pressing charges wasn’t related to Kathleen Edward , the little girl Jennifer was tauniting, but she was on her way to visit the family.
Meanwhile, Petkov’s husband Scott has been suspended from his job as a forklift driver, and is likely to be fired, due to frequent letters sent to his employer by 4Chan members.
Jennifer has since been released on bail. But it’s also come out that Jennifer Petkov was placed on probation for disorderly conduct for six months on July 5, 2010.
As for the Edward family, there has been an outpouring of support, and this week Kathleen went on a $2000 shopping spree at Tree Town Toys in Ann Arbor, thanks to generous donations made by people who have learned of the story.
