This has to be one of the strangest murder cases we’ve ever heard of.

TLC recently announced the premiere date of their shocking new special called Half-Ton Killer, which documents the strange case of Mayra Rosales. As the titular half-ton woman, Mayra confessed to killing her 2-year-old nephew Eliseo Rosales Jr. in 2008 by falling onto him. She was acquitted in January 2012 after it was determined that blows to the head actually caused Eliseo Jr.’s death — and that she was too heavy to have committed the crime.

Meanwhile, we’ll be taking bets on how long it will take TLC to fashion this alarming story into a full-blown series.

Half-Ton Killer airs October 10, 2012 at 9 p.m. PT/8 p.m. CT.
