STUART MAN TOLD SON TO STAB MOM, POLICE REPORT SAYS


DATE: December 17, 2003
PUBLICATION:
Palm Beach Post, The (FL)
EDITION: MARTIN-ST. LUCIE
SECTION: LOCAL

A Stuart man was arrested after his former girlfriend told police he tried to coax their 6-year-old son to stab her with a knife. Edward Munao, 38, of 4428 S.E. Hamilton Lane, was arrested Monday afternoon on a charge of solicitation to commit first-degree murder, according to a Port St. Lucie police report. He was in the St. Lucie County Jail Tuesday night on $250,000 bond.

Jodi Walsh, 34, of Port St. Lucie, told police that her son had called his father in mid-November complaining that his mom wouldn't let him watch television, according to the report.

The boy later told her that Munao "told him to kill her by stabbing her," according to the report. Walsh has a restraining order against Munao, the report said.

Walsh also taped phone conversations with her son and Munao, with permission of the court, according to the report.

The boy called Munao on Nov. 18 because his mother told him to take a shower instead of watching television, according to the report.

Munao tells the boy to go to the kitchen, but the boy says no, the report said.

"Do you want me to kill her for you?" Munao asked, according to the report.

Port St. Lucie police spokesman Kacey Donnell said it is common for parents to use a child during domestic problems.

"This is obviously an extreme case," Donnell said. "It's taking it to a different level."
