I’m sure that Steven Molin, 58, thought that ludicrous “fell out” story would fly, especially after he backed up and ran over her repeatedly. The problem is he already had a history of elder abuse. At what point was he SURE she was under the vehicle, hmmm?

Steven Molin, 58, of Darby is charged with murder in the death of his mother, 85-year-old Emily Belle Molin.

Police say Molin picked up his mother from the Sterling Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center Nursing home in Media, Pa. and drove her to Maryland on Tuesday. Then, just before midnight, the Worcester County, Md. Sheriff’s Dept. responded to a reported vehicle accident on Carey Road in Berlin.

Emily Molin was found to be injured and was rushed to the hospital where she died from her injuries.

During the investigation, police say Steven Molin told them his mother fell out of the vehicle, so he then backed up after discovering she had fallen. The elder Molin was run over two to three times, police said.

Police say they investigated Molin, and decided his story didn’t match up with the evidence. He was then charged with murder.

Hat tip to Jonathan Turley, who said: “I must say that it would help if the mug shot showed a tad more grief at the fact that he had just turned his mother into road kill.”
