    No chance of rehab for Kelly..She should be sentenced to life without keep her contaminated, defective genes from being unsupervised. Her kind of defect does not even have a chance in a civilized world. Maybe, Somalia, would suit her better. Sorry prognosis for human, defective, genes..not too promising.
