  1. A 3 year old beaten to death by his “mother” is so horrible to even imagine!!! Sadly, this little boy died in the worst way possible! And the woman kept lying to try and blame the child, showing NO REMORSE. And to think a toddler’s head would break a toilet bowl shows she was also stupid. Hope she never gets to see the six year old who she also abused. The death penalty is far too good for her. Where were the boy’s fathers??!

    • I am just as confused. I have read that she was not the Mother; she was the Mother’s girlfriend. I remember reading that she went to her husband’s bedroom to fetch the tire iron. I am not sure whose husband. Either way to to kill a child because he is brushing his teeth is a serious problem. If she couldn’t handle it, she should have informed the Mother. There is a good chance she may get the death penalty.

  2. Maybe someone needs to hit her with a tire iron. She would not like it either. My heart goes out to the boys parents
    And may GOD have mercy on that ladies soul

  3. I pray they put her in general population and those ladies give her a good old fashion whoops there it is. That poor baby suffered everyone that has children do not need them. Keep your legs clothes and if you cant do that use birth control, or get sterilization done. These children can not fend for themselves! God knew what this little one would be from the moment of conception and his mother took that away!
