Mother Beats 5-Year-Old Son To Death For Breaking TV
A 5-year-old boy was beaten to death by his mother in New York, after the child broke the television while playing Nintendo Wii.
According to the NY Daily News:
Kim Crawford, 21, smacked Jamar Johnson in his back and stomach on June 13 “harder than I’ve ever hit him,” she told cops.
Crawford watched him vomit and complain of agonizing pain for five days as his internal injuries got worse. She never took him to the hospital because she feared getting arrested, she told investigators.
“I was worried they’d see the bruises and I’d get in trouble,” she told cops.
Jamar died of an infection to his lacerated pancreas and intestine at Montefiore Medical Center late Friday.
Prosecutors charged Crawford with murder and manslaughter. She was ordered held without bond Monday.
Another heartbreaking story and another family sadly torn apart.
