Kevin & Marketta Starved Child To Death

Marketta McCray & Kevin Isaac

Sumter, SC–Children should never be made to go hungry…ever. Hunger hurts and death by starvation is a long, slow, painful process. A set of 18-month-old twins in the Isaac/McCray home know all about hunger. One of those twins died from starvation on Monday…he weighed in at a whoppin’ 4 pounds.

On Monday, police were called to the home of Marketta McCray, 23, and Kevin Isaac, 25, on a report of an unresponsive child. The home was filthy and had a foul odor throughout. There was dirty laundry and garbage everywhere. A dog was locked in a room covered in feces…there were roaches and rats, alive and dead. The responding officer observed a ‘pale, small frame infant, lying in a chair near the front door.’ EMT’s arrived and transported the child to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. That child’s twin, a girl, and three other children were removed from the home.

An autopsy revealed the child died from starvation. A police report listed the toddler’s weight at 4 pounds. His death is probably what saved his sister’s life. The surviving twin was hospitalized for malnutrition…she’s in critical condition at a whoppin’ 9 pounds. WTF? The weight of these two children combined don’t even add up to what a normal 1-year-old should weigh. Police say they don’t know the last time the toddler’s were fed.

The three other children removed from the home seemed healthy; a 4-year-old male at 40 lbs., a 6-year-old female at 35 lbs., and a 9-year-old male at 60 lbs. They are now in the custody of DSS.

Neighbors say the three older children look like they never missed a meal. Why were the younger two forgotten? There were three adults in that home…McCray, Isaac, and an unnamed adult. McCray was a stay at home mom! None of them cared enough to feed those babies? Fuck you people.

Marketta McCray and Kevin Issac were both arrested and charged with homicide by child abuse or neglect and unlawful conduct. They are being held in Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center. Bail has not yet been set, but Police Chief Patty Patterson said police would request that bail be denied when the hearing is held.

Edit: While the police report indicates that the child weighed 4 lbs., other sources put him at slightly under 9 lbs. Not that it makes much difference, the child still starved to death, but I just wanted to have the facts in the story.

  • RunecirE

    Another set of losers for the Seventh Circle of Hell. It going to get crowded the way things are going. Hope they suffer terrible fates in prison.

    Starving them to death would be appropriate, and given their size and weight, that would be a long and painful process.

    This woman does not deserve the title of “stay at home mom” a stay at home mom, takes care of her children, loves them, sacrifices her own life for them. She did none of this.

    yeah me too..im seriously leading in that direction.

  • mjmsepm

    You as a parent eat last! thoses babies should of gotten food before any of thoses fat ass adults! I have an 18 mont old and he weighs almost 40 lbs….how in the hell did he make it so long weighing only 4lbs…..newborns weigh more than that! no one noticed??? ughhh starve them to death and that other adult needs to be charged also!

  • shayshaymomma85

    Just to imagine the last few days of that baby. Just to imagine what it’s like to be hungry all the time. OMG! I need some poison and access to their food in the pen!

    I say if your victim dies from cruel and unusual punishment, so should you!

    Poor baby, I swear DD has me shedding tears every day.

    I couldn’t imagine not feeding my 22 month old. I can’t imagine seeing him in pain and defenseless, and doing NOTHING.

    Like many others who make it to this site, the devil spawned these people.

  • CassieMomma

    4 FUCKING POUNDS???? 4 POUNDS….. 4 POUNDS…..WHAT!!!!!!! I am horrified beyond belief right now.

  • Jury

    I agree, Fuck you people.

  • mama2gkb

    my cat weighs more than four fucking pounds!

  • KAEB4

    I am thinking of how my 16 month old acts when she wants her ba at night — tears if it doesn’t come fast enough and she signs “milk milk” and then when I bring that bottle and she says “dant doo” (thank you) and lays down so contented. Making her wait only 5 minutes while I run down and get some milk and she has tears pouring down her face and then that simple gratitude for a simple need met.

    These babies, how thye must have cried, the PAIN they must have felt, and those cries were just ignored by EVERYONE in that house? Till that little boy was too weak to cry, and then finally just laid there as his body slowed down and then stopped. FUCK that just breaks my heart! The most simple thing you must do as a parent, feed the child who is dependent on you for nourishment. Every member of the animal kingdom has figured that out.

    Daddy looks like a fat fuck and mommy could get her hair done but they couldn’t feed those babies.???? What did an 18-month old do to desreve being starved to death????? I say starve them both and then give them maggot infested shit and poisoned water once they are begging for food and then watch them writhe in agony before they die.

  • CassieMomma

    I was thinking the same thing KAEB4, even thinking that an 18 month old should be able to say they are hungary, but imagine how undeveloped mentally they must of been as well. It breaks my heart and I will be sure to see that my 3 year old eats like a little piggy tonight.

  • 2 boys mom in NC

    4 FUCKING POUNDS???? 4 POUNDS….. 4 POUNDS…..WHAT!!!!!!! I am horrified beyond belief right now.

    Both of my boys weighed more than that at birth (both 6lbs 8oz) and I was amazed at how small they were. Dear God, 4 POUNDS…4 LITTLE TINY POUNDS! I’d sure love to throw my 150 lbs loose at these sorry pieces of shit.

  • OnyxRayne

    My one month old weighs more then that. This makes me sick. That fat fuck of a man and bitch of a woman need to be treated the same way the treated that baby. HOWEVER I would give them a biscuit a week to make the torture last longer. And if your starving the pain after only having a smidgen of food is unbearable.

  • grannyof2

    the low life mutherfluckers sombeaches roostersuckers, when your babies are that hungry, or If my child or grandbabies were that hungry i would beg sell my ass for food what ever i needed to do!!!!!well by hell I would!! most people will do what they can to feed children, damn im sooo pissed

  • kittylewis

    i am ashamed to be from south carolina right now! How can anyone do this to a child?? these two need to be shot, only wounded and left to die a slow death.

  • rhp2003

    somedays i just shouldnt come on here. I am hurting so bad in my heart right now.

    If my kids (4&5 years) eat dinner after soccer practice at 7:30 at night, by 9 they are asking for a snack again. i cant imagine.

    and my kids would share food, were the other kids in that home scared to share food with the other children? cause children are naturally compassionate.

  • http://www.myspace.com/titicarie philly_phan

    Stay-at-home mom, my ass! Stay at home moms are supposed to care for and FEED their children! That is what SAH moms do! She was too busy watching Jerry Springer and obviously not Dr. Phil or Oprah! OMFG. How the hell did the poor baby survive THIS long?! Sickening. Just trifling.

  • MAjustaMom

    Where are the pediatricians in this? Other family members? Neighbors? I’m sure everyone knew about the birth of the twins then nobody noticed they weren’t around or saw them and didn’t notice they were being starved? There are many heads that should roll on this one, starting with the parents. These “parents” should never be allowed near ANY of their children again. This makes me sick, poor babies, RIP little boy and I hope his sister is a survivor. When I had my twins one of the NICU nurses told me that black baby girls are the strongest survivors when you compare sick babies, that statistic is probably what saved this little angel.

  • KANE

    You know, I’m quite hungry right now, but I’m a work-a-holic so I keep saying “in a minute” to my belly. Still, its not a pleasant feeling at all and my belly just kicked it up a notch so its almost painful. I’m an adult and I can choose to put myself through this, but an 18 month old child should never be subjected to hunger. That baby should be eating if every adult in the house has to go hungry.

    4 fucking pounds! I want to kick their asses. My niece was born premature and weighed four pounds, they wouldn’t let her leave the hospital until she weighed 8 pounds. When I visited her she was literally bones with skin hanging. She was only 20 inches or so long.

    I hate to imagine, Lord, I don’t want to imgaine, what an 18 month old baby that weighs four pounds looks like.

    STUPID BITCHES…

    I’m getting angrier the more I think about it and the more I type…

    I bet those ASSHOLES were collecting food stamps and WIC for those babies but still couldn’t see fit to feed them. IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO FEED A TODDLER, THEY EAT ANYTHING THEY CAN GET THEIR HANDS ON! Especially when they are being starved to death.

    My daughter is 21 months old and she is our heaviest child (we have a 4 and a 5), I often wonder if we feed her too much, but at her age if she indicates she’s hungry, I’m going to feed her. IT’s WHAT A GOOD PARENT DOES. Hell, most bad parents still feed their kids. I don’t care how round she gets if the doctor isn’t concerned.

    I gotta leave this page or I’m going to go to Walmart and start beating up neglectful parents.

  • Dakota Valkyrie

    My twins weighed 5 pounds each. I can not imagine an 18-month-old weighing less than that. It makes me cry.

    It is SO much easier to feed kids – especially at that age. If you are going to be the kind of parent that doesn’t give a rat’s ass, just put a bowl of something in front of them. They will be quiet and stay busy.

    They have other children that made it past 18-months so they are not stupid. Everyone else ate so they can afford food and take time to make it.

    They are just evil. The worst kind of evil.

  • Taz

    Stay-at-home mom, my ass! Stay at home moms are supposed to care for and FEED their children! That is what SAH moms do! She was too busy watching Jerry Springer and obviously not Dr. Phil or Oprah! OMFG. How the hell did the poor baby survive THIS long?! Sickening. Just trifling.

    Thats what I am wondering, If she stayed home What the hell did she do all damn day, that she couldnt be bothered to feed her poor little babys.

    I saw in a new article the little girls name was ” Treasure ” , that made me even more sad about the whole thing. What a presious name to give to your child.

  • silvahalo

    I want to know how parents could allow their children to suffer so. An 18 month old at 4lbs…(other source now say 8lbs), would have stopped trying to crawl or move long before his death and would have never reached those wondrous moments of his first steps. I try to imagine seeing a baby of this age in that physical state. He must have been put to lay somewhere once he became too week to get around, and literally left him there to die. His cries and whimpers would have become common place, like that of a kitten who makes his own way about the home.

    There is no cruelty worse than a slow, agonizing death of a child. It is a heinous, malicious and most unforgivable way to let one die. There is no just punishment other than to inflict the same anguish and pain this poor baby went through..and then, as death approaches them, they should be made to lay feet from food, but with no strength to reach it, die staring at it…smelling it.

    . His grief, his torment which was worse than a starving child in Africa, as he had no one comforting him…he was ALLOWED to starve and die….my heart is broken once again…I don’t know how, as it has broken several times reading this case.

    It’s simply deplorable. This should never happen to our children….never. Swift, severe punishment to his tormentors. I pray his sister, Treasure who is barely clinging to life, recovers completely and that his siblings find a loving home out of the hell they were raised. This is simply a disgrace upon humanity.

    Bless you Sincere Isaac, that you find comfort, love and peace now in the heavens….kisses wee one.

    Wow, Just Wow! UnfrigginBelievable!
    http://www.theitem.com/article/20090304/ITNEWS01/703049932
    A woman who identified herself as the grandmother of the children said the deceased boy’s name was Sincere Isaac. His twin sister, whom authorities said was being treated for severe malnourishment at Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia, is Treasure Isaac, said the woman, Marva McCray.
    McCray disputed officials’ statements that the house the children were living in was filled with roaches, rats, animal feces and dirty laundry and was “unkept.”
    “She wasn’t neglecting them,” McCray said of her daughter, Marketta McCray. “The way she told me, he just died of natural causes. He took sick when he was getting treatment, then he got sicker.”
    The house is a small, yellow building with two “Beware of Dog” signs posted on either side of the porch. Marva McCray and several other people, all of whom were wearing gloves, were cleaning up the house Tuesday afternoon. When asked about the authorities’ description of the filth in the house Monday afternoon, McCray said, “I can’t answer that.”
    Natural Causes? Treatment? WTH? Marva, why you wearin’ gloves, if the house ain’t that bad?

    So Sorry Sincere Isaac, you never had a chance, Rest Easy, Feast with the Father!

  • Lavonna

    So Sorry Sincere Isaac, you never had a chance, Rest Easy, Feast with the Father!

    Amen

  • Taz

    “On March 3, 2009, it was determined Sincere died of exhaustion from the lack of nourishment and starvation,” said an investigator as McCray moaned.!

    They said Sincere Isaac died from exhaustion due to the lack of food, poor things body just ran out of fuel .

    Marketta McCray cried up a storm today at the bail hearing, ( looked faked to me, damn drama bitch ) too bad she couldnt have put that much energy to feeding her babys.

    “I don’t want this,” wailed McCray.
    “Oh Jesus, I need to see my kids! Can I just get out on bond? Oh Jesus!” wailed McCray.
    “Get off me, let me hug my momma please!” responded McCray.

    An eighteen month old baby girl weighed as much as my son did at birth.

    I’m speechless.

    These babies, how thye must have cried, the PAIN they must have felt, and those cries were just ignored by EVERYONE in that house?

The most simple thing you must do as a parent, feed the child who is dependent on you for nourishment. Every member of the animal kingdom has figured that out.

    What really makes me sick is that the child’s worst pain had to have come after he was too weak to cry anymore.

    Stupid. Fucking. Assholes. I hope they die horrible, slow deaths. Very slow, and very painful.

    This might sound bad, but it almost makes me even more sick when some children are allowed to starve while other children in the house are healthy as horses. What the fuck? You can’t blame that on poverty or ignorance (not that I buy that BS anyway), it’s clear that this child was deliberately starved.

    I don’t even want to begin to describe the sick fantasies I’m having about what I’d like to do to these pieces of human feces.

  • thehesbomb

    My heart breaks for those poor sweet babies. My son was 9 pounds at BIRTH, at 15 months he is 26 pounds. They should be tortured just like they tortured their innocent children. Let them go hungry until they can no longer exist.

    “She wasn’t neglecting them,” McCray said of her daughter, Marketta McCray. “The way she told me, he just died of natural causes. He took sick when he was getting treatment, then he got sicker.”

    Stupid pieces of shit run in the family, obviously. The sorry ass excuse of a “grandmother” (where’s the fucking homemade cookies?) should starve along with them.

  • MzBehavin

    I hope they forget to feed these worthless sacks of shit in prison. And looking at that bitch’s mug, makes me want to kick her fucking teeth in. For some reason I can see her giving her children the same look while they were crying for food. Fucking Cunt.

    My daughter weighed 10.5 at birth, so it’s hard imagining a 9 pound 18-month old, let alone a 4 pound one. Could these babies even walk??

    RIP Little one :(

  • MadeaBecBec

    I totally agree! Had this been my grandbaby, I would’ve been going to those (so-called) Doctors visits and asking the Pediatrician, WTF? But I don’t think Grams really gave a damn, until the PoPo was puttin’ the cuffs on Marketta…. Too Late then!

  • Dakota Valkyrie

    It is pretty natural to die when no one feeds you…

  • Kdogg

    my guess is for whatever reason, they saw the twins as a burden. It is not that unusual to see one child get beaten and abused while the rest are not. I hope the jailers “forget” to feed them.

  • http://www.myspace.com/justdazin So Jaded

    I edited the story to add….

    OH MY GOD
    What the fuck is going on in this world, if the judge had a brain and can do what the punishment we all want them to see, PUT THEM IN A PRISON CELL ALONE AND NEVER EVER EVER FEED THESE TWO, THREE PEOPLE ALL THREE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SAD STORY AND FOR THE POOR BABY THAT DIED, SORRY HONEY YOU ARE NOW WITH GOD AND YOU ARE SAFE
    FUCK THAT KILL ALL THREE INDIVIDUALS IF YOU WANT WHO CARES, AND TO THE FUCKERS OUT THERE IN THE WORLD IF YOU DONT WANT YOUR CHILDREN OR DON’T WANT TO CARE FOR THEM, OR FEED THEM GO SOMEWHERE,HOSPITAL,CHURCH, NEIGHBORS AND GIVE THE CHILDREN TO SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM YOU FUCKERS
    I AM SO PISSED RIGHT NOW I COULD EASILY FIND THESE TWO, THREE INDIVIDUALS AND PUT A BULLET INTHEIR HEAD
    REST IN PEACE LITTLE ONE SORRY FOR WHAT YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH AND I WILL PRAY FOR THE OTHER TO RECOVER AND BE ADOPTED TO A LOVING MOM AND DAD

  • LDhummingbird

    Wow. Just… wow. I work with one-year-olds, and they all weigh about 25-30 pounds. The other kids sound a little small to me too, but not distressingly so. I just can’t wrap my head around this story.

    Four pounds or nine pounds, I have to agree with mama2gkb:

    my cat weighs more than four fucking pounds!

    Mine does too; in fact, as just an ordinary cat-sized house cat he weighs more than nine pounds.

    These sorry jerks had these babies for the added $ on the welfare check, EBT card, and tax deduction. This HO probably “worked” under the table –(or on the bed) so she could get the highest EIC that Uncle Sam would allow every year.
    They figure if the kids die, they don’t report it, and they still get the money.

    PIECES of CRAPPPP!!!

  • AMinFH

    my cat weighs more than four fucking pounds!

    No doubt and while I barely have a thing in the kitchen to eat, I went I bought a bag of f’ing $16 cat food on my lunch hour so that I wouldnt run out for the weekend…

    These people are totally disgusting! I HATE people that harm their kids and especially ones that are fat slobs that stave their kids to death!!! I can only hope when they are depending on the prison to house and feed them they can feel even a fraction of how being helpless, cold, lonely, and hungry their own child felt…its a big wish but I make it…that grandmother is a dumb bitch too openly defending these depraved people- she raised a child at least and can honestly say that the boy was just dying of natural causes??? And their house wasnt a nasty filth hole while cleaning it with gloves on??? DAMN…

  • lamexcore

    this is just extremely disgusting. you know the other kids probably would have been starving too but fortunately they are old enough to get food for themselves. granted they were probably surviving on junk, because I doubt these fucks were making a home cooked meal. If she was a stay at home mom, what the hell was she doing with her time? Obviously not the things most stay at home moms do…clean, and take care of children. The court video is extremely pathetic. They were obviously planning on this happeneing. I mean this isn’t just one parent not feeding their children but neither of them did. I’m just amazed at how small they were. Fricken premies are 4LBS!

  • mominAZ

    Good God! I couldn’t IMAGINE letting my babies starve to death! These two HAD TO of been using drugs…or perhaps leaving the toddlers alone with the older kids. What do babies do when they’re hungry? Cry, holler, wail, scream, whatever. I don’t understand how these people could let these babies cry for food until they were too weak to cry any more. Makes me sick!
    And FOUR LBS? Jesus, my dog takes dumps that are bigger than 4 lbs!

  • http://myspace.com/selenabell selenabell

    thats just fucked….all 3 of my kids when they were born weighted 9 lbs….this is just horrible they dont look like they missed any meals either assholes…let them starve to death

  • Go_swwaty_Go

    i know right that dosent make any since i would like to go up to that jail house a give them a peace of my mind. how do you starve your baby i just dont underrstand that.

  • MadeaBecBec

    The parents of an infant who starved to death last March pleaded guilty Monday to homicide by child abuse or neglect.
    Judge George C. “Buck” James responded by sentencing the father of Sincere Isaac, 26-year-old Kevin DeWayne Isaac, to 25 years in prison and the mother, 24-year-old Marketta Sharnise McCray, to 29 years behind bars.
    “How do you decide on a number of years for something like this?” said James, just before making his decision. “That’s a little bit cheap. Things like this can’t be measured in years of imprisonment.”
    Sincere’s twin sister, Treasure, was also taken into custody at the time and treated for severe malnutrition and neglect. She weighed 9 pounds. Both were 26 inches tall.

    According to prosecutors, the children’s weight and height indicated they had been starved “over a long period of time.”

    When Treasure was taken into custody, said Irene Culick, a senior detective with the Sumter Police Department who investigated the case, she was dirty and did not have the proper teeth of a baby her age. She also had an ear infection, a severe diaper rash with open, bleeding wounds and matted hair. She had not seen a doctor since soon after her birth and had not received the necessary immunizations. And she was developmentally delayed.
    “She could not sit, stand, walk or roll over,” Culick said. “After nine bottles, she was still hungry. … And she’s still delayed. … You’ve seen the pictures, and a picture is worth a thousand words.”
    Culick added that when the child was taken into custody, she immediately drank nine bottles of milk. Treasure continues to be so fearful of starvation, she said, that she still hoards food in her cheeks whenever she eats.
    She is making progress, however. At 29 months of age, she weighs 30 pounds and is walking.
