Ridgeville, South Carolina — The Dorchester County Sheriff’s department has been investigating the death of Rowan Bracci since January 9, and on Friday, his 19-year-old mother was denied bond after being charged with his death. Police say Amber Bracci hit the baby because she thought he was “possessed.”

Not only is Bracci charged, but her 20-year-old boyfriend, John Weaver, is also facing charges of homicide by child abuse in the death of 16-month-old Rowan.

Although Bracci’s bond was denied, she will be able to request a bond again in six months. The judge was more lenient with Weaver, as he was granted a $50,000 bond.

Though the couple is now apparently pointing fingers at each other, Bracci is the one who blamed the death on the child being “possessed” and admitted that she was the one who hit the child.

“I went in there and picked my son up out of bed at 10:30 in the morning and he was limp,” Bracci said in an interview with WCSC-TV. “His eyes were closed and he was not responsive.” The coroner says the boy died two days later of head trauma. His retinas were detached with severe hemorrhaging behind the eyes. The doctor also said there had been signs of abuse prior to this incident.

“I loved my son with all my heart,” Bracci said. “I may not have been a perfect mother. There are things that I regret.”

    There are things she regrets? Wow, way to minimize the fact that you murdered your child.

    “I loved my son with all my heart,” Bracci said. “I may not have been a perfect mother. There are things that I regret.”

    What do you say to a woman who makes the above statement after smacking her child to a slow death? I also cannot figure out how, after admitting that she hit the baby in the head, she can claim her boyfriend did this?

    i don’t believe for one second she honestly believes the devil made her do it. especially if she’s playing the blame game. dumb bitch is hoping to get off on some “criminally insane” bullshit.

    “may not have been a perfect mother”. Wow, what a way she has with understatements… stupid fucking bitch. She’s not only killed her poor defenseless child, she’s only 19 and has completely ruined her own life.

    “There are things that I regret.”

    Is punching your baby in the head until he dies one of them?

    If it’s not, I hope a few years in prison gen-pop will change that for you.

    Yes. My first thought.

    What a deceitful, horrible person. Her read-from-a-card-statement makes me want to yak.

    I think she’s the one possessed. An ignorant lying piece of shit whore that says her child is possessed after she beats him to death.
    Nice wonder what else this pyscho has to say for herself.

    Ya’ll know this sack of shit is freaking selfish as hell. All I hear when explaining herself is: I-I-I, everything is about her nothing is about her child.

    I like her at about 1:07 – she’s all like “what, I’m going to JAIL?” and then is like arguing with the officer…
