ORLANDO, FL – Police say a 3-year-old boy was beaten to death with a plastic rod because made the grievous mistake of drinking milk from a jug.

The incident happened early Friday inside a Pine Hills apartment after 3-year-old Xavier Mokarzel-Satchel drank milk from a jug and ate some yogurt.

This angered 58-year-old Callene Barton, who lived in the apartment, so she began yelling at the boy.

Barton’s daughter, 28-year-old Lakesha Lewis, didn’t feel this was an adequate punishment, so she began beating the boy with a plastic rod used to operate blinds. She reportedly beat the poor kid until it broke.

Awakened by the commotion, the boy’s mother ran out, grabbed her son and ran back to her bedroom. Barton wasn’t having it and came after them. She grabbed the boy by his arm and leg and tossed him down the hallway.

That’s when the boy began having seizures.

Realizing they messed up, Barton and Lewis tried reviving him by splashing water on his face. When the boy’s mother tried to call 911, Barton slapped the phone out of her hand.

Barton told the woman that if she called police she would “end” her because she wasn’t losing another child to Child Protective Services. The boy’s mother ended up running to a neighbor and calling police. When she went back to her apartment she found her son on his back with food coming out of his nose.

Xavier was rushed to the hospital barely breathing but there was nothing doctors could do — he would die several hours later. Doctors said the boy showed signs of past abuse, which was confirmed by the boy’s mother who said the two women had beat her son in the past.

Lewis and Barton were both arrested and charged with first-degree felony murder and aggravated child abuse charges. Xavier’s mother, Brandi Mokarzel, was also arrested and charged with neglect of a child.

Lewis’ 4-year-old son, who was also living in the apartment, was placed in custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families. Court records show Barton once spent two days in jail after pleading guilty to a past child abuse charge.
