girl with knifeHANOVER, PA – An 11-year-old has been accused of stabbing her 2-year-old cousin because she was having “the worst day ever.”

According to police, 31-year-old Anna Kristen Marye went to sleep and left her 11-year-old her niece unsupervised with her 2-year-old daughter last November, despite knowing her niece has mental health and anger issues and had acted aggressive toward her child in the past.

Marye woke up to her niece screaming that something was wrong with Marye’s daughter. When she went to check, she found her daughter in her crib with her intestines protruding through a one-inch laceration to her abdomen. She was transported to the hospital for emergency surgery.

When police interviewed the older girl she first told them she found the child injured and had no idea how she was injured. She would later admit she used a steak knife to stab the girl as she slept. She said she did it because she was “so mad and had the worst day ever.”

According to family members, the girl once said that she wished her cousin was dead, and once approached the younger child with a knife and asked, “Are you ready to die?” The girl was charged as a juvenile with two counts of aggravated assault, while Marye was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.…

Walter JohnsonJACKSONVILLE, FL — Police have arrested 60-year-old Walter Johnson after they say he impregnated a 12-year-old relative.

The girl’s family said they’ve known Johnson for over 40 years and that he lived with the girl’s family in 2011 and 2012, and would also help babysit the girl. Police believe Johnson got the girl pregnant the first week of October 2014.

The family found out the girl was pregnant after a medical test on New Year’s Eve. She revealed Johnson was the father and later told police that he had performed several different sex acts on her.

When Johnson found out the girl was pregnant, he called police and threatened to kill himself. He claimed he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and that he was not taking his medication.

Johnson was taken into custody and has been charged with three counts of sexual battery on a person under 18 years of age. He is being held in lieu of a $1.5 million bond and has denied having any sexual contact with the girl.…

Michael BarnesEVANSVILLE, IN – A couple who have no business raising a kid are facing child neglect charges after video was discovered showing the couple telling a one-year-old girl to put a gun in her mouth.

The video was discovered after police were performing a follow up investigation on 19-year-old Michael Barnes. He had been arrested a day earlier after he tried selling a handgun to an undercover officer he met online.

Officers were looking through Barnes’ cell phone when they found video of the baby playing with a gun. You can hear Barnes and the baby’s mother, 22-year-old Toni Wilson, telling the girl to put the gun in her mouth while Barnes tells her to say “bang” several times.

Wilson initially told police the gun was actually an unloaded pellet gun. Evansville police said that’s total bullshit and that the gun was actually a .40 caliber handgun with the magazine removed.

Barnes and Wilson are each facing charges of child neglect and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. Barnes is also facing charges for his botched gun sale.…

Joy Lynn SpeignerMADISON COUNTY, AL – A couple accused of being “too high” to save their 18-month-old daughter after she ate a dishwashing detergent tablet were sentenced to two years of probation.

Back in 2012, the daughter of Kristopher Speigner and Joy Lynn Speigner died after ingesting a dish washing detergent tablet. They did not call for help until the following morning because, according to police, they were “too high and too drunk” to do anything to save her.

Almost a year later, they were both arrested and charged with negligent homicide and ordered held on $6000 bond. They made bail, but failed to appear for their bench trial in September and a judge issued a warrant for their arrest.

“Last time we had a court date, we continued it, but they were still required to be here and they didn’t show up at that time,” explained ADA Jason Scully-Clemmons. “I felt it had to do with the fact they knew it was gonna be continued, and so that was not much of a big deal.…

Starla Rae McCabePERRY, UT – Starla McCabe, 45, has been accused of selling pornographic images of her 5-year-old daughter and is now facing 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

McCabe is the mother of three children with a criminal history that includes attempted endangerment of a child or elderly adult, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a couple of probation violations.

Over the last few years, the courts have ordered her to undergo drug and parenting classes, as well as mental health evaluations. I do not know the results of that last one, but with the latest allegations, it’s apparent the first two didn’t stick.

Her recent legal woes started in March, after a a relative found nude images of McCabe’s 5-year-old daughter on the child’s Nintendo DSI. The relative reported their findings and the child was interviewed by the Division of Child and Family Services a few days later.

The girl would tell a caseworker that her mother had taken “loads” of pictures of her “without any clothes on.” She would also tell a caseworker that her mother “would then show the pictures to men,” and “printed the pictures and sold them to people for $100.”

The Nintendo DSI was handed over to police who would later find 19 pornographic images of the girl.…

Natasha JohnsonCINCINNATI, OH – Natasha Johnson was arrested by police after they say the 29-year-old burned her estranged husband and two children by throwing a cup of “steaming” hot chocolate on them.

Johnson and her estranged husband got into an argument while he sat in a car with their two children in the backseat. Johnson approached the car and asked him to sign a document saying he was the father of her new child.

The man refused to sign the documents, leading to them getting into a verbal argument. Johnson became so enraged that she tossed a cup of hot chocolate at the man. The hot drink ended up hitting the man as well as the two girls in the back seat.

The man and two children ended up at the hospital to treat first- and second-degree burns they received. Johnson was arrested and charged with domestic violence and two counts of child endangerment. On Wednesday a judge set her bond at $20,000.

In the following video, you can watch as a very upset Johnson tries explaining to the judge that it was an accident, that the hot chocolate got on her husband and two girls only after he pushed her.…

Gary FellenbaumWEST CALN TWP, PA – Police have accused man and his girlfriend of hanging the girlfriend’s 3-year-old son by his feet and beating him to death.

On Thursday morning, authorities were called to the trailer of Gary Fellenbaum and Jillian Tait where Tait’s 3-year-old son, Scott McMillan, was found unresponsive and suffering from from bruises, lacerations and puncture wounds all over his body.

Tait admitted to police that the little boy had been beaten to death over a three day period, starting when the boy wouldn’t eat his breakfast. As punishment, the couple used a plethora of homemade tools to torture the boy, including a whip, a curtain rod, and an aluminum strip.

Tait confessed that these devices were used to beat and whip the boy while he was taped to a chair with electrical tape and even hung upside down by his feet.

“He was punched in the face and in the stomach. He was scourged with a homemade whip. He was lashed with a metal rod. He was tied to a chair and beaten.…

Desiree CozzoniSAINT CHARLES, MO — Police have accused 18-year-old Desiree Cozzoni of giving her child away to a known heroin user so she could live the life of “a normal teenager,” then later called police to falsely claim her child had been kidnapped.

According to reports, Cozzoni and her 16-month-old son moved from place to place, sometimes staying with a heroin user who already lost custody of her two children and lived in motels because she was homeless.

Despite buying heroin daily and using the drug in front of Cozzoni and her her son, Cozzoni signed over custody of her son to the woman on nonlegal documents that I can only imagined looked something like this.

Then, according to court documents, Cozzoni changed her phone number to prevent the woman from being able to contact her. But for some reason, Cozzoni recently had a change of heart. For reasons unknown, she called police to report that her son had been kidnapped by the woman.

After police investigated her claims and found out the whole story, Cozzoni admitted she’d given her son to the woman so that she could go on living the life of “a normal teenager.”

Police charged Cozzoni with two misdemeanor charges of  making a false report and endangering the welfare of a child.…

Ashley TullSELBYVILLE, DE – Police in Delaware have arrested 30-year-old Ashley Tull  after her 4-year-old girl went to daycare and started passing out bags of heroin to other children.

Workers at Hickory Tree Child Care Center called police Monday morning after they observed some of the kids with small bags of an unknown substance. The substance was later determined to be heroin.

An investigation would reveal a 4-year-old girl found 249 small bags in the backpack her mother, Ashley Tull, had given her to use after her own backpack was ruined by the family pet that night. The girl believed the small bags contained candy and began distributing them to her friends.

Although the teachers at the center were able to confiscate the bags before any of the children opened them, some were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.

Police interviewed Tull and then took her into custody. She’s currently charged with maintaining a drug property and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Tull was released after posting $6,000 secured bond.…

Janna ThompsonFULTON COUNTY, GA – Janna Thompson has been indicted on second-degree murder and child cruelty charges after a 3-year-old boy in her daycare accidentally hanged himself while playing on a slide.

On July 9, Thomas Stephens was being watched at Janna’s Daycare, a daycare Thompson ran out of her home. According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Thompson took Stephens and two other toddlers outside to play, leaving two infants and another toddler inside her home.

At some point Janna went back inside to discipline another child.

“While the children were playing, one toddler began misbehaving,” court documents stated. “The Provider took this child inside leaving three children unsupervised on the playground. While inside, the Provider used the restroom, received a phone call and made a phone call.”

After an “undetermined amount of time,” Thompson went back outside and found Stephens laying flat on a slide with a piece of twine wrapped around his neck. The boy wasn’t breathing, so Thompson called 911 and attempted CPR. Unfortunately, Stephens would die in his mother’s arms at the hospital the following day.…

Robert LynchZWOLLE, LA – Police have not filed any criminal charges after a 19-month-old boy got wedged in his mother’s car window and died of positional asphyxia, although there is a criminal investigation into the child’s death.

Emergency responders were called to a home just before 11 p.m. Saturday, where Robert Lynch was found unresponsive and hanging out of his mother’s car window. The toddler was transferred to the hospital and placed on life support Unfortunately, the boy was pronounced brain dead and removed from life support the next day.

Investigators would later learn that the boy’s mother, 26-year-old Deunka Lynch, had just left a family gathering and had placed her son in the backseat of her car without restraining him. She told investigators that after she parked her car she noticed that the back window was rolling up, trapping her son.

Lynch’s family say this was a tragic accident and is in no way reflective of her parenting skills. “This is just something that happened and as a family we are going to stand together,” said the victim’s grandfather, Danny Lynch.…

Blackstone House DayBLACKSTONE, MA — Just two weeks after four children were removed from a vermin-infested home because of suspected abuse or neglect, investigators found the remains of three infants inside the same house.

Police have not charged anyone in relation to the discovery of the bodies, nor have they released the causes of their death. However, they have arrested one of the home’s residents, 31-year-old Erika Murray, on a witness intimidation charge and charges stemming from the living conditions inside the home

“What we know is that we have three infants that have been found deceased at this residence,” Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said. “The house is filled with vermin. We have flies, we have bugs. We have used diapers, in some areas as much as a foot-and-a-half to two feet high.”

Early said officials will be at the now condemned house for the next several days and will continue to search for additional remains.

Two weeks ago, DCF removed a 6-month-old, a 3-year-old, a 10-year-old, and a 13-year-old, from the home after one of the children told a neighbor that the youngest child would not stop crying.…

Reneta CongletonNEW PORT RICHEY, FL – Renata Congleton got herself into a bit of trouble last Friday after the 27-year-old arrived at an elementary school to pick up a child while having a blood alcohol level five times the legal limit.

Staff at Trinity Elementary School say Congleton was extremely intoxicated when she arrived at the school and tried to pick up the child. Police were called to the school but before they got there, Congleton drove off — hitting two cars in the process.

Deputies would find Congleton at home, sitting by her front door. She reportedly swore at them as they tried to question her before kicking and scratching a deputy while being handcuffed.

Congleton was charged with neglect of a child, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting an officer with violence. Her bond was set at $15,000.

I don’t know what’s in the water in Florida, but it seems to make women get their drink on before picking their kids up from school. Congleton is the fourth Florida woman we’ve reported on who’s done this, and wins the award for being the drunkest.…

Tina DurantNEWTON, IA – Tina Durant has been charged with child endangerment after police say the 37-year-old she allowed a 24-year-old friend have sex with her 11-year-old daughter, who is now pregnant.

Jacob White was arrested on July 17 and charged with third-degree sexual abuse after the 11-year-old turned up pregnant and after her parents read Facebook conversations between the girl and White.

But police ended up arresting Durant on Friday after witnesses came forward to report Durant was fully aware that White was having sex with her daughter.

According to witnesses who lived in the home, White slept in the same bed with the victim. They said they addressed it with Durant who did nothing to stop it. According to the police report, the girl was heard telling her mother, “I tried to tell you several times,” during a doctor’s appointment.

Because she failed to notify law enforcement, call the Department of Human Services or taking any action herself, Durant was charged with child endangerment. She’s since been released and will be back in court on Sept.9.…

Laundry PodMINNEAPOLIS, MN – Another baby suffered chemical burns to their mouth and throat because their parents didn’t properly secure the laundry detergent pods.

In the short time that the laundry detergent pod has been made available to the public, 20,000 cases of accidental ingestion have been reported.

Some of these accidental poisonings have been fatal, like the 1-year-old boy we reported on last year who died in a battered women’s shelter after eating a laundry detergent pod.

Of course people are blaming the packaging, stating they look too much like candy. In response, manufacturers have been changing the look of the pods to make them less attractive to toddlers whose parents have ensured kids can get their hands on them.

This latest incident was out of Minnesota where a baby thought one of the pods was a blueberry, like the ones she’d been eating earlier. The pod exploded in her mouth, sending caustic chemicals down her throat. She spent several days in ICU, but is now at home recovering.…

Petra HuffmireFULLERTON, CA — Before I get started with today’s terrible news, I thought I would provide you with some good news in the form of an update on Lester and Petra Huffmire.

In case you’ve forgotten, this is the couple who were arrested last year after it was discovered they’d been keeping two female relatives, ages 5 and 10, malnourished and locked inside a nasty trailer for three years while they played World of Warcraft.

The two girls stayed with the unemployed couple from May 21, 2010 to May 20, 2013, in their trailer at the Satellite Mobile Homes Estate. The girls were never allowed to go outside for any reason, and were not allowed to attend school.

Police visited the trailer after receiving multiple calls from concerned neighbors. What they found inside was a trailer full of filth. It was littered with stacks of trash, debris, mold, and feces. There were a pile of used condoms found under a stuffed teddy bear, the kitchen appliances were covered in mold and cobwebs, and the toilets did not work.…

Briana HollandINDIANAPOLIS, IN – Briana Holland is facing a slew of charges, including attempted murder, after the 22-year-old admitted to stuffing her newborn baby inside a trash can and leaving it to die.

Last Friday night, an employee at United Technology Carrier Corporation called a maintenance worker to a bathroom because they thought they heard an animal in the bathroom’s trash can.

The maintenance worker looked inside the trash can and found a newborn baby wrapped in bags used to dispose of sanitary napkins. The “lower half of the baby was put in a brown paper bag” and the “baby’s head was inside in another brown paper bag.”

Even worse, after the bags were removed, the baby was found to have toilet paper tightly wrapped “approximately 15 times” around his neck, court documents said, and had tissue and a plastic tampon applicator in his mouth. The baby was purple, cold and gasping for air before he stopped breathing.

The maintenance worker quickly removed the items from the baby’s mouth, wrapped the baby in a shirt and used his hands to stop the bleeding umbilical cord.…

Jena HarmanLARAMIE, WY – WARNING! Midway into this article, I begin using the word “they”as a gender-neutral singular because the sex of the child is unknown, rather than as a plural pronoun. Going by the comments, this seems to have confused the hell out of people. I figured I’d warn some of you beforehand so you are not also stuck staring at your monitor in confusion, with drool pooling from your mouth. You’re welcome.

Jena Harman and Alexander Smith have been charged with child abuse and felonious restraint after they allegedly kept Harman’s 7-year-old child in an outdoor cage.

The couple were arrested after a neighbor discovered the child and contacted police. This wouldn;t be the first time police have been called regarding the child, as the Sheriff’s Office says they’ve received complaints of child abuse and requests for welfare checks since August.

When deputies got to the couple’s home on this latest trip, they found the kid inside a six feet square, five feet tall cage constructed of cattle paneling and wooden snow fence.…
