MARDELA SPRINGS, MD — A couple have been arrested and accused of beating three children in their custody and forcing them to eat dog feces.

On Friday, someone tipped off police about the possible abuse of three children — ages 8, 9 and 10 — at the home of 29-year-old Amanda Wright and her live-in girlfriend 25-year-old Besline Joseph.

By that night, the three children were taken from the home and the couple was arrested.

According to investigators, the abuse began as early as May of last year and included the women beating the children with their hands, extension cords, belts, sticks, a stun gun and other objects.

The children were rarely let outside and mostly kept locked inside a closet or the basement of the home. Police say the children were mainly fed bread and water,  and the occasional dog turd.

“They were also starved, being fed a diet of only bread and water and some oatmeal from time to time again. Investigators learned they were forced to eat dog feces on occasion,” said Maj.…

AKRON, OH — Police are investigating after a two-year-old girl froze to death on the front porch of her home.

On Friday, a woman called 911 to report she had found her daughter frozen on the front porch outside where temperatures that day ranged between 12 and 19 degrees.

The 911 dispatcher instructed the woman how to perform CPR on the girl until paramedics arrived and rushed the girl to Akron Children’s Hospital where she died.

The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office is determining exactly how the girl died.

Police have also started their investigation and have been questioning neighbors.

One neighbor told reporters the family mostly kept to themselves, and that the woman had two children, the two-year old-girl and a boy. She also said the woman’s kids were often seen playing outside unsupervised.

“I’ve had to take the baby home ’cause she’ll be outside playing. It was a few times that I had to take both of her kids home,” the neighbor said.

Police have not identified the girl or her mother.…

PARK HILLS, MO – Police have arrested a couple after they were accused of putting their 4-month-old son inside a microwave, then turning it on.

Police were called after the baby was brought to a hospital for a rash on his face.

Doctors quickly discovered that the rash was actually a second-degree burn, and that the baby was suffering from a skull fracture and a brain injury.

The baby’s parents, Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22, were arrested and charged with felony abuse or neglect of a child.

During a Monday hearing, Mikala said the burn were caused by someone cleaning the infant’s face with a towel that contained a cleaning chemical.

She pleaded the Fifth Amendment when asked about the baby’s other injuries. Derek didn’t testify at all.

However, a social services agent did testify at the hearing. She said that Mikala told her that the head injury was probably the result of Derek dropping the baby while imitating something he saw on a television commercial.

Even more shocking, she told the worker she believed Derek had put the baby in the microwave then turned it on “for a short period of time.”

Derek and Mikala are both being held in the St.…

ALTA VISTA, IA – An Alta Vista couple has been charged with murder after the maggot-riddled body of their severely neglected 4-month-old child was found in a baby swing at the family’s apartment in Iowa.

Zachary Paul Koehn, 28, and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Cheyanne Renae Harris, had the bracelets slapped on this past Wednesday when they were charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment.

According to court records, their son, Sterling Daniel Koehn, was found dead Aug. 30 after Zachary Koehn called 911 requesting an ambulance come to the couple’s home.

When Chickasaw County sheriff’s deputies and medics arrived, they found the deceased infant sitting in a powered baby swing, according to the criminal complaints. Sterling was found in a bedroom separate from where Koehn, Harris and their older child slept.

No report of whether the room had an Air Wick, though autopsy results suggest it must’ve been getting pretty ripe in there.

When deputies first arrived at the couple’s apartment, Koehn reportedly told them that Harris had fed Sterling that morning and, “he was fine.”

Koehn claimed that when Harris checked on their son a few hours later, he had died, according to the complaint.…

PENSACOLA, FL – An 8-year-old girl was killed after her 325-pound cousin sat on her for misbehaving.

Last Saturday, 69-year-old Grace Smith was having some issues disciplining her daughter, 8-year-old Dericka Lindsay.

Deciding she needed some help, Smith called the girl’s cousin, 64-year-old Veronica Posey, for some backup.

When Posey came over, she hit Lindsay with a ruler and metal pipe before the girl ran to an armchair.

Seizing the opportunity to calm the child down while exerting little to no effort, Posey held the girl on the chair by plopping her fat ass on top of her.

After about 10 minutes, the girl complained from underneath her cousin’s mud flaps that she could not breathe. Posey stayed on top of the girl for another two minutes before getting up and realizing Lindsay was not breathing.

Posey called 911 and performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but it was too late — the poor girl would be pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police arrested Posey and charged her with homicide and cruelty toward a child.…

SAN ANTONIO, TX – A woman charged in her daughter’s death told police she didn’t call 911 for her dying daughter because her cell phone was low on minutes.

According to reports, 34-year-old Jessica Briones brought her 4-year-old daughter, Olivia, to a San Antonio police substation with severe head trauma.

She told officers that her daughter fell and hit her head four days ago but was now vomiting and would not wake up.

When asked why didn’t she call 911 immediately, Briones allegedly stated she couldn’t find her cell phone and that she was low on minutes.

Olivia would die the next day at the hospital, where doctors would find the girl had suffered injuries that were not consistent with a fall.

Along with multiple brain bleeds and severe brain swelling, Olivia also had a swollen nose, eight scars on the back of her head, a black eye, deflated left lung, a fractured vertebrae, a swollen wrist and two swollen arms, a bruised ankle and detached tissue in her upper lip from her gums.…

WICHITA, KS – A couple have been arrested after the woman’s 3-year-old boy was found decomposing inside a block of concrete.

Miranda Miller, 36, and her boyfriend Stephen Bodine, 40, have been arrested after their ex-landlord found a cement structure inside the house they were evicted from that had a child’s body decomposing inside it.

Reports state that a landlord cleaning his property stumbled on what looked like a large cement coffin with a foul-smelling odor coming from it. He alerted police who had to bring in a forklift to remove it from the house.

Inside they would find the remains of what is, more than likely, 3-year-old Evan Brewer — who has been missing since July.

In March, Carlo Brewer contacted the Department of Children and Families claiming that his son was being abused by Miller. DCF opened an investigation and on July 6, the court had awarded a protection of abuse order for Carlo on his behalf of his son.

Incidentally, that is last day Evan was ever seen and Brewer has been trying to locate Evan ever since.…

ALLOWAY, NJ – A woman has been arrested after she passed out in the front seat of her car for hours and her 2-year-old daughter fatally injured herself while trying to escape her car seat.

Deanna Joseph, 39, called 911 around 9:45 p.m. to report her daughter was unresponsive. When police arrived at the scene they found the girl dead in her car seat in a car running in the driveway.

After questioning Joseph, police determined she had pulled into her driveway and passed out for hours with the car running and the heater running. During this time, her daughter struggled to get out of her car seat and may have accidentally hanged herself in the straps.

Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan said the child had no obvious signs of blunt force trauma and the exact cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office. My guess it will be either asphyxiation, heat exhaustion or a combination of both.

Joseph was charged with second-degree child endangerment, charges that I am sure will be upgraded once an official cause of death is determined, and especially considering Joseph’s history of doing this exact, same thing multiple times in the past.…

PHOENIX, AZ – This is a wonderful update to a story I first reported on back in 2011. One of the women responsible for the death of 10-year-old Ame Deal was just handed the death sentence.

For those of you who may not know of Ame and her horrific death, she was one of a dozen children living in a three-bedroom house with 10 adults.

These adults included Ame’s father, David Deal, her grandmother, Judith Deal, her aunt and legal guardian, Cynthia Stoltzmann,  Stoltzmann’s daughter, Sammantha, and Sammantha’s husband, John Allen.

If you want to get a more in-depth overview of Ame’s fucked up family dynamics, I suggest checking out the Wikipedia article on her murder. Honestly, it’s too much of a mess for me to type out and not the point of this article.

Anyway, all of the kids in the home were abused and neglected in some fashion, but Ame reportedly took the brunt of it. She was beaten, forced to crush aluminum cans barefoot, drink hot sauce, and was even once forced to eat dog shit.…

CHINLE, AZ – The 23-year-old woman who killed her 17-month-old daughter by stranding her in the desert will spend the next 20 years in prison.

Last September, Ashley Attson placed her daughter in a stroller, then pushed her into the desert on the Navajo Reservation. Attson left the poor girl there for four days and nights.

During those days  and nights that her daughter died alone in an absolutely horrendous fashion, Attson stayed busy.

“Over the next few days, she met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. “When she returned, the child was dead.”

Two days after finding her daughter dead, Attson returned and buried the girl’s body in an animal hole.

What’s worse is that Attson only gained custody of the girl two months before she killed her. Her daughter had been in the care of tribal social services for most of her life after being born with meth in her system.

While handing her a 20 year prison sentence, Judge Campbell called the girl’s death an “intentional, cold-hearted, horrendous killing of an innocent child.”…

WYOMING, MI – Police have arrested a woman after they say she starved her infant to death as he sat strapped in a car seat inside her apartment.

On July 19, 22-year-old Lovily Johnson showed up at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital with the corpse of her six-month-old son, Noah Johnson.

“Upon arrival, Noah was clearly deceased and had been for some time,” Wyoming Detective Robert Meredith wrote in a probable cause affidavit.

Meredith also wrote that Johnson admitted to intentionally depriving Noah of food and left him strapped in a car seat for several days on the upper floor of her apartment with no air conditioning.

Johnson was arrested several hours later and charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. She is being held without bond until her probable cause hearing on Aug. 2.

Johnson also as a 2-year-old daughter who has been placed under the supervision of the state.

If an infant starving to death while strapped in a car seat sounds familiar, you may be thinking of a similar case we reported on back in 2008.…

TUCKER, GA – Police have arrested a 25-year-old woman after she left her one-year-old daughter in a hot car for six hours while she was getting her hair done.

Police say Dijanelle Fowler arrived at her hair appointment at 10:04AM on June 15, and left her daughter, Skylar, in the car with the air conditioning on.

A short time after entering the salon, her car died and Skylar would slowly cook to death as the temperatures outside reached 90 degrees.

At no time during the six hours Fowler was in the salon did she ever come out and check on her daughter.

Now here’s where things get even worse. After arriving at her car and finding her daughter dead, police believe she hid her daughter’s body with clothes and got a man from inside the salon to help her get her car started.

She then texted Skylar’s godfather and informed him she was going to go to the hospital because she was suffering severe headaches. During this time, Fowler was also Googling “seizure symptoms”.…
