lonnell-mcdonaldDALLAS, TX – One of the individuals accused of jumping on a pregnant teen’s stomach to successfully force an abortion after she was raped, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Lonnell McDonald was found guilty on Friday and sentenced to 10 years in prison for aggravated assault. The 28-year-old is still facing a pending charge for conspiracy to commit capital murder.

For any of you who may have missed the original story, the victim was raped and impregnated by her older brother in 2012 when she was just 14-years-old. She did not report the crime because she was embarrassed, but five months later her family could see that she was pregnant.

Fearing other children in the home would be removed by CPS if the details surrounding the girl’s pregnancy were investigated, the family decided to hide the crime. At first, 45-year-old Sharon Jones tried giving the girl multiple doses of birth control pills, emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets.

When none of these methods killed the baby, the family decided the only course of action was to beat the baby out of her.…

caroline-woodsCHICAGO, IL – Police have arrested 24-year-old Caroline Woods after they say she and her boyfriend tortured her 7-year-old-son for two years.

The boy was found Sunday morning, running down the street in a dirty diaper. He told authorities that his mother and her boyfriend forced him to live in a closet, beat him regularly, and fed him only protein shakes and cans of okra.

Prosecutors say the boy claimed to have been beaten with an extension cord, a pole, and a baseball bat. Even more disturbing is the boy’s claims that he was once forced to sit on the stove as his genitals were burned with a curling iron.

These allegations were later backed up by a court-appointed doctor who examined the boy and said that the he had the most injuries he had ever seen on one person. The boy and his 2-year-old sister are now in state custody.

Woods was arrested and charged with assault. She was denied bail by the judge who called her actions “depraved” and told Woods she was “a danger to society.” Police are still looking for her boyfriend.…

antonia-lopezOMAHA, NE – Police have charged a 16-year-old girl after she gave birth to a premature infant then killed it by tossing the newborn out of her second-story window.

Police say that on Friday night Antonia Lopez was alone in her bedroom when she gave birth to a baby girl who weighed two pounds and was 14 inches.

Afterwards, Lopez killed the infant by throwing it out of her second-floor window. She would end up confessing what she had done to her mother, who went outside and located the baby.

Lopez’ mother called police and performed CPR on the baby until help arrived, but the infant would be pronounced dead at the hospital. An official cause of death will not be released until after the baby’s autopsy has been completed.

The teen is now facing felony child abuse resulting in death, and will be charged as an adult. She was placed in the Douglas County Youth Center after going to the hospital for a medical evaluation.

Friends and family say they are shocked at the allegations and say they had no idea the girl was pregnant.…

Erica ParsonsROWAN COUNTY, NC – Five years after she disappeared, and three years after she was reported missing, the skeletal remains of 13-year-old Erica Parsons have been found.

For those of you who may not remember this case, here’s a quick refresher:

Erica was adopted by Casey and Sandy Parsons when she was two weeks old. In 2013, Erica’s step-brother reported her missing, but investigators would learn no one had seen the girl since 2011.

Casey and Sandy said they’d sent her to live with a relative in Asheville, but it turned out the relative didn’t exist. Over the next several months, police searched several properties but could not find Erica.

In 2014, Casey and Sandy were convicted on 76 federal charges for taking benefits for adoption assistance during the time Erica was missing. Casey was sentenced to 10 years, and Sandy was sentenced to eight years.

In July, Erica’s aunt and adoptive sister said they believed Erica was dead and that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew where Erica’s body was located.…

nicholas-kernechelNORRISTOWN, PA – Nicholas Kernechel, 28, has been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for beating his ex-girlfriend’s four-year-old autistic son and extracting three of his teeth.

The incident happened last year after the boy’s mother left him in the care of Kernechel while she went out with friends. The next morning, she found her son sleeping on his bedroom floor with his face beaten, lips swollen and missing three teeth.

The boy told his mother that Kernechel was responsible for his injuries and that he was not nice.

She rushed the boy to the hospital and brought along a bag containing the boy’s teeth. “The teeth were bloody but intact, from the tooth through the top of the root,” authorities said in a statement. A medical examination indicated that his “teeth were pulled out.”

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said the teeth were “physically extracted, removed from his mouth, forcefully” and that afterward, Kernechel left the boy “to suffer overnight until the morning when his mother found him and saw what had been done.”

When interviewed, Kernechel first told officers he had no idea how the boy was injured.…

sonya-dubrayRAPID CITY, SD – The grandmother of a 2-year-old boy who was allegedly killed by his mother due to potty-training issues, has been arrested and charged with helping her daughter cover up the boy’s beating death.

For those of you who may have missed this story earlier this year, 28-year-old Katrina Shangreaux allegedly beat her son to death after he had an accident while potty training at his grandmother’s house.

According to court documents the toddler had “multiple bruises on his body, some appeared older and some new. He also had multiple bite marks on his body and what appeared to be marks from a belt.”

Even more disturbing was the fact that the boy’s scrotum was torn and there was hair wrapped around his genitals.

Shangreaux would eventually be charged with murder and child abuse; charges she has since pleaded not guilty to. Now federal authorities have arrested Shangreaux’s mother, 47-year-old Sonya Dubray, accusing her of covering up the crime.

She allegedly washed Kylen’s clothes, cleaned up the crime scene, and lied about alleged abuse against the boy, and told authorities Kylen was already potty-trained.…

swimming poolMORELIA, MEXICO – The man captured on camera drowning his 3-year-old stepdaughter by repeatedly throwing her into a hotel swimming pool has been jailed for 100 years.

For those of you who missed the original story last year, Jose David N. was staying with a woman and her daughter at a popular hotel last August when he took the girl to the pool after her mother fell asleep.

As you can see for yourself in the video below, Jose repeatedly throws the girl in the pool even though he knows she cannot swim. Sometimes he just drops her in the water, while other times he haphazardly slings her out into the middle of the pool.

Each time he does this, he nonchalantly walks around the edge of the pool or swims around her as she frantically tries to keep her head above water. With each toss, her attempts at swimming become weaker and weaker.

The video also shows Jose holding the girl under water for significant periods of time while other people in the pool nearby do nothing. …

yva-monordGAINESVILLE, FL – Police have arrested 22-year-old Yva Monord after she was accused of throwing boiling water on her boyfriend and their 2-month-old son as they were lying in bed.

According to police, Monord admitted she was pissed at her sleeping boyfriend over some “infidelity issues” and decided to give him an “abrupt awakening.”

After boiling some water in a pot normally used to sterilize their son’s bottles, she tossed the water on 23-year-old Winsky Perpignan as he was in bed under the covers. He ended up suffering significant burns to his right arm, upper torso, stomach, back and face.

What Monord did not realize, for some reason, was that her boyfriend was not alone in the bed. Their son was sleeping beside him and was also doused with the boiling water. The baby ended suffering second-degree burns to his chest and left arm that could require skin grafting.

After initially denying purposefully pouring the water on her boyfriend, she finally admitted the truth.

“In the beginning of the investigation, she said it was an accident, but we found some inconsistencies in the story there and started digging a little deeper, and that’s when we were able to determine it was an intentional act and that she had done it on purpose,” Gainesville Police Department spokesman Officer Ben Tobias said.…

On August 31, 4-year-old Amarrah Reynolds was rushed to the hospital in an unresponsive state and would be pronounced dead later that same day.

When she was brought in, there were bruises and scars all over her body. There were also “injuries to the inside of her thigh appear consistent with severe pinch marks that punctured the flesh.”

When questioned by police, Reynolds stated he “just killed his daughter” and admitted to police that he routinely beat the girl with a belt for the last two years. During this last beating, Reynolds said he used a belt to strike the girl in the head body and legs so many times that he lost count.

Even worse is the fact that this years long torture was witnessed by the girl’s mother, 26-year-old Dalvon Taylor.…

Police were called to an apartment complex after receiving a call about a man sleeping in one of the complex’s storage unit who smelled like piss and was carrying an assault rile.

On Saturday, Morris was babysitting 4-month-old Emersyn Morris while his girlfriend, Jenny Anderson, was at work.

Anderson tried to contact Morris multiple times throughout the day but no one would hear from Morris until almost 5 pm when he called Anderson and his mother.
