Two sisters in the US city of Atlanta have been charged for murder, after beating a three year old toddler to death, after he took a cupcake from the Kitchen.
Horrific, despicable insanity, these are the only words without using profanity this writer can use to describe this act of immense cruelty directed at a small three year old little boy.
According to police Kejuan Mason, whilst left with his legal guardian Glenndria and her sister Lashirley Morris died from blunt force trauma to his head and body after being spanked by one and beaten with a baseball bat by the other.
Tragically we are informed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a local paper that only three days before his killing the young boy’s mother who, after losing her home had lost custody of Kejuan was attempting to move him away from the two sisters after noticing scratches and bruising on his body, this request was turned down by the court.
The two have been charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault and two other counts of cruelty in the first-degree.
Authors note: The two could face life in prison without parole if found guilty
