Mother charged with killing her 5 year old son

(Jackson County, MS) March 2 - A Gulf Coast mother is charged with capital murder for allegedly killing her 5-year old boy. Police spent hours searching Tuesday near the boy's home in Escatawpa off Highway 613.

The body of Kenderick Broadhead was recovered Tuesday night in a rural area of Harrison County near Pass Christian.

Deputies with the Jackson County Sheriff's department will be outside the house where the five year old lived with his mother and older sister until Wednesday morning.

Neighbors in the quiet residential nei
ghborhood are stunned. "I've lived here all my life and never seen anything like this. I've seen police cars, this and that but nothing like what's going on behind us here." said Brent Knowles.

The boy was reported missing early Tuesday morning. Neighbors were notified by a computerized call. Cheryl Thomas described the call, "Alerting it was a 5 year old black little boy missing. They was gonna be in the area looking with helicopters and stuff with dogs and search the area."

The search was called off hours later. Investigators suspected foul play and began a criminal investigation.

Knowles said, "There's no way a 5 year old child did anything to deserve getting beat much less getting killed and dumped in a dirt pit somewhere in another county. That's just bad."

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd said the boy's 27 year old mother, Towander Broadhead, is charged with his murder. Her 43 year old boyfriend, Willie Thomas, is charged with accessory to murder.

"I
t's horrible, words can't describe how it makes you feel that those people live beside you and you don't know it." said Evelyn Knowles.


The owner of the house said the family was renting the house and moved in less than two months ago. Investigators said Willie Thomas led police to the boy's body.

The medical examiner's report is expected to be complete sometime Wednesday.

I understand your indecision as all are fitting choices. I myself find it a toss up between "Typical Negro fambly values" and "Dare go da welfare check".

Oakland Park parents charged in beating death of their toddler

Broward Sheriff's Office homicide detectives late Friday night arrested and charged the parents of a 3-year-old with beating her to death.

Oakland Park Fire Rescue medics responded to a 911 call Friday morning at the home of Jonas and Lineda Julien and rushed their daughter, Ediana, to Holy Cross Hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead. The girl died from multiple blunt trauma inflicted over a long period of time, the Medical Examiner's Office said.

The 33-year-old mother and 37-year-old father told detectives that Ediana inflicted the injuries on herself, but the autopsy results contradict the parents' statement, Sheriff's Office spokeswoma
n Veda Coleman-Wright said.

The child suffered a number of "extensive internal injuries in various stages of healing," including internal bleeding, a rib fracture, a lacerated liver, and contusions to the abdomen, lung, shoulder, neck, buttocks, legs and scalp, Coleman-Wright said Saturday.

"At the same time, the parents are telling us the daughter has been in their sole care," Coleman-Wright said. "If they were the only ones caring for her, someone has to take responsibility. We're placing the blame on the parents and arrested them for her murder."

The alleged nature of the beating death made the news even more troubling to neighbor Jenny Lane, who shared an inside wall with the family.

"That's what's so troubling about this case," she said. "If they were noisy alcoholics, okay. But they were clean cut, quiet people."

It was the second time this week a child died at the hands of a parent, the Sheriff's Office said.

In the other case this week, detectives on Thursday
charged Katrina Ferguson, 25, with starving her infant son to death, then burying him near her Lauderdale Lakes home.

The baby, Trinaud Robinson, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces when he was born Nov. 16, and 5 pounds, 4 ounces when he was exhumed Wednesday, Coleman-Wright said.

There were 810 homicide victims younger than 14 in the year 2000, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Nearly 75 percent of those killed were younger than 5. Between 1976 and 2000, 84 percent of all children younger than 5 were killed by a mother, a father or a male acquaintance.

In both of this week's cases, investigators found evidence that the dead children's siblings had been abused, too.

Ferguson's 1-year-old daughter appeared to be malnourished, two officials familiar with the case said. The girl also had burns on her body, as did some of the other three children, ages 2, 5 and 6, one of the officials said.

At an emergency court hearing Saturday morning to have the Oakland Park girl's
siblings placed in temporary state custody, Richard Kaplan, a lawyer for the state Attorney General's Office, said the dead girl's twin brother had loop marks on his body, indicating he had been beaten recently by something like a belt or an extension cord.

Investigators did not find marks on the older brothers, ages 8 and 6, the Sheriff's Office said, but they will be examined by doctors on Monday.

Dr. Walter F. Lambert, medical director of Miami-Dade's Child Protection Team, said if one child is killed, all of the children need to be
examined thoroughly. Striking an older child might not cause as much injury as it would to a 3-year-old, Lambert said, and the older children might be able to run away or escape more easily than a younger child.

Lambert has also seen cases where parents get frustrated and go too far with children because they cannot handle the behaviors exhibited at that age.

"I have 6 children," Lambert said. "A lot of people think teenagers are hard. I find pre-adolescents
to be hard. I think teenagers are great."

Relatives say woman charged with murder of her son is being mistreated in jail

(PASCAGOULA, Miss.) March 8 -- A local mother is behind bars, accused of murdering her 5-year-old son. He was buried this past weekend in Mobile. Now, relatives claim the mother is being treated unfairly in a Mississippi jail.

Towander Broadhead's cousin, who asked not to be identified, says "It's just like they are trying to kill her. The
're just beating her in the jail."

Broadhead is in custody at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center. The cousin says she finds it hard to believe Towander could kill her own child. "I don't know what she was going through but I know she loved him and he loved his mother."

Kendrick Bro
adhead's body was found last week in Harrison County, Mississippi after Towander reported him missing from their home in Escatawpa. Now her cousin says the inmates and the officers are retaliating against her. "They won't give her towels to wash her face."

Officials at the jail, however, dispute that. Major Randy McClendon, Administrator of the showed NBC 15 news a picture from a surveillance tape from the A-D-C. It shows Towanda walking to the shower with a towel draped over her shoulder. "There is nothing here to support those allegations. We have a 24 hour surveillance system."

Her cousin also alleges that Towander is not being fed. Major Mcclendon disputes that, as well. "I specifically asked if she refused trays and the answer was no."

In fact, the only thing McClendon will confirm is that inmates had made remarks about her. So jail officials called in a person to minister to the inmates. "It happens, especially when children are involved. We wanted them to understand she is
innocent until proven guilty."


Meantime, Towander's cousin says Kendrick's death and Towanda's incarceration has been especially hard on Towanda's 10 year old daughter Royeesha. ”It's not a day that she doesn't ask about her and want to see her. And she asks why they are jumping on her; she has so much love for her mother."

Broadhead's boyfriend, 43-year-old Willie Thomas, is charged as an accessory to capital murder. The family moved to Mississippi from Prichard about 6 weeks ago.

Dat po' old mammy! Somebody please throw her bail so she can lub Royeesha like she did da utter one.

Mother Facing Charges in Daughter's Torture, Death

DECATUR -- A DeKalb County grand jury has accused the mother of a 4-year-old girl and the woman's roommate with the child's death in January.

The grand jury said Thursday that for two days before she died, Rita Moody was gagged, bound at the wrists and ankles, beaten with a leather strap and sexually assaulted with a wooden pole.

Rita's mother, Demetre Evans, 29, and Oshadotaive Roberson, 27, were charged with murder, child cruelty and aggravated sexual battery.

Four other children were in and out of the a
artment near Decatur as the torture took place the weekend of Jan. 24-25, District Attorney Jeffrey Brickman said.


Brickman said he could not discuss what the other children may have witnessed bu
t sa
id Roberson's 16-year-old sister finally called 911. Rita
was pronounced dead at DeKalb Medical Center early Jan. 26.


A spokeswoman for the Department of Human Resources, Elizabeth Wilson, said an administrative review of the case is scheduled next week.

Man gets 20 years for death of infant

Convicted in January of manslaughter in the death of a 3-month-old infant born to a crack-addicted mother, Likeyous Gerard Wiggins was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison.

At his sentencing hearing, Wiggins did not dwell on the baby girl, Raven Mitchell, but told Mobile County Circuit Judge Joseph "Rusty" Johnston he should not be made to go to prison for her death.

His attorney, Tom Haas, quickly pointed out to Johnston that his client's remarks were based on Wiggins' consistent belief in his i
nocence in the February 2003 death of the girl, who died of head trauma.

As he had argued during the trial, Haas said that Wiggins did not intentionally kill the child.

Wiggins was guilty of

"stupidity,"
Haas again said Friday, and suggested that his cl
ient had been convicted "for something he did in his sleep."

According to Wiggins' testimony in January, the baby shared a bed with him and his girlfriend. On Feb. 8, 2002, she was injured when she apparently fell out of the bed, he said.

Medical witnesses for the prosecution testified her inju ries could not have come from a mere fall from a bed, but Haas presented his own medical witness who said it could have happened that way, given her young age.

The couple was keeping the baby because the baby's mother was a crack cocaine addict, witnesses said. Raven was the 13th child of the woman, according to testimony.

While his girlfriend was at school, Wiggins said during
his trial, he went to sleep, awoke, found the baby girl on the floor, and even though the baby was torpid and lethargic and not moving, bathed her, changed her diapers, laid her back on the bed, then
played vide
o games.


Only when the girlfriend came home was 911 called and medical help sought for the
child.

Haas had argued that Wiggins' lack of skills, education and common sense did not make him guilty of murder, which was the original charge.

Assistant District Attorney Ashley Rich told Johnston that Wiggins is "a danger to ... children he's around" and cared so little about the child that he played "Game Boy" while she was dying.

"Nothing could be done once it happened," Haas said of the child's injuries. "She was doomed from then on."

Johnston called the child's death "a sad case, and a strange case," then gave Wiggins the 20-year sentence for which Rich had asked.

Hinesville woman charged in death of 3-year-old daughter

A Hinesville woman has been charged in the November death of her 3-year-old daughter.

Hinesville Police Detective Tracey Howard said autopsy results showed the death of Kiyanna Mone Campbell was a homicide. Howard declined to specify how the child was killed. Her death was initially believed to be an accidental drowning.

"Injuries found on the infant's body were found to be consistent wit
child abuse," Howard said.

Kamisha Macine Campbell, 30, of 415 Gassaway St., was charged earlier this month with murder and cruelty to children.

At 8:50 p.m. Nov. 12, emergency me
dica
l personnel and police responded to reports of a bathtub drowning at Campbell's previous home at 402 Gassaway
St.

According to a report filed by Hinesville police officer James Dunn, the girl's mother told him, "She was running the bath water for the kids and that she was extremely hungry to the extent she felt faint. She went into the kitchen and put a sandwich into the microwave to warm it up. When she returned into the bathroom, she found Kiyanna lying on her side facing the wall floating."

The child was taken to Liberty Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

A four-month investigation concluded that Campbell was home alone with three of her four children at the time of death, Howard said.

The other two children who lived with her wer
e removed from the home following the death and placed in the care of their grandparents.

Campbell was denied bond following a first appearance before Liberty County Magistrate Jimmy Bomare.

Uncle pleads guilty in shooting death of tot

HILLSBOROUGH -- A man accused of inadvertently killing his toddler nephew during a Christmas Eve dispute over disciplining a child pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from the shooting.

Lashanta Romaro Fearrington, 24, can expect to serve at least seven years in prison for the death of 18-month-old Measha Lamont Fearrington II and the wounding of James Long Edwards, the boyfriend of Jackie Mann, Fearrington's mother.

The child was killed when a bullet from Fearrington's gun passed through Edwards' leg and struck the child in the head.

Fearrington was charged originally with first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. The incident occurred Dec. 24, 2002, at the Orange County home shared by his mother and E
dwards.

Fearrington pleaded guilty Wednesday in Orange County Superior Court to the lesser charges of voluntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, along with a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. Fearrington is not allowed to have a gun outside his home because he was convicted on drug charges in 1997.

Fearrington's sentencing is set for March 29. Judge Wade Barber told Fearrington he would receive a penalty of seven to nine years at that hearing. But Barber warned Fearrington, who has been out on bail, that he would face a harsher sentence if he fails to appear. Barber also ordered Fearrington to have no contact with the toddler's mother, Chywan Holman
.

The shooting happened at 2208 Jo Mac Road during a holiday gathering, according to information presented by the prosecution. Among the children there was a toddler known as MJ, the son of Holman and Fearrington's older brother, Measha.

Edwards and Mann began fighting after Edwar
ds disciplined one of their children with a belt. Edwards, now 35, testified previously that Mann hit Edwards with the belt, asking him how it felt, according to Assistant District Attorney James Woodall. At one point, Edwards said he let go of the belt and Mann fell onto the bed.


Some children came into the room to see what was happening, but the two sent them away. When Edwards left the room, he saw Fearrington with a gun in his hand. Edwards told him to put the gun down, and the revolver went off as Edwards approached, according to Woodall.

"Almost immediately, he realized MJ had been shot in the head," Woodall said.
Fearrington's lawyer, public defender James Williams, said at earlier hearings that MJ's death was entirely accidental. Williams has said his client was armed to protect his mother from abuse at Edwards' hands.

Fearrington did not address the court aside from brief responses to the judge's questions.

Man who smothered infants given 30-year sentence

NORFOLK --A man who admitted he smothered two infants while sexually assaulting them 17 years ago was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison.

Tyrone M. Lee, 33, confessed the crimes to a polygraph examiner last year, after violating his probation on a 1999 charge of sexually assaulting another child.

According to court documents, Lee told the polygraph examiner that in February 1987 he covered the mouth and nose of his second cousin, 11-month-old Jerome D. Kearney, to keep him from crying while Lee commit
ed a sex act on him. Months later, Lee killed his 7-month-old niece, Ladina L. Johnson, in a similar way
.

Medical examiners originally ruled both cases sudden infant death syndrome, or crib deat

h. L
ee was 16 at the time of the killi
ngs.

The examiner, Michael Slezak, was asked in June to do a full-disclosure interview with Lee to help probation officers outline his treatment as a sexual offender. Lee had been found in violation of his probation because he spent the night in the same room as a 7-year-old boy less than 10 days after he got out of prison, despite a judge's order that he have no contact with children.
