Default Colored boy dun beat mammy wif bat den started her on fire wif Molotov cocktail


Teen charged as an adult after he's accused of setting his mom on fire and beating her


A 17-year-old boy accused of trying to murder his mother by hitting her with a bat and using a Molotov cocktail to set her on fire was charged as an adult by the Broward state attorney’s office.

Davie police say that on Jan. 22, James Edward Monroe filled a glass bottle with alcohol, capped it with a rag and threw it at his sleeping mother’s bedroom ceiling. The bottle burst apart and caused glass and fire to fall on her. Harolyn Monroe was burned and then beaten by her son, who also tried to use a knife against her, according to a police report.

Because of the amount of blood at the scene, officers initially thought the mother had been stabbed. She had cuts on her hands and had grabbed a butcher knife from her son, breaking off the blade, Davie Police Sgt. Mark Leone said.

The violence happened after the mother spoke to her son about sneaking out at night and his use of social media, the police report said.
