Racine couple charged in 2-year-old's death

This is as bad as it gets.

A couple was charged today in the death of a 2-year-old boy in Racine. One of the suspects is the boy's mom. The criminal complaint released by police today details a pattern of severe abuse that led to the boy's death from strangulation. Here's the full criminal complaint, but be warned: It's horrible.

Also, please note the efforts of the police in this matter. It's a terrible thing to work a job that puts you close to the violent death - particularly of a child. The officers and investigators in this case deserve deep respect. They certainly have suffered through this case.


  1. appears to be a bad link in the story...

  2. If found guilty they should be put on a wall and shot on TV
    No excuse none, if crimes like this do not call for a renewal of the death penalty nothing does

  3. How horrible and sad that this could happen in this world. Things like this make you wonder if there is a God. I wish we could inflict the same pain on both of them as the child received. For goodness take very good care of P.B.
