Toddler Beaten to Death by a 9-Year Old

Tragedy has struck in St. Louis, where a baby has been beaten to death by a nine-year old boy.  The baby was just 14-months and police are trying to understand what happened.  Until the investigation is concluded, the 9-year old has been taken into custody by child protective services.


Associate Judge Walter Brandon is charging the boy as a juvenile in the beating death of the infant.   The boy’s defense attorney, Bill Walker, says that the child’s mother and grandmother died.  Additionally, the boy has no relatives to lean on, since every person of significance in his life has been charged with child endangerment.

The adults have been charged for leaving the 9-year old in the company of three other children, with all of the kids being unsupervised.  This is the environment that led to the baby being killed.   The boy is undergoing psychiatric evaluation, and the primary issue for the judge is his age.

Make sure you protect your children, especially if they are with baby sitters.  At Your Black World, we regularly write about situations where children are beaten, molested or have other things happen right under their parents’ noses.  Be thoughtful about good parenting.

    Yes, this is such a very sad story. I’m reminded what Jesus said on his way to his cruxifiction, ” don’t weep for me; weep for your children”. That’s why it’s good to do what the Word of God says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6 KJV).

    Sad? I feel for the 9yr old but whoever are the adults in the situation should have been acting in that boys interests long before this happened. Go on youtube and you’ll see atrocious baby sitters and their kids and what these adults allow to happen among kids. The adults are feral and they raise feral children. This ain’t a color thing (for all you racists out there). It’s trust and proximity that is the cause. We didn’t trust our kids to anyone. Never would. We raised our son right. Period.

    I hope the adults are charged with negligent homicide. I hope the kid gets help.

    Thank God I am not the judge. I wouldn’t know what to do or say! Tears streaming to a broken world. We have to do something. This is sooooooooooo sad! What do we do? Yes we all got to pray. But what real action, we as brothers and sisters DOOOOOOOOOOOOOO? Those with compassionate hearts usually have no money to build or do nothing but pray, those whom are wealthy sit around and wonder and DO NOTHING! What is there to be done?????? JESUS COME TO RESCUE!!!
