A woman and her boyfriend are in jail for the death of the woman’s 12-year-old brother. The woman and her boyfriend reportedly forced the boy to stand outside in almost 100 degree weather holding a paint bucket as a punishment. The boy was given no water to drink. The couple was charged with felony murder and cruelty to children. Officials say the boy died from a heat stroke.
It has also been reported that the boy was kicked several times in the head by the woman’s boyfriend. A neighbor caught the beating on tape and has given it to the police.
Just plain sad.
