    PA - Donovan McKee, 11, beaten to death, Pittsburgh, 11 Feb 2012

    I didn't see this here. Poor baby.

    PITTSBURGH -- Authorities said a Pittsburgh man brutally beat his girlfriend's son to death because he hadn't vacuumed their Knoxville apartment.

    Investigators said 11-year-old Donovan McKee endured nine hours of abuse Saturday before his mother returned to their apartment at the Rochelle Towers on Knox Avenue after work.

    Wait a minute... you mean to tell me... a mother found out her boyfriend had beaten her child almost to death...
    and in response to that she refused to lie for him and called the police to get help for her dying child???
    Woah... what a concept!

    From March 2013:

    The judge had already handed down Cynthia McKee's sentence -- five to 10 years in prison for involuntary manslaughter for the death of her 11-year-old son. Still, the woman pleaded with Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Donna Jo McDaniel for a punishment other than incarceration...

    The judge refused, saying she has been unable to forget the photographs she saw of Donovan McKee's body -- battered, beaten and scarred -- after years of abuse by the woman's live-in boyfriend, Anthony Bush...

    Ms. McKee returned home from work on the evening of Feb. 11, 2012, to find Donovan lying on the couch cold and unresponsive... She didn't call 911 for an hour and 40 minutes.
    From April 2013:

    A Pittsburgh man was sentenced Monday to 23-47 years in prison for beating his girlfriend’s son to death in February 2012. A jury found Anthony Bush guilty in February of third-degree murder...

    Prosecutors said Bush was upset with 11-year-old Donovan McKee... and he beat him for nine hours with a pipe, barbells, belts and sticks. Authorities said Bush attempted to stitch up McKee's wounds with a crooked needle and thread before the boy died.
