MI - Muskegon couple starved, abused child - child survived
Grim details of charges against parents of brain-injured, malnourished baby outlined in court files
The baby whose parents are accused of abusing him since birth was not breathing when he arrived at the hospital in December.
Authorities say a Fruitport Township couple has been abusing their baby since he was born.
A couple of real winners, right here in my own backyard. They almost killed their own tiny little baby. Dad admits to "playing rough" with the little guy while mom just watched. Oh, and they didn't feed him.
Mom is looking at a lighter sentence. Because she didn't actually bash little Oryn into the furniture. She just watched, and neglected to feed him. Whatever. They sicken me.

The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

I know many won't agree with me but i'm sorry these two look developmentally delayed and should not have been allowed to take that helpless infant home after birth.

I see a few piercings and maybe some tattoos, typical young people.
I see no indication of developmental disability.
However, I have an 11 year old daughter with Down syndrome.
She knows how to feed, change and be gentle with a baby.

Chief 60th District Judge Maria Ladas Hoopes ruled that the office has a conflict of interest because it also represents the baby – the alleged victim of severe child abuse by his parents -- in a child neglect/abuse case in Family Court.Randee and Kevin Bastian last week voluntarily agreed to termination of their parental rights in Family Court, but only conditionally while the criminal cases are pending, Maat said in court. If either parent should be acquitted or have the criminal case dropped, he or she could petition to have parental rights restored.

Five months old... head injuries... Poor little guy. But he's safe now.
At that age, he's likely to make a full recovery, too. His brain is still growing and repairing itself. Things are looking up now that he's got good food, medical care, and TLC. Even if he ends up with some issues--he's safe now. There's no way they'll let those "parents" have him back. He's young enough, I bet he gets adopted and grows up in a proper loving home. He deserves no less.
And his so-called parents deserve to spend the rest of their pitiful lives in prison, where they can never touch another child again.
I think what we ought to do when a disabled parent has a baby is to make sure they get whatever help they need, whether that's a live-in caretaker or just adapted baby equipment. All you need to be a good parent is to love the baby, to be gentle, to know when to ask for help.Autism Memorial: Remembering Autistic Crime Victims

So he'll be in prison for at least 3 1/2 more years, hopefully longer. Glad to hear the little baby is doing well.
Muskegon County 14th Circuit Judge Timothy G. Hicks on Monday, March 23, sentenced Kevin Lee Bastian to between 3 ½ and 21 years in the Michigan Department of Corrections for first-degree child abuse. Bastian, 26, received credit for 388 days he had already spent in the Muskegon County Jail.
According to the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office, the child's current caretaker reports he has made a full recovery, but doctors warn that impairments may not be discovered until later in life. The child, now about 18 months old, is being well cared for under the supervision of Muskegon County Family Court and the Department of Human Services, according to the prosecutor's office.
