    PA - Jamilah Starkey, 22, & Dy Azijah Nix, 7 mos, beaten to death, 30 June 2005

    A 7-month-old Chester Township girl severely beaten by her 6-foot-3, 300-pound relative has died after surviving for about 15 hours on life support at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Dy Azijah Nix, wrongly identified in first reports as Tanisha, was pronounced dead by the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office at 5 p.m. Thursday.

    The girl's pregnant mother, 22-year-old Jamilah Starkey, originally identified by police as Handy, of the 2300 block of Bethel Road, died at home of asphyxiation and multiple blunt-force injuries, according to the Delaware County medical examiner. Starkey's two other children, Joeionah Handy, 6, and Glenn Handy, 3, were in critical condition yesterday at Children's Hospital.

    Police said live-in cousin Lawrence James Richardson, 22, who had recently moved in with the family, used his bare hands to beat all four family members. Police said Richardson, who had recently been fired from his job at the Prospect Park Nursing Home, was let go because of "episodes" at work. He played a piano at the nursing home and would become enraged, police said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Why did she let him move in? This is so sad because it is obvious the man belonged in a mental hospital and not in the community.
