    MT - Tavaris Edwards, 2 mos, beaten & strangled, Billings, 25 Dec 2014

    A two-month-old baby boy died in hospital two days after allegedly being beaten and strangled by his parents at their Montana home on Christmas Day.

    The unnamed infant was reportedly assaulted by his mother, Kayla Edwards, 23, and 29-year-old father, Brandon Edwards, at their house in Billings on Thursday evening.

    The medical responders observed suspicious injuries on the infant and notified law enforcement, police said.

    “The investigation revealed that the defendant struck her son in the head so hard that she caused a brain injury,” an affidavit of probable cause states. “The defendant then strangled her son to prevent him from breathing.”

    heinous beyond comprehension. Poor little guy. Small comfort that at most he suffered for two months and at least for a few hours before leaving this brief life.

    I don't know that I will ever wrap my head around some crimes. this is one.

    Wow, I'd feel blessed to spend Christmas with two month old twins. Guess we all do Christmas differently.

    I think I can't handle these while pregnant.
    Hormones and all, I can't wait to hold my baby.

    I am a bit nervous about having twins just because it'd be difficult.
    However I would actually love boy/girl twins...
    People just suck.

    I work with babies , in a daycare . There are times I have to care for 3 or 4 at a time , by myself . I would never harm a hair on them . Yes , it gets frustrating at times . Sometimes everyone is hungry , sleepy , wet at the same time . You don't hurt a small innocent baby because you can't deal ! ����

    October 2015:

    The Billings father of a baby who was killed by his mother on Christmas Day admitted he also abused the baby and his twin sister.
    Brandon Tory Edwards, 29, recently pleaded guilty to three felony charges, including two counts of aggravated assault and one count of assault on a minor.

    Brandon Edwards accepted a plea agreement in which prosecutors will recommend 30 years to the Montana State Prison, with 15 years suspended.

    Kayla Edwards was just sentenced to 60 years according to media reports, KTVQ. Sorry, don't know how to post. What is up with the deliberate torture of the twins, strapping them into their car seats and turning them upside down, leaving them suspended held in only by the straps. Wouldn't both babies have been screaming? I guess that is what this monster wanted. It seems these sickos thrive on dreaming up new ways to torture. I am at a loss..

    During lengthy testimony about mental health and anger problems, Kayla Jean Edwards said in court Thursday that she had worried that she might hurt herself or someone else.

    At the end of the hearing, Edwards was sentenced to 60 years in prison...


    In April, Brandon Edwards was sentenced to 15 years in prison for charges of assault on the children...


    Kayla Edwards' sentencing hearing on Thursday lasted more than three hours. William Woolston, a clinical psychologist, outlined a lengthy history of family troubles and mental health issues that plagued Edwards throughout her childhood.

    Edwards said that a stressful and impoverished family environment set the backdrop for her condition. There were constant treatments, family counseling sessions and stays at group homes throughout those years.
