    Report: Child was murdered

    A death certificate presented in town court on Monday ruled that 3-year-old Stephen McKay was murdered.

    A preliminary autopsy report released with it said the boy died of blunt trauma to the extremities, torso, closed head injuries, a lacerated pancreas and had sustained a fracture of the left forearm, abrasions, contusions and swelling of the brain causing post cardiopulmonary arrest.

    The toddler, who lived on Route 9N in Crown Point with his mother, Janina McDonald, 23, and her live-in boyfriend, Greggary L. Varmette, 21, died on Thursday, Aug. 4 at 7:08 a.m. at Fletcher Allen Health Center in Burlington.

    The child was brought by ambulance to Moses Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga, according to police records, after McDonald returned home after work at 11 p.m. the night before and found her son unresponsive.

    He had been under Varmette's care during the day.

    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?

    How horrible. The stories that man told to try to explain the injuries to that poor child were pathetic. I hope he doesn't get less time because of his military injuries.

    It is very unnescesary to put "mommy's boyfriend". I guess a single mom is suppose to not date until their child is 18 and out of the home. Do you actually think that if these women had ANY idea at all that their child were in danger with a murderer they would date them???

    I disagree. Weren't these guys "mommy's boyfriend"? Was the phrase incorrect?

    I don't think those women had much idea about these guys at all because they DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME NECESSARY TO GET TO KNOW THEM.

    For crying out loud Jeana, look how many couples that are married commit the same type of crime!

    It's unfair to say "they didn't take the time necessary to get to know them"...........how long did you get to know your boyfriends when you were young, or your husband?

    Yet again I state "Should they wait until their child is 18 and moved out of the house before they could ever date again". You have no idea how much they know about a person. Oh because they didn't know they were a psychotic piece of ***** then they didn't get to know them. Yeah the phrase is incorrect. That to me means you are putting blame on the mothers. Damn the men for not telling the mom's up front that they were murderers. Their fault huh.

    When you have a child, you have to put the child's interests first, not yours. If that means waiting until the child is 18 and out of the house to date, then so be it.

    IMO, this wasn't an Ozzie and Harriett lifestyle gone bad. I bet there were red flags all over the place long before this innocent child was beaten to death.

    Honestly, yes they should. When you bring children into this world they become your #1 priority. If they must date fine, but don't bring them home to your bed & leave him around your children ALONE.

    That is quite an extreme opinion. I don't advocate leaving your child with every Tom Dick and Harry, but it's ridiculous to expect a young woman to have no companionship for 18 years.

    Perhaps it is extreme. Why can't a young woman be responsible? Why before conceiving a child didn't she consider her support system? Why can't she date? No one said she couldn't have companionship. Why must she live with Tom, Dick or Harry? What can't she ask Tom to submit to a criminal background check complete with fingerprints?

    They didn't take the time.

    As for me, while its none of your business, I'll answer your question. When I was a single parent, I knew the man that would become my second husband for one year before I even started dating him. I dated him for one year before he ever met my son and then married him two years after that. My son was nearly 10 years old at the time as well - old enough to be able to say if something had been happening.

    That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying they should get to know the man BEFORE THEY EVER BRING HIM AROUND THEIR CHILD.

    If parents don't put their children in situations where they can be hurt, they won't be hurt. I'm not saying everything is preventable, but having your child murdered in his or her own home because they allow men they've only known for a few months live in or watch their children, then that situation is preventable - 100% preventable.
