    Angry Bond hearing held for parents of dead toddler

    http://www.theitem.com/article/20090...WS01/903049993

    "A 23-year-old Sumter woman whose 17-month-old boy died Monday from starvation collapsed during a Wednesday afternoon bond hearing at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center, sobbing uncontrollably before being led back to her cell."

    Garbage, rats, feces etc inside home as these twins starved to death, one dead and one critical...and now she wants to pass out and holler she wants her babies...

    Why was she screaming for her kids? Does she not know what she did? I suspect drugs were involved. Maybe now that she's been in jail she's clean and finally realizes what has happened?

    Another article

    http://www.theitem.com/article/20090...WS01/703049980

    Patterson, speaking with reporters about 5:30 p.m., was obviously shaken as she described the filth of the house and how small and frail the little boy was when police officers arrived.

    "In my 30 years of being in law enforcement, this is probably one of the most horrific incidences I have witnessed," she said. "The size of the child, an 18-month-old -- there are some newborns who are larger than that child was."
    ETA: the article also says they have three other children, ages 9, 6 and 4

    WTF?!
    Sobbing and crying and collapsing, but she couldn't feed her kids?
    UNBELIEVEABLE.
    I hope they throw the book at her.

    The police report. That child only weighed 4 lbs !

    http://www2.theitem.com/extras/childdeath_report.pdf

    WTH! How could you not feed your child!!!!!!! What did the parents eat, what did the older children eat? Why didn't one of the older children give them food?

    I am sick about this!! How long does it take to starve to death?

    ETA: his twin sister weighed 9 lbs

    Children are a precious gift! If these monsters could spend months not feeding an innocent child, then they had time to relinquish the child to someone who would love & care for them. It's not that hard. Caring birth mothers & fathers do it all the time. That's how I was blessed with my two daughters. To starve this baby was inhumane! I bet they ate everyday!

    we had a similar case here in Australia

    http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/s...25-952,00.html

    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/news...770790319.html

    snipped

    Their mother later told police she had only ever fed the twins by bottle and changed them only occasionally.

    When asked why they had died she allegedly told police, "I don't think I fed them enough".

    Their father, a senior manager on a major city road project, claimed he had not seen or cared for the twins for six months despite living in the same house.

    Lawyers for the man have argued there is not enough evidence to support a murder charge because he did not have responsibility for the childen's care.
    Except these twins were DEAD in the front loungeroom for over a WEEK with other childrein the home

    People disgust me bold and italic by me - so he didnt have responsiblity for the childrens care WTF and her - she fed them only a bottle and ONLY occasionaly changed them

    I honestly feel sick when I read this stuff

    This is a case that I would like to follow, TIA for any that will post updates as they happen.

    Snipped from the article that bowler posted in post #1:

    "The child weighed 8 pounds and 14 ounces at the time of death, she noted, and his twin sister now in stable but serious condition weighs 9 pounds and was also severely malnourished."

    and:
    "“Both children were filthy and showed signs of skin breakdown in the diaper region,” Culick said, raising her voice as McCray continued to cry loudly. “As far as we can determine, the children have not been seen by a doctor since October of 2007.”
    (Baby boy had a twin sister~my comment)

    Charges are:

    Marketta Sharnise McCray and her husband, Kevin DeWayne Isaac, 25, both of 132 Carolina Ave., were charged with homicide by child abuse or neglect and unlawful conduct toward a child on Tuesday after autopsy results showed Sincere Isaac died of starvation, while his twin sister, Treasure, recovers in a Columbia hospital.

    I have a lot of questions about what happened to this child. Especially how two adults in the home could let not only let the home become so filthy (by descriptions) but to allow a set of twins to succumb to malnutrition. One is deceased and the other is in critical condition.

    Such a sad case. When we read stories like this, my first thought is substance abuse, mental illness, or a combination of both.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    How odd

    Long time lurker, 1st time poster so forgive any mistakes

    autopsy results showed Sincere Isaac died of starvation, while his twin sister, Treasure, recovers in a Columbia hospital.
    Their names, how ironic.

    Poor babies. What is wrong with parents anymore?

    Grandmother says infant ‘blessed’ to live 18 months

    An 18-month-old boy who died Monday was sickly from his premature birth, and his parents struggled to keep him alive even that long, said Marva McCray, who identified herself as the infant’s grandmother.

    She asserted that the baby did not die of starvation, despite statements to the contrary by Sumter Police Chief Patty Patterson and Sumter County Coroner Harvin Bullock.

    **amazingly sad** Grandma doesn't even get it? Coroner said bull dogs had it better than these babies.
