    SC - Serenity Richardson, 3, beaten to death in Summerville, 3 Nov 2009

    this happened in the town I live in. I searched and didn't see a thread.

    According to court documents, Erica Butts told authorities she beat the child multiple times with a belt after the child urinated on the floor. Butts also said Serenity hit her head multiple times while falling in the bathroom and thirty minutes after the last fall, Butts said the child’s breathing became shallow.

    Rest in peace sweet baby girl. Stories like these make me so angry I can hardly stand it. People like her should not be allowed to have children! I hope she pays in this life and the next.
    Happy New Years

    Coincidentally, I was on a JonBenet Ramsey thread yesterday. This is one of the theories about what happened to her. That her mother lost it when JonBenet wet the bed again and hit her hard enough for her to fall and hit her head.

    Pair to go to prison in death of 3-year-old girl
    Friday, August 26, 2011

    Butts, the godmother, entered an Alford plea, meaning she maintains her innocence but acknowledges that taking her case to trial would likely result in a conviction. For practical purposes, she is considered guilty in the eyes of the law.

    Cunningham pleaded guilty.

    The court treats the two pleas the same, and each woman faces 20 years to life in prison on the charge.

    snip

    "The child had bruises, contusions, scrapes, swelling to her entire body," Gordon said. "The only parts of this child's body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits."

    Summerville women face 20 years to life in child’s beating death

    The 3-year-old girl, Serenity Richardson, died from blunt force trauma that investigators determined had taken place over a two-week visit with Butts, her godmother, according to assistant solicitor Elizabeth Gordon.

    “The only parts of this child’s body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits,” Gordon said.

    I was reading back over past articles on the net about this case. One said Serenity died from full-body blunt force trauma. I didn't even know there was such a thing.

    Rest in peace, Serenity Richardson.

    Oh BeanE, I love that picture! What a little princess she was. Thanks for posting this update. I was born in the old Summerville hospital and have lived here for 42 years.

    This statement hurts my heart so much: “The only parts of this child’s body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits,” Gordon said.

    Rest in peace Serenity.

    SC - Serenity Richardson - Justice served

    Rest in Peace sweet Serenity

    http://www.flutterbyewings.com/wp-co...richardson.jpg

    Two women collapsed in court Thursday morning after receiving life sentences for the death of a 3-year-old girl.

    Shanita Latrice Cunningham and Erica Mae Butts were sentenced Thursday morning for the death of Serenity Richardson.

    They beat the little girl for days until her fragile, bruised and swollen body finally gave up -- but the two women showed shock when a judge demanded the rest of their lives in return.

    This sentence is music to my ears. I remember the Serenity case well. That poor little girl. These women are simply evil.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!
