    TX - Shaniya Crittle, 2, beaten to death, Austin, 13 Aug 2005

    Anyone who stood by as a 2-year-old North Austin girl was beaten, allegedly by her father as he baby-sat her, should be held accountable for her murder, the girl's aunt said Saturday.

    "They watched that baby suffer. It really makes me feel angry," Evalena Gaiter said following a 1-1/2-hour funeral service for Shaniya Crittle at Heritage International Christian Church, 5320 W. North Ave.

    Shaniya was beaten and punched so severely by Rayonous Burnett, 24, that her screams could be heard outside the apartment, in the 1200 block of North Lamon, prosecutors 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?

    Oh that poor little baby. I agree anyone who stood by and let this monster kill that child should be held accountable. Rest in peace little one. Run among all the other angels in Heaven.
