    TX - Jeremiah Campos, 4, beaten to death, San Antonio, 19 Jan 2007

    SAN ANTONIO A San Antonio woman has been charged with capital murder after she confessed to beating her 4-year-old grandson to death, authorities said.

    Santa Magdalena Campos had been caring for her grandson, Jeremiah Campos, and five other siblings since March because their mother was incarcerated, said Mary Walker, a spokeswoman for Child Protective Services.

    Yet another story about someone doing something so cruel and senseless, for NO REASON at all, to a poor little baby. I just don't understand how people have it in them to do this to a little child...
    From the same article http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/4486528.html

    Doctors said the boy had suffered cardiac arrest and had bruises on his feet, legs, knees, arms, head and back, as well as a cut on his neck and many of the injuries appeared old and consistent with severe child abuse.
    Santa Magdalena Campos, 44, later confessed to police that she became upset when the boy soiled his underwear.

    She said she took him to a bathroom and started punching him in the back and the buttocks. She also pushed him, causing his head to strike the edge of a door, police said.

    The children are living with this "Grandma" because their mother is in prision. If their mother is her daughter, is it a surprise that she ended up there?

    I hope the others find better relatives to live with. That poor baby!
