    Woman Found Innocent In Beating Death Of Son
    by Lake County News-Sun Staff

    Sofia Nino, the Beach Park woman accused of beating her child to death, has been acquitted on all charges.

    Lake County jurors found the 25-year-old not guilty on multiple murder counts just before midnight Friday.

    Nino, of the 38500 block of Sheridan Road, was facing the possibility of life in prison if convicted. She’s been in the Lake County Jail since her late-May 2008 arrest, following the death of her 3-year-old son, Aziriah Nino.

    Sofia Nino had a habit of striking her three-year-old son, when the child wet himself, the Beach Park woman’s boyfriend testified Wednesday.

    Jason Taylor told jurors that he witnessed Nino hitting her son, Aziriah Nino, several times in the days leading up to the child’s Memorial Day 2008 death, including one instance when she broke a plastic hanger while spanking the boy.

    On the night of the alleged fatal beating, Nino was entertaining a handful of family members at her home, when the child wet himself again. That’s when Taylor and others told police that she took the three-year-old into the bathroom and they heard screams. Later Aziriah came out of the bathroom and took a nap, but never woke up.

    Taylor discussed in court how he discovered the body the following day and attempted to revive Aziriah by shaking him and rushing him to the shower to pour water on him. On the way to the shower Aziriah’s limp head struck the bathroom door and Taylor said he heard a loud thump. Taylor said he never told anyone about the child’s head hitting the door.

    After a few moments in the shower, Taylor called 9-1-1 and Aziriah was rushed to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan, before being transferred to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee, where he died the next day.

    I will never understand this. I shouldn't even open these threads. They are nauseating.

    Awful. And it seems to me the boyfriend's story at the end was a lie.

    So very very sad. Why do we all read these things if there is nothing we can do to prevent it all?

    Here is a comment made on this article. http://pysih.com/2009/06/23/update-sofia-nino-acquitted/

    Just sickening.

    "In Nino’s case, family later told police that they had witnessed her hitting her son on other occasions. Reporting that type of information earlier is paramount, but many are reluctant to get involved in other people’s business, Marlowe said."

    No wonder that poor baby wet his pants if his mother beat him with hangars. I can't even type what I hope happens to her even though she's been acquitted. She may not have caused his death but she most certainly didn't deserve him.
