    Since March, the mother, Rhoda Lewis, has been visiting her children two hours twice a week.

    Lewis says she has been taking pictures of her children's bruises ever since.

    "I begged and pleaded and cried. I said, 'Please don't send my babies back there.' And they would have to tear my children off me screaming, 'Mommy, please no no, mommy.' And there's nothing mommy could have done," said Rhoda Lewis, the mother.

    Lewis blames her sister and brother-in-law for the death of her son.

    These poor babies get caught in the middle of drugs and abuse. Will it ever end? They are taken from a parent(s) and given to a relative and still this happens.

    Why take a child into your home to abuse him/her? Why not just say no!

    It is a tragedy and it breaks my heart. What is the answer? How can we protect these children? Its everyday not occasional abuse or death but everyday!

    Rest In Peace little Watson. No more abuse, no more pain. I am praying for your brothers and sisters.

    He did get the life sentence and 10 years for each child abuse charge, according to Kentucky DOC records, but I couldn't find anything on Gladys. Still pending, apparently.
