    3 women( Theresa Hawkins-Stephens, who is the mom and her friends: Ramona Bastian and Rachel Bastian)were arrested after 2 boys(6 and 5 yrs) were found badly beaten in Parkway Motel in Middletown, OH.
    The 5 year old died in the hospital&#128546;

    The women used belts, sticks and belts to beat the boys for 20hours.

    RIP Alexander Stephens.

    How could 3 grown woman take part in this heinous act ? When one person is accused of abusing children.
    , I think " if only someone else were there to stop them". Why ???????

    I have no words and no hope for humanity when I read stories like this. Why do this? Let's just throw away the keys.

    Just when I think I have seen it all, read every horrible thing alleged humans can do to another

    I feel unwell. How those boys suffered.

    For over 24 hours according to this article? Non-stop? What? Did they do it in shifts? That sounds facetious but I can't imagine how you could do that for so long without being on some serious drugs. They lived in squalor. Not the sign of a healthy lifestyle.

    The boys are adorable. I hope these women never see the outside of a prison fence again.

    I am probably more shocked after reading this article that one of them survived at all.

    What is with these people that beat children to death because they 'took food' or 'peed themselves' or 'vomited' or whatever? You beat them to death because they're human doing human things? Ugh. Just ugh. :stormingmad:

    I agree drugs can be the only explanation for having the *whatever* it takes to bash a kid for 24 hours plus.

    Mental illness and being just plain bad/evil and everything else as well. I know this. But I don't understand it and I never will.

    I almost never read anything in "Spotlight on Children" because it makes me too sad but this one caught my eye because of the name "Alexander." What cuties. I'm so sorry they had to suffer so horribly. I hope Alexander is resting in peace and that his brother will be able to find a loving home and survive this trauma.

    HAMILTON, Ohio -- A mother accused of tying up her 5-year-old son and beating him for 22 hours because he "stole food" pleaded guilty Friday.

    http://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news...ads-guilty-in-beating-death-of-5-year-old-son

    Judge Greg Stephens on Monday handed down the maximum sentence of 18 years to life in prison for Theresa Hawkins-Stephens.

    [...]

    &#8220;You had two little boys, probably the only two human beings on the planet who loved you unconditionally. They trusted you to protect them, to look over them. You violated the greatest human trust that can be placed &#8212; the relationship between a young child and a parent,&#8221; Judge Stephens said.

    http://www.daytondailynews.com/news...n-fatal-child-beating/vkL4tdzUvIPVezlKgeyO8M/

    Police say Hawkins-Stephens and Rachel Bostian tied Alexander up for nearly a day and severely beat him. Bostian was sentenced earlier to 18 years to life after pleading guilty to murder and child endangering.


    Bostian&#8217;s mother was sentenced to three years for obstructing justice.
