    "A Pennsylvania mother and her boyfriend laughed as they tortured her three-year-old son for weeks by hanging him upside down and hitting him with a frying pan until he died, prosecutors have claimed.

    Jillian Tait, 31, and Gary Lee Fellenbaum, 23, were charged Thursday with murdering Tait's son, Scott McMillan in what a district attorney has referred to as 'an American horror story'.

    The pair from Chesco, Pennsylvania, are said to have gone car shopping, bought pizza, had sex and took a nap as Tait's unresponsive three-year-old son lay dying after weeks of relentless torture.

    The torment included being beaten with blunt objects, tied to a chair with electrical tape and several punches to the face and stomach.

    When his body was taken to the emergency room, nurses are said to have wept at the sight of his injuries."

    I just read this article and I have been in tears. How could a mother or any human being do this to an innocent precious little boy? I don't understand it and never will. I hope these two get the death penalty as they truly deserve it. I truly hoped I would never see another case as horrific as Ethan Stacy's murder but very sadly another child has been brutally tortured.

    R.I.P Scott McMillan I am so sorry your time on earth was so horrendous and you never had the happy, safe life you deserved.

    This is such a horrific crime against this child, Scott McMillan, that the parents/guardians may be charged with most severe crime in PA. There are monsters among us and we as a society need to be more proactive in protecting children from monsters like these two people. I wonder if there were red flags at some point. Truly horrible and so sad. Rest in peace sweet Scott, may god comfort you now.

    I saw a picture of little Scott and my heart melted...before it broke. This went beyond abuse...this was torture. How...just how can this happen??
    Oh, precious child.

    This is one of those times I wish an "eye for an eye" punishment could be used. That poor little guy. I have a 3 year old granddaughter, and an almost 1 year old grandson (11/22). If anything like this happened to them, I would be in prison!

    I'm glad PA has the death penalty, and I hope they use it!

    I cried reading about that! I am furious! I have a 3 year old and I can't imagine anything like that ever happening to her and I'll just be honest here, if it ever were to happen there would be a thread here with my name on it stating that I murdered someone who tried to hurt my baby. What kind of woman was she? How could you see that and laugh?! How could you leave your baby lying there unresponsive? My heart is so broken right now thinking about the last hours of his sweet little short life. All alone, while his mother was out with his murderer. Oh how I just want to turn back time and take that poor baby and love him! AND what the hell is up with his wife living there? Did I read that right?

    Just sickening. The death penalty would be too humane for me for these 3 animals.

    I have nothing new to add, other than to echo the sentiments of all the above posters. I don't think I have ever been as haunted by a case before. The old Bobby Goldsboro song "Watching Scotty Grow" came to mind, how I wish he could have loved and cherished like the little boy in that song. RIP sweet angel.

    I'm sorry this baby passed, but so glad these monsters are behind bars. What a horrible life. I hope and pray they are never allowed outside prison walls. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if they received the same beating as Jeffrey D gotten.

    RIP sweet baby Scotty, you're in a much better place!

    There have been many cases here that have shocked me but this one, this one is horrific and beyond my comprehension. What sort of evil lurks in those 2 individuals that they enjoy hanging a small child by his feet and beating him with a pan. I agree with those who believe their punishment should be eye for an eye in nature. Whatever the eventual punishment is....those animals do not deserve to draw another breath near any living person ever again

    R.I.P little man, you are free from fear now.

    I hope the community and proper agencies can help Scott's older brother and the other children heal a bit. These children must have witnessed this torture or may have been victims of it themselves. It would be tragic if the remaining children are not given the utmost care and protection from both their extended family and the community. They deserve everyone's full support to recover and live safe and protected lives...I can't even imagine their confusion, fear and sadness. Do you know if there are any local vigil/services for little Scott?

    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/18d1...e/prosecutor-boys-beating-death-just-evilness

    ATGLEN, Pa. (AP) — The mother of a man accused of striking his girlfriend's 3-year-old with a frying pan, hanging him upside down and hitting him, and whipping him with a metal rod said Friday that her son is a good kid and she doesn't believe he beat the boy to death.

    Here we go again with a mother speaking out saying her son was a "good" boy! She needs to wake up, he admitted to what he did.

    Yet authorities said her 23-year-old son, Gary Fellenbaum, and Jillian Tait both acknowledged repeatedly hitting Tait's young child in a mobile home outside Coatesville, about 35 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Both face murder charges.
