Teenage boy suffocates his baby siblings; what the mother says in court is even more shocking
Mothers have a special bond with their children, and they have a strong desire to protect them even when they know they are wrong. But in this case, the mother of a teenager is doing the unthinkable by trying to protect her son, although he is responsible for the deaths of her other two children. A 14-year-old boy is responsible for the deaths of his young brother and sister. He killed them both when he was 13 years old, and according to him, he did this in order to prevent them from going to hell.
He was charged with murder for this tragic situation. In order to follow through on this horrible act, he grabbed a towel to suffocate his sister and then used a blanket to suffocate his brother. These murders date back to 2017, but it took the cops more than a year to place the teen under arrest and remove him from the streets. The teen believed that if he carried out the killing, it would help save his family members from going to hell, so he murdered his 23-month-old sister, Desiree, and his 11-month-old brother, Nathaniel. This unfortunate and tragic situation happened at their home. Although the boy killed his siblings, his mother, Christina, still defends him. “He’s not the monster that people are trying to portray him as,” Christina said.
“It’s a mother’s worst nightmare to have such a precious family and then to wake up to the worst possible outcomes.” The teen was happy to end the lives of the little ones because, as he told investigators, he didn’t want them to “have to live in the hell that he did.” Although they were tiny children, he figured their lives would be better if they were over. So the teenager played God and made that choice for them. He was “talking about saving Desiree and Nathaniel from hell and the chains of fire,” and “he didn’t want them to have to live in the hell that he did,” before he told the details about how he suffocated his siblings, the court affidavit states. When the investigators asked the boy to describe what “hell” meant, he looked them in the eyes and told them with all sincerity that hell was “chores.” He then offered the homicide detectives a list of the chores he had to do.
Although the boy’s mother still defends him, his grandmother was not so quick to be on his side. She asked him why he killed his baby siblings, and the teen replied: “He didn’t want them to be treated the way he had been.” The boy was happy to describe how he murdered the babies. He told investigators about how he chose to use a blanket for his baby brother and a towel for his half-sister. Prosecutor Richard is still trying to figure the confused teen out. He wants doctors to examine the boy to rule out any mental disorders. But there is a possibility the teen is playing the “crazy” card so he can get away with it. “In my time here, which has been 19 years, I’m not sure that I’ve seen anything quite as disturbing and as final as something like this,” Prosecutor Hertel said during a news conference. A judge will rule whether the teen is competent to stand trial. If he is deemed competent, then he will consider the prosecution’s request to try the murdering teen as an adult.
