A United States Army combat medic has been charged in the rape and strangling death of one of his 9-month-old twin daughters. 

Authorities were called to a home in Clarksville, Tennessee, early on Wednesday morning to assist a family that was administering CPR to an unresponsive baby girl.

Police spokesperson Jim Knoll said the infant was taken to Tennova Health Care where she was pronounced dead with injuries consistent with rape. 

Homicide detectives accused Christopher Conway, 22, of sexually assaulting the 9-month-old infant and wrapping a cord around her neck, causing her to die of strangulation.

Conway admitted to both raping and murdering the child during an interview with detectives.

He was booked into the Montgomery County jail on a $100,000 bond over the rape charge but denied bond on the homicide charge by Judge Ray Grimes, who stated that this could [???] be a death penalty case. 

His first court appearance is set to be on Nov. 21 at 1:30 pm.

Conway and his wife Emily, who have been married for three years, welcomed their twin daughters in February 2017. 

The surviving twin has been removed from the family's home and is currently in state custody.

Cultural decay and declining standards of behavior in the United States.

I don't go looking for such indescribably painful news, but how can you avoid these reports when they're happening every day all across America? This has become the new norm.

Obviously American society has very serious issues, and yet our government neither discusses nor addresses it. Go figure.

Fortnately the good people of Tennessee are willing to execute this kind of scum following a conviction.  I am amazed by the people who argue that a piece of human excrement like this can be rehabilitated. 

You would think the states that don't have the death penalty could find something better to do with the taxpayers money rather than feed, cloth, provide dental and medical for 30 or 40 years for homocide convicts.

CRESTVIEW, Fla. – A murder charge has been filed against the boyfriend of a Florida woman whose 3-year-old daughter died after he kicked her in the head because she got out of a car seat.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said the murder charge was filed Sunday against 29-year-old Cory M. Hagwell in the killing of 3-year-old Adelynn Merrell. He also faces child abuse charges.

The mother, 23-year-old Destinee J. Merrell, is charged with being an accessory after the fact, child neglect and child battery.

Both are jailed without bail.

Investigators say Hagwell kicked the 3-year-old girl in the head, locked her in a closet and took her body to nearby woods after finding her dead.

The couple initially reported the girl missing.

Update: An autopsy on Adelynn Merrell has revealed that the little girl died from a skull fracture to the back of the head caused by blunt force trauma.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has now added a charge of first-degree murder to prior charges involving 29-year-old Cory M. Hagwell and a charge of accessory after the fact to murder for Adelynn’s mother, 23-year old Destinee J. Merrell.

DEKALB, Ill. (WLS) -- DeKalb police said a woman has been charged with murder and child abuse in the death of her boyfriend's 2-year-old child.

Police said at about 7:20 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, they were notified by staff at KishwaukeeCommunityHospital that a 2-year-old had sustained a brain injury under suspicious circumstances. The toddler was taken to Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago for further treatment.

An investigation found Alexandra Hoyle, 21, of DeKalb, who was the girlfriend of the boy's father, had slammed the child's head onto the hardwood floor of their home in the 800 block of Ridge Drive in DeKalb.

Hoyle was arrested on Saturday, Nov. 11, and charged with aggravated battery to a child. Bond was set at $500,000 and subsequently lowered to $100,000. She was held at DeKalb County Jail until she posted bail [She was released ???].

Wednesday the 2-year-old succumbed to their injuries at Lurie Children's Hospital. An autopsy Thursday found he died of blunt force trauma to his head from child abuse and his death was ruled a homicide.

Hoyle was arrested again and charged with two counts of first degree murder. Her bond was set at $5 million.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Child and Family Services released a statement on Friday:

"DCFS is investigating the father's girlfriend, Alexandra Hoyle, for allegations of abuse and neglect resulting in the death of Khalil Body. Khalil's twin brother was in the home at the time of the incident and is now in the custody of his father."

DCFS said they have not had prior contact with Hoyle, but they have had prior contact with the child's biological mother and father for allegations of neglect in May 2016 and October 2017.

"In May 2016, the biological mother was indicated for neglect and allegations against the father were unfounded. In October 2017, allegations of neglect were unfounded for both parents," DCFS said.

Hoyle remains in custody at DeKalb County Jail.

LOS ANGELES -- A Palmdale man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend's 8-year-old son, Gabriel Fernandez.

Isauro Aguirre's fate was announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The jury found him guilty of first-degree murder and also guilty in the special circumstance allegation of murder involving the infliction of torture.

This count makes Aguirre eligible for the death penalty, though jurors were explicitly instructed not to consider potential penalties [why ???].

The penalty phase, during which jurors will be asked whether Aguirre should be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole, will begin Nov. 27.

The murdered boy was routinely beaten, shot with a BB gun, fed cat feces and forced to sleep while gagged and bound inside a small cabinet, witnesses and prosecutors said. He died in May 2013.

After the verdict was announced, Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Hatami was seen crying as he embraced Gabriel's biological father.

In the same way a CEO/president "sets the tone" (atmosphere) at his company, I believe it is the government's job to lead society in a proper direction.

We all know there's a massive behavior problem within US society, and yet our government never discusses it even though they are in the best position to address it.

Today's America is not the country we grew up in. It is not the "benchmark for the world" that we were once proud of, and globally admired for.

While two parents admitted they did physically abuse and neglect 3-year-old Jayden Jones, who was found dead in his Huntington home in July 2016, and failed to seek medical attention to save his life, a jury found Thursday their actions did not equate to first-degree murder [how ???].

However, the jury did not recommend mercy, meaning the pair will spend the rest of their life behind bars [senselessly at taxpayer expense].

Jayden's mother, Mariya Jones, 24, and step-father, Aaron Miles, 33, were found guilty of second-degree murder by a CabellCounty jury on Thursday.

They also were found guilty of murder of a child by a parent, which carries a life sentence. The jury will now be called upon to determine whether or not Jones and Miles will be given mercy.

"Jurors heard and saw evidence that was just brutal as to what these defendants did to this 3-year-old child," prosecutor Sean "Corky" Hammers said.

"It wasn't like it was a surprise," defense attorney Kerry Nessel said. "It was pretty bad. The pictures were dreadful. I believe my client. I still believe him. I really do. I think his soon to be ex-wife is the one who inflicted these injuries on Jayden. My client had some culpability. He sure did."

Attorneys on both sides said it was one of the most horrible cases they've seen.

"This was just an intentional killing, as the jury put it, of a 3-year-old by two parents," Hammers said.

"It's the worst I've seen," Nessel said. "Nothing is even close."

Miles and Jones were charged in a 16-count indictment with first-degree murder, murder of a child by a parent/guardian, death of a child by a parent/guardian, conspiracy to commit child abuse causing bodily injury and two counts of child neglect creating a substantial risk of injury.

The jury received the case Wednesday afternoon and elected to start deliberations Thursday after hearing there were 115 pieces of evidence for them to sort through.

The jury started deliberation at 9 a.m. Thursday. At the mid-morning break, some jurors exited the room with tears streaking down their face.

They came out at about 12:30 p.m. to ask the judge to define intent, which is needed for a first-degree murder conviction.

He could not and asked the jury to go return to deliberations.

Miles said he had not realized how bad Jayden’s injuries had been, but Brown pointed to times Miles said he had cleaned Jayden himself and asked how he had not seen the markings that covered the boy head to toe.

Miles and Jones left their home at about 9:30 a.m. the day Jayden died, July 12, 2016. She went to a DHHR appointment, while he ran his own errands. Jayden had been left in the bathroom because he urinated on the couch overnight.

He returned home at one point and testified Jayden was alive, but still wanted to sleep. He said he left him with a pillow, blanket, juice and water, even though first-responders said they did not see those items in the bathroom. Miles said he threw away the pillow because it was soaked in something when Jayden died and that he removed other items and placed them where they originally belonged before they arrived.

Stanley argued at the point Miles returned to the home for to check on their three children, Jayden was already dead because when first responders arrived Jayden was cold to the touch.

Miles picked Jones up from her appointment and the pair returned home. Between the time they left DHHR and called 911, it was about an hour, Stanley estimated.

When the couple returned home they first went to the bathroom. Jones used the bathroom while Miles attempted to wake Jayden up. He could not.

He said he leaned Jayden up and his head drooped. Miles said at that point he knew something was wrong. He said he started attempting to perform CPR on Jayden while calling a friend for help. The friend told him to call 911, but 20 minutes went by before the parents did.

Miles said he was trying to save Jayden. Stanley and Brown said the pair might have been trying to hide illegal drug items. Stanley’s client was too afraid of Miles, she said, because of domestic abuse and fear of landing on the streets if he was arrested, to report Miles’ illegal activities.

Brown said Miles was part of a large drug ring in Huntington, pointing to text messages and friendships with Mark Bush, who is currently serving 17 years in federal prison for drug crimes, and Tiquan Lang, who is serving probation time for the same.

While Miles performed CPR, Jones was erratic and had started putting makeup on Jayden so investigators would not see scarring.

Miles said he placed Jayden into the bathtub to wash off the makeup and excrement. But the bathtub, Brown said, was dusty when investigators photographed it.

First responders arrived in less than five minutes after being called and found Jayden in the hall of the home downstairs. Because of poor lighting, they moved him outside, where the afternoon sunlight shined on his battered body.

He had bruising, scratch marks, cuts, burns from the top of his head to the bottoms of his feet; a broken rib, internal bleeding; deep-tissue bruising and oral injuries.

An autopsy found internal hemorrhaging, especially around his temple, due to deep bruising. Whip lashes scarred his back.

It was determined he died of sepsis after holes in his intestines leaked feces into his abdominal cavity.

The state’s expert witness, Dr. Barbara Knox, testified Jayden had been tortured through a mixture of physical and mental abuse. Besides the severe beatings, he was isolated from his family for stealing food and fighting with his sister, she said, and a child stealing food from their own house was a sign food had been withheld from them.

Jayden was forced to do exercises. Miles admitted to forcing pushups and bear crawls as forms of corporal punishment. A video played in court showed Jayden being forced to hold a pumpkin over his head while his parents watched.

Tiquan Lang testified he had witnessed them both hitting the boy. When she felt like she was not able to do it hard enough, she told Miles to take care of it and he did, Lang testified.

Belts, cords and a child’s toy were all items taken into evidence by the Huntington Police Department as instruments that could have been used to leave circle and looping patterns found in bruising on Jayden.

Before the trial started Sept. 18, Miles had pleaded guilty to two charges of child neglect and Jones to three charges of child abuse for hitting and burning the child.

Prosecutors were unable to find any medical records for Jayden from his short lifetime. Miles said he had taken Jayden for a checkup in Charleston, but that hospital said they had no record of any visit.

A Child Protective Services case was opened against Jones after she went into DHHR drunk about a month prior to Jayden's death. While they were able to meet Jayden's siblings, Jones concealed Jayden from seeing case workers on more than half-dozen occasions.

Cover them in Molasses  & stake them out on top of a Big Ants nest, & let the Ants eat them Alive I say...

 I've said that before also.    But I added to it .  Take them to the river bottom  in the summer time , close to the woods but still out in the field. That way the Sun Bakes them, but the Mosquitoes eat them alive in the evening ,  Take a track hoe or back hoe dig a hole, bury them up to their head,   Pour their mouth full of Salt or Sand Preferably Salt , That way the mouth drys out , Gag the mouth , Pour Black Strap Molasses on top of their head ,  If the ants & fire ants eat em up , The rest of mother natures clean up crew will. I.E. the buzzards . & If The River Rises During a flash flood even better .
