Woman Who Kicked 8-Yr-Old So Hard In The Stomach It Killed Her Found Guilty Of First Degree Murder

Cynthia Baker has been found guilty of first-degree murder and other child abuse charges for the death of 8-year-old Rica Roundtree.

The child, who was Baker’s boyfriend’s daughter, suffered intestinal perforation after Baker kicked her in the stomach. Rica suffered for up to five days before she was finally taken to the hospital where she died on January 26.

Due to her wounds, Rica had been vomiting, fell down and said she could no longer see before she was finally rushed to the hospital, the Pantagraph reported.

Forensic pathologist Dr. John Denton later discovered that she had more than 50 marks on her body caused by child abuse.

After Baker was arrested, detectives found video footage of three other acts of abuse she had inflicted on Rica in 2018.

The abuse included striking different parts of the girl’s body, hitting her head against walls, kneeing her in the back and more.

One heart-wrenching video showed Rica naked and struggling to hold cans in her hands, while her arms were wide apart in a painful stretching position.

During the “discipline” method Baker could be heard mocking the girl and telling her to keep her arms straight.

Baker can be heard saying, “Cold, aren’t you? Good.” She later asked Rica if she should put a collar on her.

Baker was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury and could now face life in prison at her sentencing hearing on February 3.

She was also convicted of aggravated battery, three counts of domestic battery and endangering the life of a child.

Another psychotic adult, traumatizing a child because of their inability (or refusal) to deal with their own problems. She should never again be free to hurt another child. In my world, all child abusers would be sentenced to death or never paroled.

This world we live in is getting more and more crazy. Too many evil and wicked people in this world. How can you do sonething like this to an innocent poor child that cannot defend themself? I pray this poor baby gets Justice and the system doesn’t end up failing her. Y’all found her guilty on every count and she’s getting life in prison, please let it stay that way and don’t take it easy on her. She deserves every inch of what’s going to happen to her. God doesn’t sleep, and he sees all and hears all. You will not be getting away with murdering this baby. The devil is truly busy, and he’s taking over too many people. Lord we need you more and more each and everyday. I really don’t know where the mother was when all this was happening, but I pray God gives her strength. The fact that she was the father’s girlfriend, why wasn’t he doing anything about what was going on? How could you allow this monster to do something like that to your child? I’m not his judge, only God. It’s just sad to see so many of this going on. Smh. May you Rest In Peace Beautiful Angel.

I’m do so damn angry after reading this story. I have so many questions. Where is the biogical mother? Where was the biological father while this white demon was abusing his child? How could he not know of this abuse inflicted by his girlfriend on his childand when there were obvious signs of abuse? If that werey child I’d probably go to jail for killing that bitch How dare she. She deserves the death penalty for what she did. People with kids have got to be more careful about who they allow around their children.. including men and women that they’re dating or in a relationship with. Sometimes that person resents the child because it’s not their child..or they have issues with the other biological parent..ex of their spouse.Imhopw they whip her ass brutally every day in jail.

Sometimes these men are so blinded by color and their self esteem are so low in the first place, that they take up these “trash” and forget their own seed ( wanting to be like the Jones)
I truly pity these men. I’m sure he knew. Unless he is blind. He should be charged as accessory. Someone would have taken that child, so you could have your fun, with that demon. If u want the cow, it comes with the calf.

Shirley December 2, 2019 at 3:41 pm

Where was the father he should be in jail to

rebornnc December 2, 2019 at 4:56 pm

What happened to Rica’s mother/father/the boyfriend!?!

Belinda November 22, 2019 at 6:35 pm

I hope they dog walk that bitch everyday in jail and kick her ass 24/7

JoAnna November 23, 2019 at 7:35 am

It should be a life for a life. This lady is still going to live a life for more years than she allowed this child to live. I feel she should be put to death i. The same manner she inflicted on this child. Tortured, traumatized and abused!

Gregory Davis November 25, 2019 at 8:32 pm

I agree.

Janet Broadnax November 30, 2019 at 6:48 pm

And THIS is exactly why she shouldn’t be put to death. That’s the easy route for a bitch such as this !!! She should be made to live in an UNLOCKED CELL with a GIANT picture of that baby on her wall for the duration of her sorry ass life !!! LET ALL THOSE incarcerated Mom’s that’s missing their babies daily have a run at her ads EVERYDAY. It’s been said that the little girls biological Mom is incarcerated and that’s why she was living with the Dad and that bitch in the 1st place. How sweet would that be for them to end up ad cellmates.

Gregory Davis November 25, 2019 at 8:31 pm

Yep….I feel that same way, that child killers should be put to death.

John Frazier November 27, 2019 at 12:20 pm

I am just so hurt by this. I think about Sandra Bland I think about this little girl okay but didn’t have any help nobody to help her okay I just think about that part and that’s what hurts my heart so bad right now I’m driving the truck right now and I’m just when I first read this story I was crying because it was just so sad just so hurt as a father as a dad to not be able to hurt you help this baby or Sandra Bland. . I want to say to this baby I’m sorry I couldn’t help you it’s a Sandra Bland tell her I’m sorry I couldn’t help her either

Brenda Iriah November 22, 2019 at 8:03 am

Where Was The Little Girls Mother When This Abuse Was Being Done To This Child Who In There right mind would leave their child like this any way. And with that being said this child’s life has been taken she would not be able to grow up and go to her prom and graduate and get married but the woman that took her life she might be going to do life but she still alive ok

Doris Berry November 21, 2019 at 6:23 pm

Where was this poor little girl father at while all this abuse was happening?

Lavonda November 21, 2019 at 6:49 pm

My thoughts exactly…and why isn’t he being charged as well.

Vikki November 22, 2019 at 7:48 am

There’s no way this precious baby suffered all of this abuse and the father didn’t know. I hope he’s being charged as well.

kitty finnigan November 30, 2019 at 10:51 am

it’s so wrong that the last face this little girl saw wss this horrible bitch. her parents failed her

Joy Lafurno November 21, 2019 at 8:23 pm

This is and animal and she should just be euthanized..that poor baby what she endured poor angel it breaks my heart and the father did nothing to protect her…people like that do not deserve to live….

Daryel November 24, 2019 at 3:17 pm

He probably abused her to – I just want to know where the mother was maybe the mother passed. She rot in jail. Maybe some of his relatives is in jail – people who hurt children – they will get her in jail. She should spend the rest of her life in jail, no parole.

J.R. November 21, 2019 at 7:08 pm

My question exactly! If all of this video footage was available how could her grandfather not have seen it? The only comforting thing about this story is this baby is no longer suffering!

Sufferahs November 21, 2019 at 7:26 pm

So what about the boyfriend isnt he going to prison as well

Asta Hill November 21, 2019 at 9:12 pm

Maybe Karma is real and somehow, these same things will happen to her, until she dies from her injuries.

Terrie McNeil November 22, 2019 at 5:38 pm

This is heart breaking I pray that everyone seen this crazy stuff that the poor babies today are going through. Back in my days we never hear of this madness. God we need you more today to take care of all the little angels. In Jesus name we pray 🙏

Shirl December 1, 2019 at 8:18 am

Time will take care of her

Sheryl November 22, 2019 at 12:23 am

Amen again where was the father and her mother she had lot’s of bruises on her come on now that dog 🐕 needed to be put to sleep but where is the father the mom come on now

Kc November 22, 2019 at 7:05 am

The parents should have seen marks, but unfortunately, many parents are too wrapped up in themselves – or who knows. Hopefully they weren’t abusing her too.
The child was most likely threatened and told not to say anything. The little girl was afraid for her life.

Deborah Alleyne November 21, 2019 at 7:57 pm

She does not need imprisonment she needs hanging until the life empties out of her. She is a cruel heartless devil . May that little Angel RIP ..💔💔😪😥

Mykeesha G. November 21, 2019 at 9:27 pm

Reading this article is beyond infuriating and where the hell was her father while all of this abuse was going on??? I can only imagine what else this little girl endured at the hands of this evil p.o s!!!

AJ November 26, 2019 at 8:17 am

JP Maurice I agree 💯 with u but on the names “Uncle Tom” was the black man that defended black people from the slave owners and the coons “Uncle Sambo” was the ass kisser who killed Uncle Tom for defending a black woman..

Micki November 21, 2019 at 10:02 pm

now if that was a a woman child that was abused by her boyfriend that woman would have hell to pay because they always blame the mother for everything. what is this father saying. nothing about him, did he love this woman that much that he didn’t pay attention to his own child

Toshiba November 21, 2019 at 11:30 pm

This is truly sad and heartbreaking. Where was her mother and father???? Why this lady abused this child this way? Did she hate her??? I hope that this woman reap everything she sowed. I pray that she spends the rest of her life locked up . She is so evil to abuse a child like this! Jesus take the wheel!

Roshawnda November 21, 2019 at 11:52 pm

How can they not charge the low life ass father too?!? You know how evil you have to be to hurt a child? Any race of a child?!! She’s a horrible and disgusting excuse for a human being! She’s an animal. I just Want 10 minutes alone with her…. this bitch would get the ass whooping of a life time… and I’d finish her with that same kick to her stomach!!!! Where is his sorry ass? Where is her mom? Wtf!!!!

Lisa November 22, 2019 at 3:27 am

No she dont need to die matter of fact that would be to easy for her. She needs to be punished in the same way she punished that poor child. No, death would be to good for her. Plus most people in prison hates child abusers and rapist so she will wish she was dead long before she actually dies. So with all that said I pray this child is finally at peace. And if the father knew this was going on then he deserves to be in prison as well. And you cant say he didnt have some kind of idea this was going on. Unless he didnr care enough for his child to even pay her any kind of attention. Cuz if he did he would have known something was going on.

Sheryl G. November 22, 2019 at 6:59 am

She Will reap what she sowed Then inmates Waiting for her lilly white ass Yes Lord!

Suninmybelly November 22, 2019 at 7:07 am

Patricia November 22, 2019 at 8:02 am

I hope that dog gets a big dose of Karma, when she goes to prison. I should’ not say dog that’s an the animal kingdom.Thry should arrest that sorry ass father too.

Tyrone November 22, 2019 at 10:23 pm

Sharon November 23, 2019 at 1:37 pm

I hope Big Mary, Nay Nay, & Little Peaches and ‘nem welcome her ass with a “blanket party”, and beat that ass from amazing grace, to a floatin opportunity, everyday her raggedy, racist, ratchet ass is locked up….jmo

P Plowden November 23, 2019 at 8:28 pm

Arlene Speller November 24, 2019 at 4:42 pm

Sharolyn November 29, 2019 at 10:59 am

I see the author has ground knowledge it the subject in addition to some practical experience.
Such type of info is always more beneficial than copypasted blog posts ideas.

Willie November 30, 2019 at 8:18 pm

Where was the little girls father? Is he legally blind? Those bruises should have been visible to him

Shirl December 1, 2019 at 8:30 am

He refused to see. Want to be like the Jonesses. I must have a white woman. Well, your seed comes first. If she truly loves your low self esteem ( self) she has to love your child, but, you are so dumb, you forget u have a child that most likely would have been there for you, when u are old , and you will get old. Who can guarantee if that thing, would have been there for u? That’s a baby, that needed your care and attention.

Me December 2, 2019 at 9:04 am

I just don’t know why the kids don’t say something, to their teachers to a policeman to the father to the next-door neighbor to the other little kids till all these children you can speak up?? Question
