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.

Kai November 30, 2019 at 10:38 pm

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.

Shirley December 1, 2019 at 8:11 am

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!?!

Bree January 1, 2020 at 12:11 am

Just sickening !! They didn’t notice the other marks on her body until they took her to the hospital because she couldn’t walk or see and thats when they saw it. I don’t understand why it was important to say “ she was “visibly shaken” . She just put her head, didn’t look shaken to me at all. You are so right . Folk need to watch who they have around their children. The Dad could have been at work or whatever. Who knows but that demon should get the death penalty, I agree with you. How much time did she get? I didn’t hear them say. I just heard they found her guilty. Precious little angel is with JESUS now. She will need protection when she gets to prison because they are going to spank that rump like she’s never been spanked before.! They might do what she did to that beautiful little girl and the C.O’s will allow the inmates to get her evil rump. She is a straight demon. I will be lifting e family up in prayer. I noticed no family members of the child’s family was there .

A Lewis January 3, 2020 at 9:19 am

We are on the same page. You asked the same questions I asked. As far as I’m concerned the little girls daddy, mama and anyone else that should have known and probably did know and did nothing should get the same sentence.

J.P. January 3, 2020 at 9:42 am

That poor little girl……

From another news source…..

The state’s evidence presented during three days of testimony last week included disturbing video of Baker and her boyfriend Richard Rountree abusing the child. Normal Police collected the videos from Baker and Rountree’s cell phones after her arrest in April.

The frail girl is depicted in the family’s apartment in Bloomington where she was forced to hold cans in her outstretched arms for prolonged periods of time. Baker banged the girl’s head against the wall and slapped her naked body during a video recorded by Baker and shared with her boyfriend.

Richard Rountree condoned Baker’s abuse of the child, according to text messages shared with jurors. The couple exchanged complaints about Rica and their mutual desire that she live somewhere else.

The abuse was so commonplace, the couple’s other children walked past Rica without notice as she was being harshly disciplined, Assistant State’s Attorney Erika Reynolds said Monday in her closing remarks to the jury.

Rica “was battered and abused in front of every kid in this house,” said Reynolds.

Kim January 6, 2020 at 12:12 pm

White demon? How about just demon period. I’m white and I don’t claim this bitch as a part of my race

Gina January 6, 2020 at 9:44 pm

What does her being white have to do with anything? If it was a black person that did this, would you call it a black demon? Or an Asian demon? Racism at its best.

Sandy Miller January 6, 2020 at 9:57 pm

White Demon?? There are more blacks doing this crap to children including to white children than there are whites doing it to black children. Neither the victim nor the perpetraitors color matters. This is a charge of an adult hurting a child and in this case hurting a child to death. No life in prison. Give her the death penalty. These crimes against children have got to stop. This little girl had multiple injuries on her little body. And where was that precisous (black) daddy? There is no way on God’s green earth that his daughter could have all those bruises and abrasions and he not know. This wasn’t a one time incident of crime against this child. This has been going on for some time. Did the real mother ever see her child? If so, why didn’t she say something… do something? If the courts shove this under the rug then it won’t stop.

Staci January 8, 2020 at 5:58 pm

I don’t think caucus mountain natives are able
To truly love a black child- tbh just because you have a fetish for black D or black P doesn’t mean you love us either. Bottom line i would let one keep my child. 💯

BluGum85 January 10, 2020 at 10:49 pm

If the black so co
Called mother was avreal woman then her crusty black ass would have been raising her own kid.But most negroids dont raise tgeir children!!!!

Row January 3, 2020 at 10:32 am

From what I read….. the child for five days was having signs of something going on. The questions I pose is, why didn’t the father take the child to the doctor? How often does the actual mother see the child(if she is still around)? Whatever happened in 2018 with abuse with that same beast of a woman, why was the child near that woman? There should be no way that monster of a woman should be released back into society! Another beautiful black Princess gone because of someone’s hatred of themselves and lack of attention on the judicial system. If I had the capacity to be a judge or someone to make those kinds of decisions, no child would go back to a household that abuse was involved. My heart and prayers go out to this family and their loss of this beautiful baby girl😪🌹🙏

Neila ramoD January 5, 2020 at 9:10 am

I would be in jail right now , even those she is not my child, I would beat that lady and the father ass so bad it would be any thing to bury, to let that lady beat your child like that because u want a white women i’m sorry that the way I fell and don’t hate white people, kill them both.

Nooluv28 January 7, 2020 at 9:13 am

Fuck the Race Card in this situation! That’s the problem, people shy away from the IMPORTANCE of the article to bring something up as stupid as race! I don’t care if she did call her a White Demon, there is an Innocent Child dead because of negligence, let’s stick to that part!

Lauren Washington January 3, 2020 at 12:28 pm

give 5 mins with that bitch I swear I’ll make her feel what she put that poor baby threw.

Juanita Isles January 5, 2020 at 2:56 am

Lauren Washing Thank You I Will Help You.

Paula January 6, 2020 at 12:15 pm

I’m not understanding how people can be so low down to harm a child. Regardless if the child is theirs or not no child should have to go through that. And where was the dad in all of this? What’s so messed up is she got so comfortable with it that she video taped herself harming this child. And she has a nerve to cry once the verdict was read. That was fake she needs to have the same energy as she did while beating that child. She did not care while doing it so why should they care about her tears. Lord help these cold-hearted people

Jean Hess January 7, 2020 at 9:34 pm

She wasn’t crying for what she did, she was crying about herself. As a sociopath she can’t feel about anything but herself.

Irene Mills May 20, 2020 at 1:59 am

Sadly, we have devalued life and especially children’s lives through abortion. We are a nation that has convinced itself that killing your own child is okay. It started with “the first trimester”, but it was a slippery slope and almost fifty years later we are now accepting that even after the birth it’s okay. A group of intellectual’s were called to task when it was leaked that they were discussing why it should be okay to kill a child up to the age of two because the child can’t reason or appreciate life yet. What the hell? I know adults who can’t reason or appreciate life. We have to stop the slaughter of children at every age. Children are precious and innocent. Margaret Saenger, who started Planned Parenthood, started it to reduce the black population which she referred to as the “weeds” of society. We have to reclaim our families and reclaim our children. Stop letting them destroy the black family. The father is this situation participated in the abuse – he should have been his baby girl’s biggest protector. I want to see him prosecuted also. We must stop the devaluing of human life.

Pauline Foster January 7, 2020 at 1:29 am

As they say we are living the book of revelation which clearly states today’s situations.

Sharon Board January 7, 2020 at 9:53 pm

Put that monster in the hole never let her see the light of day never 😡 Heart breaking story 💔 Heartbroken reading this 💔

Sharon Turner January 10, 2020 at 3:48 am

That’s what i want to know!!! Where was he

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.

Bree January 1, 2020 at 12:14 am

We don’t have to wish anything on this demon. She will get her in prison. The C.O’s will make sure she gets what’s coming to her what a witch. EVIL EVIL WITCH

Linda Vallery January 4, 2020 at 8:38 am

I would kick her has and then kick her in the stomach until her ass Die if you didn’t want to accept the Child you should have Kicked Rocks and left the Man. Where is the Child Mother this couldn’t be my Child.

Milan January 4, 2020 at 1:39 pm

This angers me so much! I pray for this child’s peace in Heaven!
Not to worry though. This woman will get exactly what she deserves. When she is sentenced and arrives in prison. They don’t take to kindly to child murder, molesters and abuse! They’re gonna make her pay for killing that sweet, innocent child!

Debra Dargan January 5, 2020 at 12:13 am

She will not last very long in prison once they find out who she is and she better sleep with both eyes open and if not those ladies are going to have a field day kicking her ass

eleanor September 14, 2020 at 4:07 pm

I am an old lady, but if I got near her, I’d probably wind up in jail myself. The father isn’t worth the powder to blow him to hell, either. Death penalty merited for both. FIVE DAYS!! Five days they let the little girl suffer. God has her in His arms now. My 9 yr old grandson lives with his mother and stepfather. His stepfather adores him, and the boy loves him back. His stepfather is white!! Until my former daughter in law remarried, he’d scream to stay with his daddy, my son (videos to prove it) and yes, we know why. He looks just like his daddy, but is darker in color, and she’s not nice to him. His stepdad doesn’t put up with her hollering at the boy 24/7. I have him on my profile page on FB. How can anyone hurt a child, let alone another person? My venting is over.
Know what the Bible teaches about people who hurt children? The death penalty. You know why? Because that DNA needs to be removed from the population.
Matthew 18:6-7 6″If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

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

Yevette Allen January 4, 2020 at 5:40 pm

I don’t understand how a woman (and a mother) could do this to a child!!! And obviously raised her children to accept this type of behavior. May the baby R.I.P. and may the demon burn in hell!!! She is going to help with some gasoline drawers on!!! And a match in her hand!!!!!

Lashell Lewis December 30, 2019 at 10:58 pm


Diane January 1, 2020 at 3:13 pm

Not good enough. Kick her in the stomach until she dies.

Roy Manning January 3, 2020 at 8:50 pm

This low life bitch deserve death. I pray that she get whats coming to her

Dee January 3, 2020 at 10:12 pm

I want to know how her dad didn’t know the abuse was going on

Anne January 4, 2020 at 12:47 am

Child abusers and child sexual predators should be executed ~ as a survivor of abuse in many ways it’s like a living death because it changes the child forever. Some parents blame the child for the abuse, which is what my mother did and adds to the trauma. Victims of child abuse/sexual predation learn that no one can be trusted and that sets up a lifelong search for the “perfect” relationship. There’s no such thing. Often, the abuser is never caught or punished, especially if the abuser is a parent. The thinking that allows a person to abuse a child cannot be treated or cured; the only cure is execution.

Tamarah vasher January 5, 2020 at 9:48 pm

I believe that if you abuse. ANYONE. U should be. Locked up for life. In a faraway place. Where tgey have to work on a line. And pay there way but be out. Far away from people. On a lsland. Were you need boats or planes. No place to get away………. Then. Have to give money they have earned to victums. Or there kids or loved ones to pay for there therapy

Betty Moore January 7, 2020 at 3:07 pm

She needs to suffer the way that child suffer living is 😡 to good for her kill her now and save us taxes payer 💰

Carolyn January 7, 2020 at 9:37 pm

I totally agree. She should be put to death! A slow agonizing death just like what that child suffered . A quick painless death is too humane! Don’t think she’s psychotic ! She is just a mean evil troll! Where was her darn dad? If he witnessed this or the results and did nothing, sentenced him too!

David Fye II January 9, 2020 at 6:53 am

Jesus even says that those who harm His children, shall be put to death Himself, in Matthew 18:6 !

Angel January 9, 2020 at 8:40 am

Dear God! I can not read this Story it is 2 hard 2 Visualize such a Horrible Cruelty. But I can give thanks 2 KARMA because the Worst Criminals in Prison don’t like Child Abusers.

Patrick Jackson January 11, 2020 at 12:32 pm

Let me tell y’all something,these things about black men being spineless to be getting with white women is just simply BULLSHIT! because as a 54 year old black man to I’ve put up with a black step daddy who loved putting his hands on me and had a mother that I would tell her about what he did would be going unheard and sisters and a brother got a thrill out of it and he blackens my eye and sets right next to my mother and told me that he would hit my damn ass again sitting next to the her and dropped me off at home with him and went back to work and two weeks later not ten steps from where he told me he would hit me again sitting next to her he got into it with a grown man man was knocked unconscious and friends called and told us and my mom took me with her to help her get him into the car and watched her raise hell behind his damn ass risking her life and my life acting like she was ready to whip the world behind his damn ass so you can lay off black men with that bullshit because some black women allows their children to be around sex offenders and it wasn’t never ironic to her every time she leaves me and my other siblings around him we gets ignored and he gets empowered and the day I saw him knocked unconscious I then knew that there really was a such thing as God.😠😎

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

Vicky January 3, 2020 at 5:36 pm

The girls mother was in prison for DUI and Forgery. The father was also abusing the girl and was condoning the abuse by his girlfriend. This poor child was abused in every way possible. This is such a sad story!

Aurore Sombre January 4, 2020 at 2:32 am

It does not matter where her mother was. She was with her father, and he should have protected her. Stop blaming the mother, and blame the father who participated in the abuse of his daughter.

me December 31, 2019 at 5:39 pm

Please God give her life and a cell in a psychotic assed CO’s cellblock where he ass rapes her daily.

Linda Marangon January 2, 2020 at 10:55 am

This happened repeatedly over the course of day’s. Where was her father at while all this was going on ? That poor little girl didn’t deserve any of that. I’d like to put some boots on with attached spikes and continually kick and torture her for 5 day’s and let her suffer until she die’s. What a Miserable excuse for a human being 😠😠😠

Carolyn Brackett January 6, 2020 at 11:12 am

The father participated in the abuse, so did an older sister. They filmed the abuse and made multiples text about the abuse. Child’s mother in jail.

Karen January 2, 2020 at 12:40 pm

Where on earth were all the “black” relatives? Daddy, Moma, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie, Uncle, god-mom? How is it that no one thought enough of this child to ask questions when she was acting out or withdrawn (there’s no way this lil girl just took this in stride & not lash out in some way) this is why I want to be a foster-parent so bad!

Jacqueline January 2, 2020 at 3:19 pm

There is NO WAY in hell that father didn’t know what was going on. GET HIM TOO!!!!

Helen January 2, 2020 at 3:30 pm

I hope this witch’s punishment behind bars more than fits her punishment, degradation and horrific abuse of this poor child, (Inmates are you listening)? May this poor child rest in eternal peace. I always say – parents watch who you allow in your homes to ‘take care of’ your children. Where was her father? Why didn’t he know or see how this child looked? Poor child…she’s with God now and no one can hurt her ever again. Now it’s time for this witch to get her just desserts…can I help?

Amir Al Hassani January 3, 2020 at 6:32 am

I hope that the sistas at whichever slam they send her to, kicks her ass on a daily basis and then end it with a sharpened toothbrush to one of her kidneys

Vengeance January 3, 2020 at 6:37 am

I want to go on record as saying I am not suggesting anyone break any laws. I just want to say that in a just world someone would torture and kill that fucking bitch for what she did to that kid. The boyfriend too because you know he knew about it. She should die slowly, regretting every last second of her miserable existence.

Cherri January 4, 2020 at 5:41 am

The boyfriend was in on the abuse. They shared videos of the abuse. He should be facing life too because he did nothing to protect this baby

Ginger January 3, 2020 at 5:30 pm

Where the hell was her father ,it’s inexcusable what this woman did to this child but 5 fucking days where was her father for 5 days ?!? If your child is sick,injured suddenly blind you TAKE THEM TO THE GOD DAMN HOSPITAL no exceptions this is practically neglect on both their parts . This woman deserves the death penalty something up until now I haven’t believed in. Put her the fuck down .

JarMa13 January 3, 2020 at 9:06 pm

That is twisted sickness.
She was probably abused the same but instead of breaking the chain, she grew resentful, hateful, and killed this innocent child.
Still though, for murder 1 to stick means the jurors were motivated by hatred of her because there is no way you can call that premeditated.
She obviously kicked the child in anger.
You could try to argue that because the abuse was ongoing, that constitutes premeditation but she obviously wasn’t intending to kill the child.
She does deserve life in prison, perhaps even death. But it is disturbing to know that jurors were motivated by a bias.
They were so disgusted by her that they convicted her of a crime that she wasn’t guilty of. Murder 2, yes.
But an accidental death, no matter how malicious the intent simply isn’t premeditated.
There was no intent to kill.
Only mame.
Which is twisted and heinous and the lady is despicable, no doubt.
But circumventing the law because you’re disgusted by someone is a very slippery slope.
One should never be willing to bend the law.

Jocelyn January 6, 2020 at 5:18 pm

JarMa Delete your whole comment.

Betty Moore January 7, 2020 at 3:11 pm

No excuse about her being abused when she was a child I was abused but I’m not going to abuse my children or anybody else’s child that is no excuse and stop making excuses for people saying that they was abused as a child that should make you more sympathy towards people I get the hell out of Dodge with that she was abused that’s no excuse she should die now the same way that child died so I need to kick her in her gut

Mad as hell January 10, 2020 at 2:57 am

You’re just stupid. This low down dirty dog had time to get a video camera and tape it! It was premeditated!
Her ass deserves death. An eye for an eye in this case. Just a white trash piece of shit bully and her daddy needs a needle in his arm too for allowing this “PWT” to even think she could get away with even touching a
strand of hair on his child’s head let alone beat, kick, torture and then video tape it???
Naw dawg … you both gots to go and I hope it’s straight to hell

Jennifer Smith January 4, 2020 at 1:04 am

All I can say is, forget life in prison. This animal deserves the needle. Actually, I rephrase that because an animal is more caring. And another thing, where was the father while all of this was happening. Maybe she should be held accountable also

Henry January 4, 2020 at 8:36 am

I hope somebody kills this bitch when she gets to prison!

WILLIAM HILLIARD January 5, 2020 at 2:24 pm

There are black and white women in pen that love kids, she will get whats coming to her. Idoubt she will survive too many years if any. that is if she is in general population.

Kayla January 5, 2020 at 9:57 pm

I live in Bloomington Illinois, her mother miss Ann was in jail. And rica was was sent to her dads who KNEW EVERYTHING AND MULTIPLE DCFS CALLS WERE MAD AT THE SCHOOLS.


NeicyNun January 6, 2020 at 2:57 am

I’m so angry. Both of them should die for abusing that baby.

Lord Rizzal January 5, 2020 at 5:02 pm

Don’t send her to jail send her to Baltimore City.

Rosemary January 5, 2020 at 5:03 pm

Where was the father during all this?? He must know so why isn’t he facing charges?? They both should be put in jail for life!!!

NeicyNun January 6, 2020 at 2:59 am

This is awful. How could he allow this. How ?

Stacy January 6, 2020 at 6:56 pm

I hope she rots in prison.
How can you do this to an innocent child?
I hope someone does this to her in prison.
My heart breaks for that little girl and the pain she had to endure.
I have a ten year old and never have I left him with anyone besides his grandparents.
I don’t trust babysitters or daycare centers.
They show one face to you and then when you leave they treat the children differently.

Tanya January 8, 2020 at 12:39 pm

Oh my god, this hurts reading this . I can’t even sleep how could someone do bad things to kids.they can’t fight back. God gives you a blessing you take care of to the fullness, who can do things like this . I have a little girl and I love her sooooo much can’t live without her . I don’t leave her with no one at all only my son to watch her and we are loving family , there are so much love in in my home wish I could of taken her myself. Coward ass motherfuckers

Sandra January 7, 2020 at 10:04 am

I pray that soon as she walks through the prison doors the same punishment be inflicted on her…

Nicole January 7, 2020 at 10:50 am

Ok first off my prayers and condolences goes out to this sweet little angel’s family, now I wanna know where was the father when all this was going on, and next who the hell was recording all these incidents when she was doing this to this baby, I’m glad she was found guilty on everything and she neverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr gets out oh trust and believe she will get hers makes me sick to my stomach when I read this 😢

Freda January 9, 2020 at 4:11 pm

She should be given some of the same treatment to her that she gave and let her feel what that little
girl experienced. Where was the girl’s daddy and he didn’t protect her? Makes me sick. An innocent little
Life gone bc of a sicko adult. This is happening too too much in America. We need tighter punishments. Maybe it would stop!

Taurica January 10, 2020 at 4:18 pm

Rest in peace baby girl ..I DNT know you or your family but I wish I did and would have known she was hurting you I would have protected you like you were my own… Where was her father at on any of these occasions how he didn’t see the signs… Yeah I’ll talk to her with capital murder give her a day with me so she can feel everything that she gave to that little girl and then she could get what she took from her… That was a child I bet you she would have never put her hand on adult like that

Brian McKinnon February 4, 2020 at 4:10 pm

As a white man from Toronto, Canada, as a regular reader of Black Main Street, and as someone who recoils at the thought of anyone hurting, no, killing an 8 yr old, I can only say “fuckin’ white people are nuts!” Much Love!

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.

Dorthey January 1, 2020 at 11:16 pm

That’s what I want to know. Where was his sorry a–?And why would he leave her alone with trailer trash? Lock him up and throw away the key.She needs life in the worst prison population where they will deal with her. Do the same to her that she did to that poor, helpless little girl.

Pamela Schemke January 3, 2020 at 6:41 pm

Exactly. Where was her father? This is beyond sad. It is so heartbreaking. What a nightmare of a life. May her spirit is soaring with angels.

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.

Ernesteen Johnson December 17, 2019 at 7:54 am

This is so teerible the father maybe he didnt know all that was happening to her at the hands of that devil i hope they whip her ass everyday for killing that lil girl this is sooooo sad these blackmen get these white dogs an want to take their children around them kowing that white people hate us i hope she rots in jail an she feels the pain of what she did to that child

Debra Dargan January 5, 2020 at 12:33 am

She will not last very long in prison once they find out who she is and she better sleep with both eyes open and if not those ladies are going to have a field day kicking her ass and the father should be held just as responsible this is his very own flesh and blood and he allow this to happen to his very own child and the almighty Yahuah Hamashiach will not let him get off Scott free he will also get time in prison as well for his part in the murder of his own child and I pray that the mens in prison will kick his from now to dooms day

Gina Canty January 1, 2020 at 10:23 am

This piece of sh*t will not last long in prison. Someone will get her. She deserves beaten within an inch of her life, then allowed to heal, then repeated beatings EVERY single day for the rest of her miserable life. I cannot imagine hurting a precious, defenseless baby. Zero way the father didn’t know about the abuse either. I don’t understand how he allowed this monster near his beautiful baby. I pray this evil monster never knows a moment of peace for the remainder of her pathetic life. Rip beautiful little angel.

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!!!

Deloris Green November 22, 2019 at 8:47 pm

Were was her family. just dont understsnd it about the girls mother and father were the hell were they?

JP Maurice November 21, 2019 at 9:38 pm

This white racist neanderthal vermin swine bitch ugly whore , and the Uncle Tom, Coon ,(boyfriend) should be taken and summarily executed ! LYNCHED !! GOT DAM IT !!!
They not human ! They not human !

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..

Ben December 31, 2019 at 1:22 pm

Sounds like some people never change…. you still remain in the same tribal mindset that saw your ancestor’s own rulers enslave 180 million other Africans, kidnap them by military might and sell them to all and sundry all over the world. Yes that was YOUR ancestors who did that and even to this day slavery is not uncommon in Africa, lead by other blacks. Your ancestors also went with ships to Europe, raiding, pillaging, raping, murdering and enslaving millions of white Europeans before the Atlantic slave trade. Some regions of Europe still recall this barbarity but they could never justify to punish your current generation for it. So why pretend you have been the only victim in history? So, it’s YOU who are not human, and clearly by the sound of your mindset many continue to not be human to this day. Does that justify “lynching” you?

Renee Lindsey December 31, 2019 at 5:23 pm

Bitch! What history are you reading? Because its definitely not the history that’s factual. This bullshit you posted came from alternate racist history. So black people enslaved themselves? And when they were brought to America a land white people stole they enslaved themselves. Huh? Is that what you’re saying? Lol Hilarious bitch! I can’t stop laughing! Apparently you’re angry about the previous post, but you’re forgetting that it was a WHITE BITCH that killed a BLACK CHILD! You have no regard for the loss of life or the descendant of Lucifer who killed her you’re more angry about what someone said about you racist psychopathic narcissistic bastards. You said all of that FALSE ASS SHIT FOR WHAT? None of that stupid shit you posted made a bit of sense. But I gaurantee you this you wouldn’t dare say that shit in any of our faces. You all are some COWARDS! You’ll hide behind a keyboard in a minute!

Nunyo January 8, 2020 at 12:50 pm

Oh look, a racist black person who knows nothing about history. What a fucking surprise 🙄

Mj January 10, 2020 at 3:19 am

WTF are you talking about? Stick to the facts of THIS story

Your poor white trash piece of shit “wigger” sister who wants to be black and who
resented and hated her black boyfriends black child so much, that she methodically
broke this little 8 year old girls spirit and body and ultimately killed her and since you know
so much about slavery you must also know (you just forgot to mention it in your angry rant)
that this is the same thing that her white ancestors did to slaves

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

When will they arrest the “BOYFRIEND:

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

Sheeeyyiiit…. I cud a buss a nut in dat ho…

Sharon November 23, 2019 at 1:37 pm

Well the article did say she was also charged with”domestic abuse”, so that sounds like she was kickin his ass too! 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

Now it’s her turn to hold two cans with stretched out arms!

Arlene Speller November 24, 2019 at 4:42 pm

And u dont believe how demonized pink people are, but u had to go and put the dad in jail with her…..some sad shit

Ashley January 4, 2020 at 4:31 pm

As a “pink” person, I can assure you that a majority of us feel DEEPLY disturbed and angry and heartbroken for what this little angel had to suffer from the hands of very evil, despicable “people”. This girl was abused by the stepmother AND the father and his teenage daughter on video countless times and was something she endured regularly and they texted each other back and forth sharing what they did and saying they wished she lived somewhere else. If justice is not served in this lifetime then they will stand before God and answer then and spend eternity in hell! I believe 100% this little angel is now in heaven and forever she will be safe and filled with joy!

RIP Beautiful girl! 💔💔💔

I would say there are millions in every race and all over the world who commit the most horrific atrocities towards people. I understand though why there is anger from the black community towards us stemming from back in the days of slavery and continued acts of racism. Please know that most of us are not racist and absolutely are against it it’s just that the voices of those that are racist and hateful are louder than ours and to be honest that is a shame!! I’m sorry that our voices are not louder! I may not be able to “understand” fully what you guys have gone through but that doesnt mean my heart doesn’t break for anyone that has had to endure racism and hatred towards them. I use every chance I get to speak against racism or hate in any form but I’m only 1 person. Hopefully our voices can one day drown out the hateful ones. I hope that many people can find a way to lay down their arms and work together against all forms of hatred and make the future better for us and our children.


A white person that is tired of all the hate and division and loves PEOPLE no matter what color they are!

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.

Debra Dargan January 5, 2020 at 12:49 am

The father also took part in his own child abuse and that is a shame they have it on there phone that they shared videos of each of them abusing this child and also sharing compliments I pray that he will also be charged with his daughter death as well and that they will beat the living day lights out of him and they are going to set him up real good in prison and then pretend like they are his friend and big bubba is going to kick his ass

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

Ben December 31, 2019 at 1:16 pm

Children are often afraid of adults or afraid to rise up against adults. They don’t always feel safe and protected to tell someone. This is so tragic and horrendous.

Juli December 14, 2019 at 3:47 am

I really do hope she gets a good beat down In Prison everyday till she die horrible bitch and if her father new what was going on he needs to be punished as well poor little sweet girl lost her sweet life that’s not cool nor fair Rest In Peace u sweet angel at least u are free now and not scared or being hurt any more 😕💛

Laura December 31, 2019 at 7:40 am

It breaks my heart this poor baby had to know such suffering in her short life and now we have to pay for this she animal to be housed and fed . They say child abusers are the lowest in prison and they get theirs….

RIP little one.

AbiYah December 31, 2019 at 9:32 am

Savage instincts. She was doing what her ancestors have typically done to black children in their households, and the only crime is that it’s no longer legal to do it. She’ll likely join with the white supremacists while in prison for protection, and THEN she’ll be free to display her truest nature and identity. And though I’m not surprised by her behavior, I am heartbroken that this child was subjected to her and unprotected by her own family. We have got to do better by our children in this world. They are under constant attack by the enemy. We must never forget…the enemy’s savage instincts.

Ben December 31, 2019 at 1:14 pm

I abhore her actions against this small beautiful child, and she is a monster but your comment displays an even worse mindset and is grotesquely uneducated. Your own ancestors targeted Europeans in horrendous violence, slave raids, looting, rape and murder sprees for many centuries. Ships arrived from North Africa on the shores of England, France, Spain and all parts of Europe terrorizing the people for centuries. The Europeans had no engagement in the Atlantic slave trade at the time but its not difficult to see why they lost their sympathy considering your own ancestral savagery has remained unyielding for centuries and continue to this day, not only causing tremendous suffering across Europe but also caused 180 million enslaved in Africa by their own ruling Kings!

Lorayne January 4, 2020 at 10:54 pm

Those who abuse children often control their victims through fear. The fear can become paralyzing. Fear of what will happen if they tell keeps some victims from disclosing.

Also, in regularly occurring abuse, it becomes the norm. It doesn’t occur to a child to say anything. They also often believe they must have done something to deserve it or it’s somehow their own fault. It’s not uncommon for an abuser to put the blame on the child. That is how twisted their minds are!

Sandra Hudson December 31, 2019 at 2:45 pm

They’ll get her rotten evil ass in prison

Jean December 31, 2019 at 4:05 pm

I hope this f****** white devil rots in Hell! Rest in peace little baby girl everybody that lives in that house should be thrown in jail.f****** insane how people are abusing and killing their children and even their grown-ass children. I hope they get her rotten evil ass in prison and kick her in the f****** stomach until her intestines split open bitch!

TT January 1, 2020 at 5:20 pm

He probably needed a place to stay and thought that his daughter would be in good hands with this beast or better yet didn’t want her going to jail and tried covering it up.That’s a long time of abuse for him not to even be aware of it. This is very disturbing and sick.. She will get what’s coming to her and he also needs to be held accountable. His child was in the care of this woman as she committed these terrible acts.

Joyce January 3, 2020 at 8:43 pm

Read the story. The father received text videos of the abuse she was inflicting on this baby. Many conversations about them both wanting her to live elsewhere. Even other children walking around in the videos while the abuse was happening. I’m heartsick.

Larry A January 2, 2020 at 3:24 am

How would she like it if she was kicked hard 8 times on her stomach to death since she kicked an 8 year old kid to death

Sab ber January 2, 2020 at 6:45 am

Let me inform you I have been to prison before I had to be housed with lifers due to unlimited space at the time these mf walk around like they have regular charges meaning you would never guess their in ther for killing children, seniors etc.. nothing that treacherous, low, evil, demonic, or ruthless just heartless crimes when they arrive yeah they are automatically put on pc standard protocol they ho in front of a judge who releases them into population to do there time looking at them you would never know they go on like it’s a reg day I say execute them why let them breath when they had no remorse for helpless children life not saying ithers life dont matter but these children cant defend themselves

Sab January 2, 2020 at 6:47 am

So many typos but you get it

Sjandi January 2, 2020 at 11:25 am

This whole story is HELLISH. What kind of Human Being was this Father? For the abuse that went on you mean he didn’t do anything? Even give this beautiful child to a relative. To kick out this woman. To call the Cops to have her arrested for abusing his beautiful daughter. And WHO did the videoing of this abuse. That person was an assessory to the case. And the neighbors. Didn’t they hear or, see unusual things? Or, the school? They are supposed to notice things like this in children. I’d say the whole system failed her. To see and know something is wrong and not do something is as bad or, not worse than the Abuser. She had to be legally mentally ill. She’ll have her place in hell.

Richard Byer January 2, 2020 at 2:34 pm

This kinda crap makes me ashamed to be human. How does anyone ever get this sick and horrible. No child should ever have to suffer period. They are the one true pure thing that embodies all that is good about our race. This beautiful innocent child placed in the hands of this evil, heartless, sick abuser. Why didn’t the father protect his daughter from this psycho? There will never be justice for the child and no price is high enough that this woman can pay for her actions. The ultimate betrayal and now there are no words or acts that can bring her back. Some of you speak of hell in the after life? The fires in hell never burned as hot as the flames that we’re fanning here.

Anthony Kimball January 2, 2020 at 6:05 pm

I’m a white Male and survived sever abuse from my mother and her boyfriends. My heart is screaming for her to be put in gen pop! They didn’t deserve that baby!

Elaine January 3, 2020 at 12:54 pm

Where the hell was her father…

Carolyn Brackett January 6, 2020 at 11:09 am

Read the article. The father participated in the abuse, so did an older sister. They filmed the abuse and made multiples text about the abuse. Child’s mother in jail.

Gloria January 3, 2020 at 1:23 pm

I hope this bitch does get life in prison and put her in a cell with a woman who will treat her just like she did this poor little angel who didn’t deserve to be treated like that I only pray that she gets what she deserves

ABJ January 3, 2020 at 2:11 pm

Often we are told not to leave our children with “boyfriends” specifically girls but this just proves that children need to be protected against any gender!!!! This is disgusting!!!, Precious baby girl!!

Tee January 4, 2020 at 1:18 am

I can’t understand why people are not reading this whole story. The mother is incarcerated. The father knew what was going on. They both need to pay. God got that baby now. But I truly believe that those two are going to suffer horribly in ways that they or we could never imagine. Death might be too good for her right now.. She might need to suffer on earth first and then burn in hell! He should be equally charged too! Rest in peace baby girl.God got you now.🙏🙏

Perez January 4, 2020 at 8:30 am

After googling an article about her father, he should be in jail and a teenage daughter that took part in the abuse.

Tomya January 4, 2020 at 7:57 pm

No worries she will be punished for her actions one way or another! This is so sad!!! Makes me so sick to my stomach how can someone hurt a precious baby

Diane M Moore January 4, 2020 at 9:36 pm

See this is just why, innocent parents with clean records go to prison for murder and mayhem, for the first time in life. Most mother’s anyway would be my cell mate. Where was this child’s mother? What kind of low life man allows a witch to do this, to their baby. My God! I’m buying nails, reading this! Lord Jesus! This is just why, I don’t allow my babies to spread nights, it anyone to keep them. I don’t want to lose my freedom over chopping up a witch like this! Everything this demon, did to this child. Need to be done to her! #RIP LITTLE ANGEL

Carolyn Brackett January 6, 2020 at 11:11 am

Read the full article. The father participated in the abuse, so did an older sister. They filmed it and made multiples text about it. Mother is in jail

Tracy January 5, 2020 at 6:34 pm


Mary January 5, 2020 at 7:18 pm

I thought they said in someone’s comment that they would in other words,this demon and the daddy would talk to each other ab whatever the child did that made her mad @the child and he did nothing,yeah take his black ass to prisone not jail,jail don’t mean shit they both need prison,r the damned electric chair that man knew exactly what was happening,but as black people I feel sometimes they leave the black bastard alone 4amin, then comes exacution ,4whatever sick reason, take um both and let whale Dick,screw both of them until thatpart bust the top of their damned head into it’s a hollow hole,then do this every day until they give up the ghost, I mean everyday and night that what he allowed this demonic white woman do to his baby, I am so teared up and angry mad angry right now, please 4gibe me y’all and pray 4 me,bc I lost my daughter to a heart desiade , cardiomyopathy, I do have sons but she was my only daughter she got sick @10yrs old and went home to be with the Lord@ 13 , and I am so particular and feel some kind of way when it comes to little girls, her birthday was Dec.15th, so now ,I do love my sons unconditionally, but a little partial whMaryen it comes to girls,but God healed and kept my mind y’all and I love him 4that. But that demon needs to suffer more consequence,bc of this horrible act

Lamargo Petersen January 6, 2020 at 3:28 am

I saw that the other children walk right by without showing any notice as Rica stood naked holding two soup cans out at arms length. Obviously those kids lived in fear also as they never said anything to teachers or police. I agree the father and teen daughter should also be in prison

Stey January 6, 2020 at 9:58 am

what goes around comes around and you better believe everything she did to this baby it’s coming back on her she better be glad that this baby wasn’t a family member of mine because I would beat her the same way she beat this baby they going to get her those bar’s can’t save her ass

Lorenzo dudley January 6, 2020 at 7:55 pm

She need to be fried

Kill That Bitch January 8, 2020 at 4:59 am

That bitch need the electric chair!!

Sharon Allen January 8, 2020 at 2:29 pm

It’s praying time more than ever… It’s the 😈 using her at her own will… I don’t know if it was jealousy, bitterness, or just pure evil this precious little girl shouldn’t have to be tortured daily but GOD seen and HE said Vengeance is Mines I will Repay them to they Face… You Reap What You Sow. I pray she realize what she done and repent.. LORD Have Mercy.. I pray that the Dad didn’t know and turned a blind eye… Parents be more alert and watchful…

Roberta January 8, 2020 at 9:55 pm

Shut the fuck up

Lorraine J Fleming January 10, 2020 at 7:28 pm

Shocking that the school system did not pick up on the ongoing abuse. Very sad this beautiful child had to suffer at both the violence of this woman and the neglect of her own father. This is not a race issue, it is a domestic violence child abuse disaster.

Bland Z Talk July 18, 2020 at 1:01 pm

Notice, she’s not ‘cuffed! I’ll bet if the tribal colors were reversed, the Blackwoman would have been shackled from head to toe. She’d be looking like the Afrikan slaves were so chained their mouths were muzzled like animals. “Integration Kills!”
