Ohio woman and boyfriend indicted in daughter’s death

Mother, boyfriend indicted in Fairborn toddler’s death:

Malak Deek and her boyfriend/penis Brian H. LaPrairie, both of Fairborn, Ohio, have been indicted in the December 29th death of Deek’s daughter, 2-year-old Juliana Berry.

Emergency crews were called to the home shortly after Christmas for a child who was non-responsive.

LaPrairie is panicked on the call telling a dispatcher he was “slapping the (expletive)” out of the toddler trying to wake her up.

Yeah, ‘waking her up’. I’m so sure.

Anyway Juliana died from her injuries which an autopsy revealed to be blunt force trauma and battered baby syndrome. That means the abuse allegedly at the hands of LaPrairie for weeks or possibly even months. Which also means that Deek had to have had knowledge of the abuse and did nothing about it.

The couple are both charged with involuntary manslaughter and endangering children. LaPrairie also faces murder, felonious assault, having weapons under disability and trafficking marijuana charges.

Nice choice in boyfriends. I still don’t see why some women find it so important to have a man when it means putting their kid’s life in jeopardy.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.
