5th Grader Dies After Brutal Beating, Mother and Boyfriend Under Arrest:
The other day I posted about 10-year-old Seth Ireland of Fresno, California who was beaten so badly by his mother’s boyfriend that he was put into critical condition. It’s with great sadness that I tell you that Seth Ireland has since died from his injuries.
The boyfriend, LeBaron Vaughn, has been charged with his murder. The birth organism, Rena Ireland, only faces child abuse charges for standing by and watching her child get beat.
The other three children have been removed from the home.
If you ask me, and I know nobody did, she’s just as complicit as the boyfriend and should also be charged with murder even though I know that’s not how it always works.
Thanks to SFDude and LadyJade for the tip.
Fresno boy, 10, critical after beating:
10-year-old Seth Ireland of Fresno, California is in critical condition after being beaten severely by his birth organism’s boyfriend.
32-year-old LeBaron Vaughn allegedly got mad when Seth was picking on one of his younger brothers. Police say Vaughn then elbowed Seth in the face, punched him repeatedly in the face and chest and also kicked him while he was down.
Seth’s mother, 40-year-old Rena Ireland, did nothing to stop it.
Three month’s prior to the beating Child Protective Services were notified that Seth was in danger of abuse.
Three children, ages 7, 5 and 1-month, have been removed from the home. Talk about closing the barn door after the horses are out. Maybe they should have taken the kids out of the home before Seth was put into critical condition.
To make matters worse Vaughn is also a sex offender who received three months probation for having sex with a minor in 1999.
You’d think that would be enough reason for CPS to be concerned.
Rena Ireland has also been charged and both have pleaded not guilty to child abuse charges. God forbid they should actually take responsibility for their actions.
I still can’t fathom why some women think abusive scumbags like this are more important than their own children.
