A New York City woman beat her 5 year old soon to death because he broke the television while playing a Nintendo Wii video game.
Kim Crawford was arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter in the Bronx Criminal Court on Tuesday. She was ordered held without bail. Prosecutors say she admitted hitting the boy hard, we’ll wondering how hard, in the back and stomach over the broken TV.
Police discovered her son, Jamar Johnson, unconscious and not breathing at their Bronx home on Friday. An autopsy later revealed the boy had suffered internal abdominal injuries. Defense attorney Camille Abate told the Daily News that Crawford shouldn’t have been charged with murder. She says that facts do not establish that Crawford tried to kill her child.
