(Mad World News) A Brooklyn thug is in serious hot water after the absolutely vicious beating he gave to his girlfriend’s young daughter caused her to die in the hospital shortly after.
20-year-old Kelsey Smith fled the scene on Saturday after he “punched and choked” 3-year-old Jeida Torres for merely soiling herself, leaving her mortally wounded, according to theNew York Daily News.
“She either pooped her pants or peed on herself, and he got agitated,” a source said.
Police found the dying girl and her battered older brother after neighbors dialed 911 to report blood curdling screams coming from the apartment in a city homeless shelter just after 4 p.m.
Smith, who has a long rap sheet with 14 prior arrests, had also beaten 5-year-old Andrew black and blue, but authorities believe some of his injuries may have happened before Saturday.
“He had bruises on his face and his arms,” Neighbor Keith Best said, according to the New York Post. “They were big, noticeable bruises.’’
Best said that the little girl was motionless as EMTs rushed in a desperate attempt to save her life.
“I saw the paramedics run out with a little girl wrapped in a blanket,” said Best. “Her hands were just hanging out … just limp.”
Jeida succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead on arrival at Wyckoff Hospital.
Smith, who had been arrested multiple times for robbery and grand larceny along with gang assault charges, was apprehended by police after the NYPD received a tip on his whereabouts. He had apparently tried to slash himself in a failed suicide attempt.
Jeida’s mother, Kimberly, was inconsolably crying outside of the apartment upon hearing what happened, accompanied by the children’s grandfather. She arrived at the scene 30 minutes after paramedics responded and told police that she had left Smith alone with the two children Saturday morning while she went to work.
The little girl’s grandfather completely lost it after hearing what happened, and the Daily News reports that his daughter couldn’t hold it together either before being brought to the hospital by police.
The incident remains under investigation by police, the Administration for Children’s Services and the Department of Homeless Services.
As of this writing, no charges had been filed against Smith, who remains in police custody.
If it were up to you, what punishment would you hand out to this merciless thug?
