8yo boy charged with bashing murder of baby

An eight-year-old boy has been charged with the horrific bashing murder of a one-year-old girl in Alabama.

It’s alleged the young boy beat the baby to death because she “wouldnt stop crying”.

The baby’s mother Katerra Lewis, 26, has also been charged with manslaughter after she left the little girl in the care of five other children all under the age of nine, while she went to a nightclub with a friend.


A coroner declared the cause of death to be severe trauma to the head and organs.

The young boy will be tried in family court while Lewis has been released on a $15,000 bond.
