8-year-old child accused of murder in Alabama child’s death

cribBIRMINGHAM, Ala.– Police state an 8-year-old child beat a 1-year-old lady to death after the woman’s mom left the kids without guidance, reports CBS affiliate WIAT.
Birmingham cops have actually charged the 8-year-old with murder and the mom, 26-year-old Katerra Lewis, with murder in the Oct. 11 death of child Kelcia Lewis.
Cops stated the infant’s mom went to a bar with her good friend on Oct. 11, and left the infant at the pal’s home, where there were a number of other kids in between the ages of 2 and 8, however no grownups.
While the 2 ladies were gone, the 8-year-old kid presumably assaulted the one years of age since the child would not stop crying. The infant suffered head injury and internal organ damage, which resulted in her death, authorities stated.
Her mom discovered her unresponsive in a baby crib, cops stated.

Katerra Lewis was required to the Jefferson County Jail, and was launched after publishing $15,000 bond.
