An 8-year-old Alabama boy became fed up with a 1-year-old girl’s crying…so he beat her to death.

The boy, who hasn’t been identified, killed Kelci Devine Lewis after he and five other children were left alone at a Birmingham home where the tiny victim and her mother had been staying.

As for her mother, 26-year-old Katerra Lewis, she was charged with manslaughter for the incident, which occurred on October 11th, because she’d gone out to a night club, knowingly leaving her infant alone with the children, aged 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8.


Ms. Lewis didn’t even check on her only child until the next morning, finding her unresponsive.

Young Kelci died of blunt force trauma to the head and internal injuries.
