Mother Charged After 10-Year-Old Son Fatally Stabs Himself Due to Abuse

Mother Charged After 10-Year-Old Son Fatally Stabs Himself Due to Abuse
(FreshAsFrankie) A Tennessee mother has been charged with aggravated child abuse after her 10-year-old son allegedly stabbed himself to death following a beating with an extension cord.

According to police reports, Robin McKinzie admitted to authorities she whipped her son with an extension cord and choked him as a form of punishment when the child became angry. Mckinzie told police the boy ran into the kitchen and stabbed himself.

According to Fox13, Memphis police say first responders found the boy bleeding from his chest at the family’s apartment on Saturday, October 28. Police said the boy was unresponsive when emergency crews arrived. He was rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced dead an hour later.

McKinzie’s family said the child suffered from mental health issues and the stress of raising him weighed heavily on the mother. ““She ain’t that type of person. She loves her son, and she’ll do anything for him–and he loves her,” McKinzie’s sister Tonya Bailey told WMC. “She let stuff just pile up and pile up, and as we know you should not whoop your child when you’re upset,”

McKinzie is charged with aggravated child abuse and remains in jail on $100,000 bond. However, more charges could be added pending the results of the investigation.

Tyrese Investigated For Child Abuse

Tyrese Investigated For Child Abuse
(FreshAsFrankie) Due to an accusation laid on him by ex-wife Norma Gibson, Tyrese is being investigated for child abuse.

It is reported that Norma has stepped up their contentious custody battle by filing for a permanent restraining order with the court on Tuesday, October 3. According to her complaint, Tyrese once beat their daughter so hard that she could not sit down. It was one of between 12 and 16 beatings that Norma claims to recall the actor giving their 10-year-old girl. The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services has delved into the matter.

The restraining order would prevent Tyrese from administering physical discipline to their daughter from here on out. Norma has also requested that Tyrese enroll in domestic violence courses, and she’s expressed her fears to the court that he may be a flight risk liable to abduct the child and take her to Dubai, where he has established himself over the years.

Tyrese is denying the allegations and countering that Norma, to whom he was wed between the years 207 and 2009, is simply angry that he has moved on without her. His attorney Terry Levich Ross reportedly had some choice words for his client’s ex-wife, telling TMZ: “She’s a lying piece of s***. Tyrese is devastated. He’s a good guy and I will prove that.”
