December 2, 2011


— A south-central Kansas toddler has died, and her mother's boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse.

Wellington police chief Tracy Heath says the 2-year-old girl died shortly after noon Thursday in a Wichita hospital. The child was taken to Sumner Regional Medical Center Tuesday night and then transported to Wichita in critical condition.

KAKE-TV reported that she was suffering from severe head trauma.

The boyfriend of the child's mother was arrested Wednesday. His name isn't being released pending formal charges.

I normally don't believe in Hell, but in this case I possibly might make an exception.

But, it could have been an accident, no one should ever forget that.

Boyfriends need to keep their hands to themselves. Instead they are having free reign over these children, while mommy is at work or wherever. Isn't that how it usually goes? Mom comes home and finds the child unresponsive, or grandma reports the abuse because mom won't.

How sad is this. There are just no words to express all the emotions.
