A Florida horror story to kick off your week. Late last week, a woman found herself charged in the death of a 3-year-old boy that she reportedly beat to death with a tire iron —- for having hopped on the bathroom counter to brush his teeth.
You’re reading that right.
Te’Lea Jefferson, 23, was arrested on 20 Oct after police were called to the home she shared with the toddler ‘s mother. According to police reports, the boy was found with severe injuries that required immediate transport to the emergency room.
This is in fact where it gets murky. Jefferson initially claimed that he had fallen off of the bathroom counter, however, ER staff told police that such wasn’t the case and his injuries were too severe for that.
As it turns out — Jefferson killed the boy the same night with the tire iron she retrieved from her home per police. The boy died instantly as she had waited a while before she had actually called paramedics.
She is being held without bond at Te’Lea Jefferson, 23,
