In a heartbreaking report, an 8-year-old boy from Alabama is being charged with murdering a 1-year-old infant. It’s been reported that 26-year-old mother, Katerra Lewis, left the house that evening with her room-mate around 11 p.m., Oct. 10, to go clubbing. She left her room-mate’s five children in charge, the oldest being 8-years-old.
Lewis arrived home around 2 a.m. that evening and went straight to bed. The next morning when she awoke and checked on 1-year-old Kelci Lewis, she was unresponsive. Police received a call from her at 10:30 a.m.
It is being reported that the 8-year-old child became annoyed with the 1-year-old crying, and became violent towards her, resulting in her death.
Lewis is being charged with manslaughter, and the 8-year-old boy is being charged with murder. The 8-year-old is the youngest person the Birmingham Police Department has charged with murder.
