3 Year Old Beaten by Mother’s Live-in Boyfriend Dies

A 3 year old Tennessee toddler was reportedly beaten to death by his mother’s live-in boyfriend, according to police.

Investigators say Tony McKinney brutally beat the girl while the child’s mother was at work. McKinney, 26, reportedly told tony mckinneyinvestigators he “spanked her good.”

After the beating, McKinney put the 3 year old’s unconscious body in the car and took her to her mother. From there, he dropped off the mother and daughter at Delta Medical Center.

At the hospital, doctors diagnosed the toddler with a lacerated kidney and liver, a ruptured bladder, and bleeding on her brain, which only worsened over time.

Police later arrested McKinney at an apartment complex.

“No child should ever experience what my baby experienced,” said Ciriyah’s mother, Cassie West, who lost her job because of time she’d taken from work to spend with her child at the hospital.

“I used to love to hear her say, my name is Ciriyah, nice to meet you,” said Bettie Woodall, the child’s grandmother.

For two weeks, the family stayed by the child’s bedside, hoping she’d make a full recovery.

“To watch your baby lay in the bed and gasp for her last breath until she couldn’t gasp anymore, that’s the most hurtful thing,” said Woodall.

West is expecting a baby by McKinney, Ciriyah’s k!ller, in January.

“I’m not going to take my feelings toward him out on this baby. I’m going to love this baby just the same as I loved Ciriyah. I’m going to teach this baby everything that I taught Ciriyah, ” West said.

The family met on Saturday to make funeral arrangements for the toddler.

AND STOP TRUSTING THESE MEN. WE HAVE TO PROTECT OUR CHILDERN. I AM SOOOOOOOO ANGRY

  4. First and foremost why would any woman just leave your child with a man other than their dad?! Really! He looks crazy and deranged! Secondly why are you with him he had to show warning signs of his behavior! Thirdly wtf would she not know something is wrong when he picked her up from work immediately! Too many innocent children are dying by the hands of a boyfriend of the mother! This is a wake up call! Watch who you have around your babies! I hope they make him a b***h in jail he deserves whatever they give him! Killing that innocent baby! The mother better learn from this! I hope she doesn’t repeat the cycle with her new baby on the way!

  7. This couldnt have been the first time he has hit her and the mother knows it.

  8. Why do these women keep leaving there kids with these men? specially when he’s not the father of that child. I don’t feel sorry for the mother cause 9 times out of 10 this man was abusive to the mother also. I may be wrong but he had alot of nerves to go and pick the mother up from work and take her and her daughter to the hospital knowing what he had done. that tells me right there he had been an abusive man to the mother and her child and she(the mother) still left her baby with this monster. she’s just as guilty as murder as he is.

  9. Wow!Is it me or doesn’t he look insane?And this is the type of person the mother left her kid around?I hope they beat him in jail over and over and over and over and over and over again.Just like he did that poor little kid.

  10. Just read and listen!

    Why? What a coward! A 3year old child is dead because of this coward. He should be found guilty and never walk the streets ever again. The mother should sit in jail too. Who was the winner in this? Two families will be effected by this forever. Lets stop the killing in our community, if we don’t who will?

  11. Now take a Good Look @ this Negro would you leave your Child with this Man h**l No I replied! This Man looks like He’s a few fries short of a Happy Meal! If your a Parent Follow your first Mind & use better Judgement if you want to still be Alive in America because Uncle Ruckus type Negroes will Kill you full of The SlaveMaster’s Mentality & full of Self Hate & Doubt So Sad We are! Get with Mr Muhammad with a Burning Desire We make it outta the crossfire!

  12. Just look at Dude? Like Keith Sweat said Something just Ain’t Right! It’s like asking a Fox to watch the Hen House? SMH

  13. This is a growing epidemic among females who fail to examine the man before she get to know him and expose him to her children. Ladies you must learn to become WHOLE and wait patiently on the TRUE REAL MAN God has for you. When you operate in SIN…you REAP the CONSEQUENCES. In numerous situations children are often the VICTIMS of so call grown people STUPID DECISIONS and CHOICES. To top it off, this mother is willing planning to give birth to this MONSTER’S child, where this child will not have a FATHER because he will be incarcerated for life. To make matters worse, this child will have to grow up knowing that his sister was brutally murdered by his dad. I truly fault the mother in this incident…This is a situation of STUPIDITY. Better yet, perhaps I should have empathy for the mother, because she must have experienced some form or rejection growing up herself in order to attract a guy like this. LADIES allow GOD to be your lover, father, provider and confidant. Stop settling and having s*x with any male just because you are h***y and lonely.

  14. Children suffering because the parents are idiots!! All I can do is pray for the black community! We are so lost! Do I need a man that bad that I choose one that is capable of killing my children? I have NEVER been ok with bringing men around my children since I divorced almost 8 years ago! I have forgone s*x and bullshit relationships because of my children. As old as they are now I still wouldn’t leave my baby girl (13) at home alone with a so called boyfriend!!! We have to stop pretending we love our kids and truly love them. There are too many cases nowadays involving some loser negro killing children! Sometimes their own mothers are right there when it happens!!! But the thing my mind is asking me is how many adults will change their lives and decisions because of this story! How many women will decide enough is enough and wait for a good man instead of settling for the first sad excuse for a man that shows interest in them? How many couples will get married and try to live as a family unit to avoid the boyfriend that may kill their babies? I’m not perfect but in glad I was raised by a good mother and father. A man will never take precedence over my children!!! EVER!!!

  15. Man this man done F-UP dam G I’m sorry but u know u done F-UP u know not to spank a baby like that and in anger what is yr malfunction, well rest this child soul into the hands of a Angel and send him to jail and let him think about what he has done cause he will get his.

  16. When will we learn that there is a difference between discipline and abuse. This was clearly a case of abuse. This man does not deserve my time as he is a sorry excuse for a human. I hope wherever he goes they “beat him good.” What is wron with our society!!!!!!

  17. Have you noticed that a lot of cases like this occur without an audience and as a total “surprise” to the partner? Men and women, if they have foul intentions, will not show their ugly side nor will they tell their partner they have a low tolerance for children. Especially for kids that aren’t their own. For all we know, that man beat and killed Ciriyah because she linked her mother to another man. Maybe Ciriyah said she wanted her Daddy and this joker took his insecurities out on her. We won’t know. I’ve never seen a single father “need” a mother in their child’s life. Nor have I read about a single fathers kids being abused or murdered by the girlfriend. Not saying it doesn’t exist but I’ve not seen it. That being said…. Some single mothers need to grow a back bone. Don’t let a man into your castle unless he is King material! You are the Queen and your children the princes and princesses. Treat them and yourself as such. A Queen doesn’t need a King. She can handle s**t on her own. She wants a King and the two can build one Kingdom together.

  18. MY ADVICE TO ALL MOTHERS…Never,,,,Never leave your child/children with boyfriend, etc. This man obviously did not accept/respect this child, or her mother. It is very sad that the mother didn’t see warning signs before this horrible thing happened. Now that she knows that he has deep-seeded issues, along with a violent temper, he should NEVER be permitted to watch the new baby, or ANY OTHER
    BABY FOR THAT MATTER!! Take your time, shop around for a good licensed nursery school. Also, ask friends what they like/dis-like about their nursery schools. If you do not get positive results the first time, continue to look. It is better to leave your child with a responsible relative, than to trust someone who is unstable.

  19. Lock them both up!!! This is sickening beyond words!!!

  20. He needs to be “spanked” until he is gasping for breath. I’m also sure “mom” knew about these encounters; this wasn’t his first time brutalizing this child. But like so many desperate women out there, she was so happy to have a “man” living with her. I see it too many times in the school system. Too many lonely women who feel they can’t do any better will sacrifice the safety of their children to have that “man.” You know I’m right. She probably supports his, too.

  21. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!! he will take this child and let her grow up in a safe environment!!! as for this idiot who killed her !! He will burn in h**l after his rear is torched in prison and he is somebodies b–tch!! he does not deserve a better fate, I am not a judge but how would you feel if your baby was beaten to death by some idiot. She(The mother) must take this lesson and be a full time mother to her coming child!!!
