A 3-year-old Charlotte boy was brutally beaten and sexually abused after months of complaints to the DSS in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, according to a report broadcast yesterday on WBTV . An investigation is underway as the child remains unstable in the hospital.
The mother, Shamika Reaves, and her boyfriend, Corey McCree, the male abuser are in jail. A police report was filed in March 2014, but the child remained unprotected.
The Godmother had been in contact with DSS. The boy was found unresponsive in a hotel room with a crushed skull and cigarette burns down his arms.
The couple may be prosecuted under the new Kilah’s Law, which enacts tougher penalties for child abusers. Kilah was a young girl from the Charlotte area, who sustained a traumatic brain injury from abuse and died from her injuries after her bill was signed into law.
