Cops: Toddler’s Killing Born of Mom’s ‘Moment of Frustration’

Cops: Toddler's Killing Born of Mom's 'Moment of Frustration'

(Newser) – Police searched woods, divers searched ponds, and a sketch of an apparent suspect spread across social media. All this in the 60 hours after Charisse Stinson reported her 2-year-old son missing early Sunday, claiming he’d been taken by a man who offered her a ride before knocking her unconscious. But there was no “Antwan” in a white Toyota Camry with dreadlocks and gold teeth, according to police, who arrested 21-year-old Stinson on first-degree murder charges Tuesday, reports the New York Times. Hours after Stinson told Spectrum News she was “a damn good mom,” the body of Jordan Belliveau was discovered in a wooded area behind a baseball field in Largo, Fla., and police say his pregnant mother admitted to putting him there, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Stinson said she struck the boy in the face, causing his head to hit a wall, “during a moment of frustration” after an “unexplained, serious injury” to his right leg, per an arrest affidavit. After the boy suffered repeated seizures, Stinson brought him to the wooded area Sunday and departed without him, police say. Describing Stinson as a “struggling single mother,” police on Monday had noted that bloody items in her apartment might’ve been from an accident that required Jordan to get stitches. Despite that, “we honestly knew it was her because of her past with us,” an uncle of the boy tells Fox 13. Per Spectrum News, Jordan was put in foster care at 3 months old but returned to Stinson in May. An autopsy of the boy is scheduled for Wednesday.
