A father in Milwaukee is accused of beating his 5-year-old son to death for eating a piece of his Father's Day cake. Travis Stackhouse told police that if Sir Stackhouse's son had accidentally fallen down the stairs, he was showing signs of physical damage such as bruised eyes, a cut to the lip, a laceration to the sternum and three cuts to the back, Fox 6 reported.
However, the police investigation found discrepancies in the father's story. After an autopsy was performed on the boy, the father allegedly admitted hitting him with a clenched fist in the face and stomach for eating a piece of his Father's Day cake.
The man faces murder charges for the fatal beating he allegedly gave his son. The minor's family still says they are very sorry for what happened. “This baby was small, tiny, weighed about 20 pounds, and do you do all that to him? It's ridiculous, "the boy's aunt, Macshaunya Wright, told WALB News 10." I can't imagine a child having to go through all of that."
The tragedy occurred on June 21, at the home Travis shares with his girlfriend and their other four children, according to the police report. When questioned by the police, Sir's older brother said that his father had hit his little brother in the back and in the stomach. The boy's autopsy revealed that he had suffered a severe blow to the abdomen.
To try to justify himself, the father said he had beaten the boy because he had just eaten a piece of his cake for Father's Day and was furious that "others were eating it," according to police documents that also They revealed that Travis reportedly had a history of hitting his children and that his girlfriend allegedly "warned him not to hit the children so hard."
The man is in jail on a $ 100,000 bond and will soon have to appear in court.
