Toddler Killed by Mom’s Boyfriend with Video Game Controller

Last Sunday in York, Pennsylvania, 2-year-old Darisabel Baez was murdered by Harve L. Johnson, Darisabel’s mother’s boyfriend.  And how did he kill her?  He beat her with a video game controller.  Darisabel Baez’s mother, Neida E. Baez, said that she had overheard the beating but did not take any action until she realized that Darisabel was unconscious.  She called 911 on Sunday after Johnson brought Darisabel to her.  She said that she was not moving and was wet, because Johnson had tried to revive her in a bathtub.  Darisabel was pronounced dead on Monday night, after she was taken to the Hershey Medical Center.

Johnson has been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and homicide (I haven’t seen what degree, but unspecified homicide is automatically third degree, or manslaughter – I’d charge him with second degree, but again, I’m not sure what he’s been charged with).  This was not the first time he had beaten the little girl, according to Dauphin County coroner Graham Hetrick, who said that this was one of the worst child abuse cases that he has ever seen.  Police also said that Johnson did not reveal his motive for viciously beating the toddler.  He deserves the death penalty.  The mother was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, because she did not try to stop the beating, Detective Dana Ward reported.

This is just awful – how could anybody beat this sweet little girl?

I mean – how heartless do you have to be?  I hope this guy gets the death penalty, and honestly, the mother deserves more than just a felony of the third degree.  Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes: Title 18 (Crimes and Offences): Part II: Chapter 43, Subchapter A:

§ 4304. Endangering welfare of children.

(a) Offense defined.–A parent, guardian, or other person supervising the welfare of a child under 18 years of age commits an offense if he knowingly endangers the welfare of the child by violating a duty of care, protection or support.

(b) Grading.–An offense under this section constitutes a misdemeanor of the first degree. However, where there is a course of conduct of endangering the welfare of a child, the offense constitutes a felony of the third degree.

If the coroner is right, and the daughter HAD in fact been abused before, then the mother did engage in a course of conduct of endangering the child.  In Pennsylvania, a felony of the third degree is punishable up to 7 years, but a misdemeanor of the first degree can only get her 5 years in prison.

I think she deserves more – her negligence cost her daughter’s life – I’d have charged her as an accessory to the crime.  She is a disgusting mother.

    While I still don’t see what this had to do with my latest post – came up as related – this pretty much made me lose my lunch.

    I can’t agree with you more, kill the fucker. However, never underestimate how blind one can be to the truth. Have you ever been in an abusive relationship? Have you ever known someone whose child was being abused? Its so easy to just overlook the bad things because you dont want to see….But that a$$hole? Burn him alive. Children should be treasured.

  6. Kc Says:

    I agree with Meg. I mean, really. How could you even hurt that cute little girl?? You’d realy have to be pretty heartless to do such a thing.

    This is one of the saddest things i have ever heard. This mother is disgusting. I have a 3 month old and if any one was to ever lay a finger on my child they would be running for their life..because it would take all my will power not to kill them myself. And how sick are people that they can beat a child. It makes me sick what this world is coming to. Anyone who hurts a child should get life in prison or the death penalty. I don’t care what it is, whether its beating, negligence, assaults…there is no excuse for any of it and its not acceptable. Children are innocent and prefect…i don’t know how anyone could be so hateful.

    You know something I went to school with that little girls mother 7 years ago.. I lost contact with her for about three and a half years now but when she had that little girl she called me and sounded so proud. Plain and simple she loved that girl and I couldnt imagine her letting anybody hurt her baby girl unless she feared for her own safty.

    I couldn’t imagine hurting a child just because of a video game. The person who did it just became so addicted with the game that he even can’t control himself. It’s not right even if you try to look it at other point of views.

    If you look at a traditional MMO economy like World of
    Warcraft, some pieces of armor and weapons are only usable by a small percentage of
    the players. “The Elder Scrolls Online” beta consists of weekend tests.
    Players just want to play the game, they don’t care about all those other things unless they aren’t working.
