Kim Crawford, a 21-year-old Bronx mom killed her 5-year-old son (by beating him to death), because he broke the television while playing Wii.
Crawford revealed to police that she smacked her son Jamar Johnson in his back and stomach on June 12 “harder than I’ve ever hit him,” then watched him vomit and faint for six days as his internal injuries got worse while she never took him to the hospital.
Crawford said, She never took her son Jamar to the hospital because she feared getting arrested, so the dumb bitch instead watched her own son die.
“I was worried they’d see the bruises and I’d get in trouble,” she told cops.
The child suffered a ruptured pancreas and intestinal injuries, prosecutors said. He died at Montefiore Hospital late Friday. Prosecutors charged Crawford with murder and manslaughter. She was ordered her held without bond.
The petite single mom told cops several different stories about how Jamar was injured before finally admitting the truth, prosecutors said. First, she claimed he simply got sick, went to sleep and never woke up, prosecutors said. She then claimed he fell while playing in the park and injured himself.
After hours of questioning, she finally admitted becoming enraged at Jamar when he told her he broke the television.
