Police: He took a cupcake. They beat him to death with a baseball bat.

Authorities were originally told the boy choked on the cupcake.


Two sisters accused of beating a 3-year-old to death after he took a cupcake from the kitchen are set to go on trial this week.

Glenndria Morris and LaShirley Morris are each charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault and two counts of cruelty to children in the first degree in the death of Kejuan Mason.

On October 21, 2017, police were called to a home on Cleveland Avenue in southwest Atlanta, where they found paramedics performing CPR on the boy.

According to police, Glenndria Morris — the boy’s guardian — first told officers that the boy choked on a cupcake. The police report states she then changed her story, saying that the boy choked on a cupcake, but it had been removed and he appeared OK. Then, she said, he went to sleep. When they check on him, he was unresponsive and they called 911.

Paramedics told police that it appeared the 3-year-old had not been breathing for a while. The child was transported to Atlanta Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The police report states, “From what I observed the house was infested with roaches.”

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Officer later determined that the boy died of blunt force trauma.

The boy had bruises all over his body, including his legs, back, chest, buttocks, arm, and head, according to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

Police arrested Glenddria Morrris and her sister, LaShirley. According to the indictment, LaShirley repeatedly struck the 3-year-old with a baseball bat while Glenndria spanked him on his bottom for taking a cupcake from the kitchen.

Last summer, a judge denied Glenndria Morris’ request to lower her bond from $200,000 to between $50,000 and $75,000. At that hearing, the boy’s grandmother made a tearful plea to the judge not to reduce the bond.

“She told me out of her mouth before I got the autopsy back that he had been beaten about the cupcake,” she said.

The district attorney’s office said last January that a loophole had allowed the sisters to be granted bond after their arrest.

Their trial is scheduled to begin on January 3.

When She “Cut Them Off” On The Highway, She Didn’t Expect Them To Bring Out Baseball Bats (VIDEO)

If you are a driver, then there is a good chance you’ve experienced a bout of road rage at one time or another. It often happens as a result of someone cutting you off unexpectedly or when someone makes a poor driving decision as a result of being distracted and not paying attention to their surroundings.

Whatever the case, fights amongst drivers is more common than it should be and it proves that there is a whole lot of anger in this world.

After 26-year-old Mikaela Barboza cut off a woman while driving on US route 441 in Florida, she was beaten in a parking lot moments later. Evidently, after Barboza cut one of the women off, the sister of the women happened to be in another vehicle and the two ganged up on her. Barboza was scared for her life so she pulled over into a nearby parking lot, but the women followed and blocked her into the spot.

It started out with Barboza filming the other two women as they approached her with baseball bats. At first, she is yelling that she is not scared as the first woman approaches her, and then a second woman armed with a baseball bat approaches from the other side of the parking lot. They immediately start beating her with the bat. Prior to the beating, Barboza can be heard telling them that she has a child in the car, but they obviously don’t care, as they aggressively take her out with the bat. While it’s hard to make out the rest of the exchange, the two suspects can be heard accusing Barboza of “talking about black people.”

“We were kind of wrestling and the other sister with the other bat came over and started beating me over the head,” Barboza said.

Evidently, Barboza had another passenger in the car who managed to film the entire event, capturing the brutal beating inflicted by the other two female drivers, which ended in Barboza having a broken nose and seven staples and stitches in her head.

Following the incident, Barboza took it to social media and posted the video of herself being beaten alongside the following caption…

“This was because I cut them off. Then they made it about race after they beat me with two bats. Anybody who knows me KNOWS I don’t have a racist bone in my body.”

Probably the saddest part of the entire incident is the fact that you can hear Barboza’s young child crying and screaming in the car as the women are beating her. And there is a young boy that can be seen in the suspect’s vehicle, watching on as his mother is beating another woman. This is a clear cut reason why violence causes a rippling effect in society and wrecks havoc on families. The little boy in the car is going to be marked by this incident and there is a good chance that he too will use physical violence as a way of “solving problems.”
