Woman arrested in boy's death previously convicted in 'torture' death case

44-year-old woman convicted of fatal child neglect in 2003 death of 1-year-old

MILWAUKEE - Court records show one of the two women arrested in the death of a 7-year-old child in Milwaukee was previously convicted of neglecting a child who died from his injuries.

In the most recent case, police say the boy had numerous injuries when he was brought to the hospital Tuesday and died a short time later. Two women, ages 44 and 47, were arrested in the death. Two men were also arrested for failing to prevent bodily harm.

Court documents show the 44-year-old woman was convicted of fatal child neglect in the 2003 death of a 1-year-old boy. She was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The woman's sister and teenage daughter were also convicted in the death.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that in the 2003 case, then-prosecutor Mark Williams listed the abuses the baby suffered in court and said, "The child was literally tortured in many different ways. He was tortured in many different ways."
