    Default Kansas City girl, 5, may face murder charges in drowning

    Kansas City girl, 5, may face murder charges in drowning - Yahoo! News

    KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) – A 5-year-old girl could face murder charges in the recent drowning of a toddler in a bathtub, police said on Thursday.

    Kansas City police are waiting for a medical examiner's report on how Jermane Johnson Jr., died, but have investigated the death as a homicide, spokesman Darin Snapp said Thursday.

    "I've been in law enforcement for 20 years and it's the youngest suspect I can remember," Snapp said. "It's extremely rare."

    Johnson, 18 months old, was in a Kansas City house on June 3rd with other children, but the 16-year-old girl who was supposed to be looking after them fell asleep, Snapp said.

    Investigators learned through interviews that a 5-year-old girl in the house got irritated at the boy, Snapp said.

    "She said she got angry because he would not stop crying and she held him under the water until he stopped crying," Snapp said.


    Snapp said a decision on to handle the case will be left up to prosecutors after the medical examiner's report is released.

    Utterly ridiculous, a 5yo certainly did not know any better.

    Oh for godsake - this is why you don't leave kids unattended like this. Kids can be very abusive. Five year olds don't have much impulse control yet. They also don't have the ability grasp long term consequenses of their actions. If anyone should be charged with anything it is the babysitter.

    ^^ i totally agree.
    i'm ok with charging the 16-year-old for something like involuntary homicide and then dropping the charges because she's punished enough in knowing a child died because she fell asleep.

    This is stupid. All kids that age are little sociopaths, it's ridiculous to hold her criminally accountable.

    I don't even think they should charge the 16 year old.

    "On Friday, an adult left a 16-year-old girl, who reportedly has mental disabilities, in charge of several younger children, including Jermane, so the adult could pick up a relative of Jermane’s at a bus stop.The relative had come into town from St. Louis to retrieve Jermane and take him home."

    JFC, I can't even begin. First, charge the "responsible" adult. Second, watch the 5 year old for the rest of her life.

    Thank you.

    The parents should be charged for letting a 16-year-old with mental disabilities watch their children.

    if she was indeed mentally disabled then i agree with you and chilly, charge the parent for being an idiot.
    poor baby.

    It doesn't say a "parent" left the child with the mentally disabled 16 year old and a mentally fucked 5 year old. It just says "an adult" left the kid there to go to a bus station to pick up someone who was there to pick up the baby the 5 year old killed. Something (some THINGS) in this story stinks.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
