Bringing a life into the world is arguably the most beautiful achievement of any parent. That’s why when parents inflict harm on their children, there’s much outrage and outcry for the parents. That’s the case with this story…
This man, Kane Kennedy, is just 20 years old, yet he faces life in prison for what he did for his son. By his own admission, authorities found out that he did the unthinkable to his 7-month old. He twisted his testicles, stuck fingers down the boy’s tiny throat and eventually choked him out … until the baby passed away.
The baby is Oskar Jobey-Kennedy. After authorities found the boy unresponsive, they transported him to the hospital where he was dead on arrival. The baby suffered from scratches as well and the medical team even found bruises on his private parts.
The baby’s mother, Tia Jobey, is just 19 years old. Tia told the police that when Kane wouldn’t have cannabis, he would become paranoid and act irrationally. “I’m trying to make sure Oskar is happy and safe and while you’re addicted to weed and violent and abusive, he’s not safe at all,” read one of her messages to the baby’s father.
Tia didn’t leave Kane because she did not want to become a single mother. The couple had been together for three years and authorities said that the relationship may have “blinded her reality.” As for Kane, he pleaded guilty and faces life in prison. Tia, on the other hand faces 2 and a half years behind bars.
