A woman in Houston has been accused of placing a plastic bag over her one-year-old son’s head and burning him, in hopes she would upset the father who was dating someone else.
Jamelle Peterkin, 23, recorded herself and sent the horrifying video to her ex.
In the video, the woman is heard saying: “That’s too bad. That’s too bad. Yep, I felt the same way,” and, “Say, ‘Dad, you should have just left my mama out your bull****.’ Say that.”
Peterkin allegedly made 64 similar videos.
According to ABC 13, the boy’s aunt, Ra’Neicha Broadnax, confirmed that she had also received videos from Peterkin which began on April 13.
One text message Peterkin sent along with a photo of a plastic bag read: “Sad that he pressed to cheat after he just begged me to be his girlfriend. That’s okay. We can keep playing. Let’s see how bad y’all wanna be together.”
“My brother is incarcerated. His girlfriend was snooping through his phone and she saw he had her [Peterkin] on the ‘Do Not Disturb’ features, so she took it off and the phone vibrated for an hour straight. When she looked, there were over 300 messages from Peterkin and 64 videos,” said Broadnax.
When she saw the photos she had police visit the boy in daycare for a welfare check, but when they saw no physical signs of abuse they handed the case along with the videos to the deputy constables.
Peterkin has been charged with endangering a child. She was released on $15,000 bond and has been ordered to stay at least 200 feet away from her son.
