Severely tortured toddlers mom and her boyfriend arrested

January 5th, 2008 by | Permalink

A 17 month old boy who had cooking oil, heated in a frying pan, poured on his genitals as well as beaten to the point of sustaining spinal injuries is recovering, but the extent of his injuries and whether or not he’ll be able to walk again have not yet been reported.

Perhaps the boyfriend and the mother don’t know what it feels like to be punched in the stomach by someone 15X bigger than you and have frying grease poured on their genitals and a hair-dryer used to burn off their skin, so I recommend that they find out. If it’s good enough for their baby, surely it’s good enough for them.

We are failing in protecting our most vulnerable. I don’t know what can be done, if anything, but it seems like this happens far, far too often. Once is too much.

And of course! — It happened in Florida. Surprise. Surprise.

The mother of an Apopka toddler severely burned and beaten was arrested today on one count of child neglect, police said.

Marlita S. Stokes, 23, was at work when her boyfriend Darlanne Toussaint, 24, used his fist to smash the 17-month-old’s chest and back, and a blow dryer to burn the child’s skin. The boy who suffered second-degree burns on his genitals, back, chest and head, is in stable condition at Florida Hospital Orlando this morning.

Toussaint was baby-sitting girlfriend Marlita Stokes’ two children at the couple’s home in the 1900 block of Nicole Lee Circle when the incident occurred Thursday morning, police said. The other child was not hurt.

    I can’t for the life of me figure out what goes through these people’s minds when it comes to torturing/killing their own children. I honestly believe that people who do these horrific things to children should have them done to them as “part” of their punishment. Then they BOTH need to be sterilized so that they can not have the opportunity to do this to other children. I also think that they need to be “Registered” child abusers and not be aloud within 500-1000 feet of ANY child. Sick bastards!!

  • Gabriela

    I surely do hope the parents know how the baby feels. Obviously they do and sure like it because no sane parent would want their child to go through that… let-alone a 1 1/2 year old. They arent event developed. I hope that lady and her boyfriend learn from their mistakes. Obviously those people werent happy with their own lives that they had to ruin it for their son. NO person should go through life knowing that they cant walk or be firtile because of what their parents did.
    This article makes me so angry and I would really look forward to watching this lady die. No one deserves to have that happen to them therefor that B**** should pay for what she did to an innocent child.

  • Krystal and Lauren

    i can’t believe any person in their right mind would harm a child. not only harming a child is bad but what they did was unhuman. i think they should be treated like that for their punishment and rot in jail. what horrible, horrible people. not being able to reproduce because of your parents sick pleasure hurting your genatals is heart breaking for the child and any humane person in the world.

  • Rylee

    This story is a horrible one. It just makes me sick to think of it.

  • maggie

    i dont even kno wat to say aboyt this story, people that do this, especially to there own children should be forced to go through everything that they have done to there kids…i mean who would want to hurt a innocent little child….psycho *naughty word*

  • http://alisha-bailey-96.piczo.com alisha

    i cant belive that this happend to a 7 month old boy i mean the people must have only done that because they knew that the young boy could not have faught back so they knew he was more defencless

  • layla kayla

    i think dats really mest up to ababi i thinm dat person you die in jail is not right to do dat to babi i wish imet dat person iwiil do dat to them

  • nicola

    I feel sick to the stomach when I hear about these poor children who go through such horific treatment… the abusers are cowards and they all need to be given a lethal injection to rid them of this world we live in…………………..
    My heart goes out to all the kids that are put through these utterly unthinkable acts. God bless you all

  • Allison

    this is so disgusting. I don’t know why a human being can be so cruel to something so precious. I hope the parents burn in hell for this.

  • brittany

    what are you thinking when you do this to your child, or when you let some man put his hands on your child? something is very wrong with you!

  • Lila

    This is not to everyone. This is to parents who have abusive thoughts towards their children. You should seek counseling and stay consistent to doctor or counselor visits. You should stay consistent with doctor’s or counselor’s instruction. There shouild be free counseling services availibe, or PSYCHIATRIC or THERAPUTIC services, try the number “411″ for information on “Counseling or Doctoral Services”. They may be able to direct you to doctors professionals or Health Insurance Plans. Free counselor’s could be anybody holding an Associates Degree or more. Free counselores may also be College Interns with more college credits than an Associates or less credits than an Assocites. Free Counselors are NOT required to with hold criminal information. Professional PSYCHIATRISTS and THERAPISTS by the state’s or country’s law are required to withhold criminal information. Meaning criminal infromation, Free Counselor MUST tell to the authorities. Criminal information, PSYCHIATRISTS and THERAPISTS (Doctor’s Degree) must NOT tell to the authorities. Enrolling for Medical Health Plans Is what you need. Do what you MUST to qualify. That will make you a patient of a PSYCHIATRISTS or THERAPISTS.

    If you have a history of abuse with your child or children and are not to seeking any counseling or doctoral help, you should consider giving your child up for adoption. A failed parent(s), or guardian(s) is not a parent or guardian who fails to raise the child, but a parent or guardian who fails to give the child the best care they need. The best care they need is love and support, and a positive upbringing. If you refuse counseling or doctoral help, then giving the child or children the best care they need would be to let some one else who is more suitable, and righteous to take care of them. That is the works of a loving and prosperous parent who does not wish to seek aany counseling or doctoral help. They should give them up for adoption. Once they reach the age of maturity they will understand your decision. They will love you for it.

    If you do not wish to give your child or your children away to adoption becauase you believe that they may be abused, then you must get help for yourself if you are an abusive parent or guardian. You must seek counseling and doctoral help. Remember, to decline the option of giving them up for adoption because you fear they may be abused, maybe in vain if you yourself do not stop abusing them. The child or children will not leave an abusive situation if you do not stop abusing them.

    If you do not wish to seek counseling, doctoral help, or any other method to better your life or your kid(s) life, then another option would be, to let the LAW handle you and your children. Your children will be happy because they will have a happy positive life if the Law get’s involved. Once they reach the age of maturity they will not be mad at you. They will love and appreciate you…. as their parent. They will remember what you did for them. You will not be forgotten by them, you will not be their abuser, but their hero. They will not forget that you chose to save their lives instead.

    LAW: meaning to turn yourself or yourselves in to the Police Authorities.

    Your children will love and appreciate you forever for what you did for them and what you did for…. yourself, or yourselves.

    PSYCHIATRISTS and THERAPISTS are there to make things right as well.

    DO WHAT YOU MUST TO QUALIFY FOR MEDICAL INSURANCE!! (My mother says it a crime how much money the medical field has and so many people with out any medical insurance.)
    OR
    GIVE YOUR CHILD or CHILDREN UP FOR ADOPTION.

    DON’T LEAVE YOU CHILD OR CHILDREN IN A BAD SITUATION!

  • sherry

    my heart goes out to the children that have to go through this, and the thought of it happening everyday hurts my heart…

  • http://www.imperfectparent.com Emily

    This is so true. If the parents don’t know what it feels like to get punched in the stomach by someone 15X bigger than you, get frying gease poured over their genitals, get their skin burned off with a blow dryer, so yes, i too STRONGLY suggest… wait. I believe someone should demonstrate the pain it causes. ON THEM!!! This is just stupid and heartless to do to an INNOCENT child when he/she has done nothing wrong. And if you believe they have done something so wrong to you to deserve this… let me just say… YOU NEED SERIOUS HELP!!!

  • beza

    omfg that is realy crule they slould be locked up 4 life i mean A 7 MONTH OLD BABY they dont have the right to be parents TAKE THE BABY OFF THEM i hope the social sevace were involved!!!!!!!

  • Kimiko

    There should be a law where the wrong doers take the experience tht the child did…..! But 2x worse. I swear i wanna hurt people tht hurt children!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/nightmare4290 Megan

    I’m having my 1st child in 6 weeks. I cant even comprehend why someone would even concieve of doing this to an innocent vulnurable child! It makes me weep for the child and it makes me want to do to the parents 3 fold what they did to the child. AN EYE FOR AN EYE!

  • Mariah

    I HATE those people who do such things!!!! I agree! the should have that done to them so they know how it feels!!
    Those supid..*bad word* brainless *another bad word*
    I hope that someday people will come to their senses!!

  • Berek

    I feel so bad for these children its horrible!!.. I really hate it when they kill there own loving children they have the right to go to jail..

  • marcella

    My God, how can any1 do such horrific things to an inocent child i strongly believe that we need to come together and lets try to put a stop to all this abuse, my heart and love goes out to all those who have suffered in the hands of their parents or any1 in that matter. gob bless you, it just brings me to tears to think of the pain you poor lil bodys would have been in

  • http://women4thelord.ning.com Amber

    I hope these two get the same treatment they gave this innocent little boy. They are sick and need help. Jail will do them no good they need to be put in the crazy house for the rest of there lives.

  • http://Google Del-Del

    These people are sick.They should suffer worst than that baby.They should slowly and painfully.They are sick in thier mind.They must be mental,and stupid.

  • LOZZIE

    i think that the comments left by all these people should be brought to action… i think there should be some kind of petition that allows torture to be brought on to those who chose to torture themselves. to harm a young innocent defenseless child is inhumane and they should be brought to justice.
    i hope this boy lives a happy life and is too young to remember the so called “parents” he had. i hope he goes to another family that will look after him and love him as if he were their own.

  • Melanie

    People like this shouldnt be allowd to live. In a case like this i feel the death sentence should be brought back. How can a parent feel the need to abuse their children, some people out there are crying in pain because they are not able to concieve and here we have people that are given the most precious gift god can ever offer and this is the way to behave. What can a small defenceless child do to protect themselves, that is why parents are there to protect love and guide their children. The children are the future of this world. We have to be there to help them and mould them, I personally feel that these to should be brought to jusice!!!!!

  • Samantha

    God. i wish that mother and bastard boyfriend of hers get hot oil poured over them. That rubbish man couldnt find someone his age to pick on so he abuses a baby, blood coward. Im sure that his mother and father abused him and hated him. He is one sick shit and the mother i wish she gets hell in jail.

  • jacqueline

    ..my god,this article makes me wanna cry.:[.

  • Rama

    I hope to god these two spend eternity in hell. I am legit crying over the inhumanity of this situation. I thank god everyday for having amazing parents, and great siblings. Phsycologically mental parents like those mentioned in this article should be hanged, and that would be a mercy for them. I am going to start an organization of child abuse awareness, for all those poor, innocent children who are killed everyday by their own parents.

  • brooke

    this story is awful! i have a 17 month old and i love him with all my heart he is such a precious gift and i just do not understand how anyone could hurt any child wether its their child or someone elses!! why go thru the pain of pregnancy and child birth to have a child and then put the poor buba threw that kind of torture, i pray that this child has a great recovery and can go on to live a healthy, happy life with people who will cherish him the way he deserve to be, my thoughts are with u little man x

  • http://imperfectparent wanda

    For the life of me I just can’t seem to understand some of these sick people. If you can’t deal with a child crying. Then you have no rights to be around them period. And if you have the nerves to do what this sick puppy did. I feel he should get the same treatment. Everything he done to that little baby should be done to him.

  • http://imperfectparent wanda

    And about his mom she needs the same thing because I feel like you should take better care of your child. These babies depend on us when they come into this awful world. And she just let this happen to her child. I know if that punkass man did all of that to this baby. He did not just start to be mean to this baby.He had to have done something in front of her.Or she have had to notice something was wronge before it went this far.So she need her ass beat down too!

  • Julie

    theres so much evil in this world and its never going to go away. theres always going to be horrible cruel unfeeling people out there doing those things. i wish we had a better justice system to give them what they deserve but there never will be. the cries of children will always be unheard. but I beleive those sorry bastards will get what they deserve. I believe God won’t let it go unpunished.

  • http://taylor Taylor

    nobbody should be treated this way, this is cruel,,, im there for this little toddler

  • Nahomy

    It’s disgusting how these people act toward children nothing in this world excuses their behavior nothing, their actions prove to all of us that evil really does exist in this world and it needs to be stopped immediately

  • angel

    Oh mu goodness… i am 13 years old and i am so heartfelf for these vulnerable children and i want to become a specialist in this area when i grow older…. i am so sad that fellow americans can do such horrible thing.. and to an infant as well,

  • Veronica

    Hey, wait! I forgot that the baby is still alive; he just can’t move anymore…boo flippin hoo! Anyway, I hope he finds a loving home.

  • saffy

    this is disgusting and we have to stop it. child abuse of any kind should never happen because even if your mother only slaps you, the mental damage is unbarable. if these people cant control their tempers they should learn to use birth control instead.

  • Danika

    all i can say is oh my dear god.. how can somone do that to a poor innocent child and live with themselfs?

  • andrea

    I have children and i have also been in jail for other sad transgresions not child abuse what i know about jail is that if these fuckers arent in p.c. protective custody. they will be offed in an.y. minute and you never know mistakes are made and some times these assholes somtimes mistakenly get put in genral population. we can only hope!!!!

  • Chontay

    I really don’t understand why parents would be this to their on flesh and blood. How does it really feel to torture/kill your own child? WHY!! I really want to know WHY! What does the child do to feel this unforgetable pain. My heart goes out to the child, and I hope that he will get thorugh the hardships that happened to him.

  • http://www.imperfectparent.com grace

    my heart crys out for these CHILDREN in pain im sorry that someting like this is happening this needs to stop. i strongly belive that if you could do this to a CHILD a BABY some one that cant defend them self i think when you have been coughts that what ever you did to put that CHILD in pain you so get the same thing done to you if you could do that to a CHILD a BABY why not do that back to you see how you like it.

One day a will be a mother and WILL NOT be any thing like they were. And i know i will not do ANYTHING, even close to what they did!

  • Kiko.Panda

    You know, how the hell would they like boiled OIL down their pants? they’d love it right? cause they think that the kid doesn’t have any feelings!
    i hate people who make small kids suffer-especially at that age! they just don’t get it that they’re so damn lucky to have that baby… some people would DIE to have a baby but they can’t!

    but… nowadays what happens to you? you just get send to prison for the rest of your life…
    if i were the juge… oh the glory! I’D NOT HANG THEM OR STICK A GUN TO THEIR HEAD, BUT WHEN IM DONE WITH PUNISHING THEM THEY’LL BE BEGGING ME TO LET THEM DIE!

    don’t you people agree? or do you think that they sould just go to prison?

  • Jennifer

    I started to cry as I read this story. This is one of the worst thinks I have ever heard of done to a child. All I can do is pray for the children who go threw things like this. I can’t help but to imagine this happening to my baby, and It enrages me. The pain that this poor child must have been in, my God. You have to be a heartless piece of shit to look at a little baby’s face filled with tears as you hurt him again and again. what a monster. I don’t believe in taking a life, But life in prison sounds like the right place for a person like that. They should never give any less of a sentence for any crimes against kids, never. I say lock em up and throw away the key.

  • Shailyn

    My mother gave birth to two beautiful twins in the year 2008.
    I looked into their eyes the moment I saw them for the very first time, those babies are goregous. I read and/or hear about babies and infants under the age of 1 year, and how they have been brutaly beaten and/or murdered. Then I look into my brother and sisters eyes, and cannot bring myself to imagine anything of the sort happening to them. You know the expression, “I would take a bullet for you”, well you usually say that to a loved one, or a very close friend… Anyways, You go through 9 months with that child being within you, inside of your whom, and you’re going to turn around and beat that child to a bloody pulp?
    What in the world are you thinking about whilest the child is growing within yourself?
    Are you plotting the childs death?
    Are you desperatly waiting to see the expression on the face of your child when enflicting pain upon them?
    Are you planning on hearing the plead?
    Why would you put yourself through the birthing process if you’re just going to murder them?
    I cry, I mean CRY when I read and/or hear these things, I can’t imagine wanting to hear the cries, the sight of their faces when you take all of your strength and force it to their delicate beings…
    God Bless, those in need, God Bless.
    And God, torture those who have taken everything from a child, TORTURE them…
    I can only hope that one day, these victims will be justified, that they will be able to tell their side of the story describe how they felt, and then imagine, the parents are going to feel bad about wht they had done to that child, but, why is it when they were doing the crime it was a laughing matter?
    Something to enjoy?, God bless this child.
    All my love for this one to make it.

  • Yuri

    Ugh i feel sick to my stomach…..Who in their right mind would hurt an innocent child in such way. It is heart breaking when thing like this happen. The boy is only 17months his life depended on them what a disappointment. This couple are not even human and are insane. No one desevers to go through so much pain especially children….Only God know their punishment

  • lottie

    what the hell is wrong with these people that would make them inflict such torture on a innocent, vulenrable young child, incapable of defending himself???? they should be locked up and the key thrown away.

  • TIFFANY

    THIS ALMOST MADE ME SICK TO MY STOMACH. I HAVE TWO KIDS AND SOMETIMES THEY GET ON MY NERVES SO BAD I COULD SCREAM BUT THE THOUGHT OF HURTING THEM HAS NEVER COME TO MY MIND. HOW COULD PPL DO SUCH CRUEL THINGS TO THEIR CHILDREN. WHERE ARE THE DSS? THE DSS HARASS PPL THAT ARENT EVEN BEATING THEIR KIDS..WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS ARE BEING DONE!!!!

  • Vashti

    It hurts me down to my soul to know that a beautiful gift from God can be handled in such an inhumane manner. Those individuals do not deserve to be called his parents and the so called mother should be hung. I’ll keep the little angel in my prayers. I hope those two burn in hell for the pain they put that baby through. I sit here with tears in my eyes.

    There is so much we can do for the children who have to endure this form of abuse. All they need is a voice.

    OMG i cant believe this its bamg out of order wot ppl do to their children it makes me feel sick 2 know that ppl in this world do that to lil kids why have kids if they are going to mistreat them like this.!

  • Rodney

    Ohh trust me when the others in jail find out why he’s there he will get to know the meaning of pain.People who abuse kids do NOT get treated well in prison.So I’m hoping Rosco the weight lifter in jail for triple murder finds out about this guy and is his new cellmate.

  • sad citizen

    that poor poor little baby it hurts me so much to even imagine what she went through how hard she must have faught now she can rest and she wont have to worry about those sick twisted people she used to call parents!!!!!!

    I FEEL SO BAD FOR THE LITTLE GUY. HE COULDN’T HAVE DONE ANYTHING SO BAD TO DESERVE SUCH CRUEL ACTIONS.

  • carry

    I unfortunantly can relate some what to this case, My fiance’s 12 month old daughter was rushed to the hospital 3 days after her first birthday with two severe skull fractures cause by her mother and had to have emergency surgery to save her life. The sad part of this story is even though we have temporary custody of his daughter the mother has never been arrested and is allowed to have supervised visits with the child. I wish there was something we could do to keep her from seeing her but they say it’s the law and we have to abide by it or she will be taken from him.

  • Danielle

    its shocking to read stories like this, i believe that these parents should have the exact same thing done to them. that way they know how it feels my heart aches for the little baby who trusted this adult and endured this unimaginable pain

  • Katie

    Rodney, it’d be pretty ironic if people who are also in prison and convicted of crimes as well would hurt or kill the mom and her boyfriend for child abuse when they’re not any better because, like I said, they’re in prison too, aren’t they?? and I guess the weight lifter convicted of triple murder would be killing these two for something that’s not as bad as he did?? because at least they didn’t murder the kid.

  • Charlie

    This is disgusting i was shaking with anger as i read this! some poor people carn’t have chirldren yet theese monsters torture them! i hope they rot! They should stop testing on animals and test on theese sick monsters!! how could you do that to a child, somthing insid they’re messed up head should stop them! they should torture them as much as they have tortured theese poor children!!

    i dont think that its right for children to get abused/murdred/beaten even killed in thier own homes i just dont think that its right at all. parents need to realise that a child safety have to come first.

  • Mia

    Ouch
    I could never recall a single time when I have been treated like that, although i have seen it in newspapers.
    God bless the child and help him heal.

    Why do you say “And of course! — It happened in Florida. Surprise. Surprise.” Is FL the worst place for child abuse?

  • brandi

    my god…this hurts my SOUL! I have 2 small children and if something like this happened to them….it would take everything in me not to seek out that person and do the SAME to them if not worse. How can people do this to babies….im sick right now. bless that poor baby’s heart…

    That little “Happened in Florida, Suprise, suprise.” is the BIGGEST sterotype I have ever heard and was very unnecessary. How dare you make such a lovely topic of going against child abuse into such a stereotypical, journalistic story on Florida. You don’t get out much do you? Florida is perfect. We have a few crimes here and there, but so does the rest of America. Pick on a state your own size!
