Texas mother allegedly sends disturbing videos abusing her child

Texas mom accused of shooting video

The boy's aunt, Ra'Neicha Broadnax, said that in recent days she received videos and pictures from Peterkin also showing the child being slapped and having a lighter held to his fingers, ABC13 reported.

Harris County prosecutors have charged a 23-year-old woman with abusing her infant son after deputies were shown videos depicting the abuse, the Harris County Sheriff's Department said.

The aunt said she began posting the upsetting images and videos on social media and claimed that the Humble Police Department was not taking the calls for help seriously. Their inaction prompted her to post the videos online, after which she said she was inundated with calls from law enforcement agencies around the nation. She was stuffing it down his throat.

An Humble mom has been accused of torturing her baby to get back at her ex-boyfriend.

A relative told police about the photos and videos after receiving them in March, saying that they were sent after the boy's father had a new girlfriend.

The baby is now in the care of relatives and is okay, according to Broadnax. She is now free on $15,000 bond. "Then a detective called me from the Humble Police Department asking where Janelle was".

"When originally called us, she did not have an address", Capt. Melinda Bradshaw said. In a photo, the prosecutor said, "officers saw. the complainant in a child vehicle sear with a plastic bag over his head, covering the face and tying it in a knot", according to KPRC 2.

But after watching the videos Broadnax forwarded them, the case was handed over to Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables, who conducted an interview.

She told the judge that her mother was picking her up from jail and would have the baby with her. Broadnax said Peterkin has a history of displaying erratic behavior and has previously vandalized her brother's vehicle.

"Her craziness is what got her on the blocked list", Broadnax told KIAH.

Broadnax said she asked police to do a welfare check on her nephew, fearing he was dead. "My brother loves his kids; he has three little babies".

Broadnax also wants her nephew to heal and never be harmed again.
