(Meredith/AP)– A South Dakota female implicated of beating her 2-year-old boy to death after he wet his bed has been sentenced to 40 years in federal jail.
Katrina Shangreaux, 30, of Porcupine on the Pine Ridge Reservation, pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder in the July 2016 death of 2-year-old Kylen Shangreaux. She was sentenced Tuesday.
The Rapid City Journal reported Shangreaux admitted to hitting her son multiple times with a belt, tossing him to the ground and kicking him in the abdominal area. She stated in a composed declaration that she lost her temper after she came house to discover the kid had damp his bed.
Shangreaux wrote that she became even angrier when the child “provided her a sideways look.” The abuse stopped after she “recognized how terribly she had actually hurt him.”
She also said she had actually been drinking alcohol and taking discomfort medication moments prior to the attack, according to court documents.
Shangreaux and her mother, Sonya Dubray, reportedly called for assistance after the kid was up to the ground and soiled himself as they aimed to provide him apple juice. They cleaned up his blood and feces before calling 911.
By the time the 2-year-old young boy reached the hospital, he ‘d been dead for about four hours, stated the physician who treated him.
An autopsy revealed he passed away from blunt force injury. The physician who carried out the autopsy stated old and brand-new contusions covered about 70 percent of his body.
Dubray was also jailed in connection to the kid’s murder. She was charged with damaging proof and accessory to first-degree murder, however pleaded innocent to those offenses.
