Christina Hancock - Jailed After Beating Baby To Death, Stating The Child Was “Fat And Lazy”

Acton, Massachusetts (The Weekly Vice) - Christina Hancock, a 23-year-old Acton woman, was jailed and has pleaded not guilty to accusations that she beat her 13-month-old son to death, calling him "fat and lazy.".

According to the District Attorney's Office, Hancock allegedly called 911 in May to report that her baby, Kaydn Hancock, had fallen out of his crib, hit his head, and wasn't responding very well.

Authorities say that the baby was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead just 48 minutes after Hancock called for assistance.

Hancock allegedly told officers that Kaydn was happy, healthy, ate cheerios, and drank a bottle of milk before she put him to bed the evening before, investigators say.

According to the State Medical Examiner, an autopsy showed multiple contusions, lacerations, internal bleeding, hemorrhages on top of the baby’s head, bruises on his back, stomach, lung, colon, liver and thigh, abdominal bleeding and a cut lip.

Investigators say Kaydn also had a fractured arm and that Hancock allegedly delayed treatment for several days. The child was reportedly unable to crawl because of the prolonged delay of medical care for the baby's arm.

Hancock allegedly described her baby as "fat and lazy", according to police. Hancock also has a 2 year old daughter, another son which she gave up for adoption at 9 months, and is pregnant with a fourth child, police say.

She is being held in the Middlesex County Jail with out bail, pending outcome of her trial.
