Vastie Coleman - Charged With Whipping Child To Death With Cord, Belt Not Used Because She Had Already Broken It While Beating Child

Houston, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Vastie Coleman, a 27-year-old Texas woman was jailed Sunday after she allegedly whipped her 4-year-old son to death with a cord.

According to Houston Police, an investigation was launched Sunday when paramedics were called to Coleman's residence to revive her 4-year-old child. Detectives were dispatched to the scene when it became evident that the child had been abused prior to his death.

Investigators say Coleman became angry when 4-year-old Kyron wet himself while riding in the car. In retaliation, Coleman beat the child with a cord until the little boy stopped breathing. She then placed the boy into a bath tub until paramedics arrived. The boy was taken to Northeast Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

As paramedics tried to revive the child, Coleman reportedly told them "I did it, I beat him, it's all my fault and I don't care what happens to me."

When detectives interviewed the little boy's two sisters, the children stated that Coleman would routinely beat them and that she beat Kyron with a cord because "the belt was broken because mom kept whipping so hard it broke into pieces."

A medical exam revealed that Kyron's body also showed signs of previous abuse, according to Child Protective Services.

Coleman was booked into the Harris County Jail and charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury. She is currently being held without bond pending a formal hearing.

The two surviving sisters, ages 6 and 8, have been placed into temporary foster care until permanent arrangements can be made for them.
