A 5-month-old baby was taken off of life support this weekend after police say he was brutally beaten by his mother's 27-year-old boyfriend.
Little Andres Bravo was brought to the hospital in horrific condition: he had brain injuries, a lung contusion, two black eyes, and bruises on his buttocks. It didn't take investigators long to figure out that the story mom Sascha Marie Garcia and boyfriend Antwan James Sawyer told them -- that Andres had fallen out of his crib -- didn't ring true. Sawyer, who was reportedly caring for the child at the time of the incident while the baby's mother allegedly worked her job as an exotic dancer, was first charged with aggravated child abuse until the charges were upgraded to attempted felony murder.
If the allegations against him are true, Sawyer deserves the book thrown at him for killing an innocent infant. But his mother, despite her poor decisions in life, does not deserve the same fate.
