Parents Give Horrible Reason For Torturing Their 3-Year-Old Son To Death

In a horrific story of child abuse out of Pennsylvania, a man and his girlfriend are facing charges relating to the murder of a 3-year-old boy (the girlfriend’s son with another man). It seems the three all lived together in a mobile home with three children and worked at a nearby Walmart.

According to local media sources, Gary Fellenbaum and his girlfriend Jillian Tait may face the death penalty if convicted on charges of murder after police say they confessed to the brutal crime.

Tait has apparently admitted that she and her boyfriend punched her three-year-old son in the face and stomach, beat him with a whip, frying pan and a metal rod, and even smashed his head through a wall when he wouldn’t eat his breakfast one morning.

She also described how her helpless son was both hung by his feet and tied to a chair while he was beaten over a three day period that eventually led to his death.

The abuse was so bad that it shocked experienced law enforcement and medical personnel. “Our ER nurses see a lot of terrible things. But when they saw his body, they wept,” hospital managers noted in an interview with a local TV station.

Of note, Tait also has a 6-year-old son who has been removed from her custody and is now in the care of relatives. Wife Amber Fellenbaum, who also has an 11-month-old child, is facing charges of child endangerment for not calling police while the abuse was going on. Surprisingly, police report there were no signs of drug use after a thorough search of the residence.

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan was also emotionally impacted by this tragic case. He commented in a recent press conference: "When you go to bed tonight, say a prayer for little Scotty McMillan. The brief nightmare that was his life... is over.”
