Parents Tell Horrific Reason They Tortured 3-Year-Old Son To Death

A man, his girlfriend and his wife, who all lived together in a mobile home and worked at a Walmart in Pennsylvania have been charged in the murder of a 3-year-old boy.

Gary Fellenbaum and his girlfriend Jillian Tait may face the death penalty if convicted on charges of murder after police say they confessed to beating Tait’s child to death, according to WPVI-TV.

Over three days Tait admits that she and her boyfriend punched her son in the face and stomach; beat him with a homemade whip, frying pan and metal rod; and smashed his head through a wall because he wouldn’t eat his breakfast.

The boy was even hung by his feet and tied to a chair while beaten over a three day period that lead to his death.

"Our ER nurses see a lot of terrible things. But when they saw his body, they wept," authorities told WPVI-TV.

Tait also has a 6-year-old boy who is now in the care of relatives. Amber Fellenbaum, who had an 11-month-old child, was charged with child endangerment for not calling police. Authorities said there were no signs of drug use found in the home.

"When you go to bed tonight, say a prayer for little Scotty McMillan. The brief nightmare that was his life... is over,” Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan told WPVI-TV.
