Death Penalty Sought for Parents Who Killed 3-Year-Old After Hanging Him Upside Down For Beatings
The death penalty is being sought for Pennsylvania parents who spent days beating their three-year-old son until he died, authorities say.
Jillian Tait, 31, and Gary Lee Fellenbaum, 23, are charged with killing Scott McMillan, 3, Tait’s son by another man.
The death penalty is being sought for a couple who allegedly tortured their three-year-old son in a house of horrors where dents in the wall are though to show where they hung him upside down to whip him.
The Chester County District Attorney’s Office told the pair at their arraignments this week that prosecutors will seek the death penalty against them because the boy died by torture and was younger than 12.
Officials said the Pennsylvania couple went car shopping, bought pizza and took a nap as Scott lay dying after weeks of escalating abuse that ended in three days of systematic torture.
They are accused of laughing as Scott was hung upside down and whipped, striking him repeatedly with a frying pan, and eventually beating him to death.
Let’s hope these creeps fry.
