Police: Mom Admits To Kicking Son, 3, After Initially Blaming His 9-Year-Old Brother

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque mother is facing child abuse charges in the death of her young son.

Officer Simon Drobik says police were called to a home in the city’s northeast heights Friday night after getting a 911 call from the mother, 38-year-old Synthia Varela-Casaus.

She initially told police her 9-year-old son was playing with his 3-year-old brother when the older brother was thrown from a bouncing toy horse and hit his head.

The boy was pronounced dead after being taken to an Albuquerque hospital.

Medical personnel saw multiple injuries on the boy’s body. Drobik says the mother later told detectives she kicked the boy in the stomach during an argument, causing him to hit his head.

The mother told detectives she repeatedly kicked the boy while he was on the floor.

    I wonder what made this cowardly mother admit that it was she who harmed the child. Usually cowards like that hold the secret of how they abused children to their death. It is good she finally admitted it. Perhaps this might be the beginning of her healing, perhaps.

    To all mothers who are abusing their children, know this, even when you do that in private, God sees every slap, every kick, every smash, and every bit of harm that you do to your own children. You might be able to food the media or the police but you will never fool the God of peace.
