Sorry if its been posted.. But how can people be so cruel..? This is just insane to me and so very sad :(



PEORIA, Ill. – A central Illinois couple faces first-degree murder charges in the death of their 5-month-old baby, who was found unresponsive in a car seat that had been placed in a crib.
Both Tracey Hermann, 21, and James Sargent, 23, appeared Wednesday in Peoria County Circuit Court in the death of Benjamin Sargent.
The charges state the parents' actions or lack thereof, were "brutal and heinous . . . indicative of wanton cruelty," factors that could mean they face up to 100 years in prison if convicted.
The 5-month-old was dropped off at his parents' house on Feb. 4, strapped into his car seat. Eight days later, he was found in the same position, said Peoria County State's Attorney Kevin Lyons during a bond hearing for the parents.
"He died from starvation due to neglect from these two defendants, his parents," Lyons said. "It's the worst case of child neglect we have seen since the turn of this century."

It was 5 years ago. The father got 100 years, the mother got 50 years. It was a well known news story at the time. I don't get why you'd post a child abuse case that was dealt with in the courts 5 years ago, when there's so many other abused children out there who need our attention right this minute.

This is what happens when people rely on facebook for their news.
