    Default Toddler Hung by Feet, ‘Tortured and Beaten to Death’ for Not Eating Breakfast

    Toddler Hung by Feet, ‘Tortured and Beaten to Death’ for Not Eating Breakfast

    Police in Pennsylvania say a man and his girlfriend are charged with brutally murdering the woman’s 3-year-old son.

    Gary Fellenbaum and Jillian Tait were arrested Thursday morning in West Calin Township.

    On Tuesday, authorities were called to their residence on a report of an unresponsive child. EMTs found 3-year-old Scott McMillan suffering from bruises, lacerations and puncture wounds all over his body, according to WPVI.

    Fellenbaum, Tait and another witness confessed that the boy had been beaten with blunt and sharp objects, whipped, taped to a chair with electrical tape and beaten and hung up by his feet and beaten, leading to his death.

    According to police, they beat the boy to death using homemade weapons like a whip, a curtain rod and an aluminum strip.

    Tait told police the beating began when the boy wouldn’t eat his breakfast.

    “Little Scotty McMillan is dead,” Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said. “Over a three day period … he was systematically tortured and beaten to death. He was punched in the face and in the stomach. He was scourged with a homemade whip. He was lashed with a metal rod. He was tied to a chair and beaten. He was tied upside down by his feet and beaten. His head was smashed through a wall.”

    Tait said Fellenbaum routinely beat her 6 and 3-year-old boys. On one occasion, she said he strung the boys up by their feet and beat them while she and Fellenbaum laughed.

    The 6-year-old boy is now in the care of relatives.

    Fellenbaum and Tait are both charged with murder and Hogan said he will be seeking the death penalty.

    Law enforcement veterans told WPVI that they had never seen a child abuse murder case like this one.

    This story was originally published by KTLA sister station WGPH and was distributed by Tribune Broadcasting.

    That DA is really upset over this one.

    It's cases like this that really makes me think about my stance on the death penalty.

    Sadly, this happened right down the road from me. I'm a parent of a three year old, and I can't even IMAGINE what kind of monsters would do something like this... It's so heartbreaking. There was a toy drive for the surviving six year old. There's also a petition floating around on the internet to charge the man's estranged wife with murder as well, as she lived in the same house as the other two, and was aware of the abuse.

    I admit the story is not a pleasant read, but life is full of things that are not very pleasant.

    Sorry, but it's not a fairy tale world. Should no one ever discuss The Holocaust because it is disturbing?

    Go watch some more 80's butt rock videos and drink Jack Daniels and don't read my stories if you don't like them. It's that simple.

    I post plenty of tough stories on other forums and people don't cry that it hurts their little virgin eyes.

    I think I hear lovemachine heading this way. Unless he's tired of debating this tiring topic.

    Basically, you're right. The lengthy legal appeals' process is very expensive. It's not a deterrent. Innocent lives have been mistakenly put to death.

    But I'm still in favor of capital punishment. At least they wouldn't have the chance to get an early release, or escape, and commit more violent crimes. We need to shorten the appeals' process and address the corruption in the courtrooms.

    People who are not in favor of the death penalty will often cite innocent people who have been put to death, and that is certainly horrible. I always use the Cheshire home invaders as prime candidates for my support of the death penalty. They were caught escaping, they left DNA at the scene, and they both ADMITTED to the crimes. We could have SAVED a LOT of money by not giving them so much care, food and appeals if we had just put them down 7 years ago.

    I understand the emotional argument. It's totally understandable.

    I feel the same way when I first read about cases like this. My gut reaction is to want them to fry.

    But taking the emotion out of it, it just makes less sense. And that is something that I wasn't willing to accept myself at first.

    They should get death. It really has nothing to do with emotion to me, when crime is heinous the perpetrator should lose their life. I really a have a huge problem with the long process especially when the evidence is damning. Public hanging would probably do more to make others think about their actions than the sterile execution we now use. They should also not be separated from general population. Do not give them the comfort of being in solitary confinement.
