A wicked mother has been jailed for beating her two-year-old son to death because he wet the bed and gave her the “side-eye”.
Katrina Shangreaux, 30, was yesterday caged for 40 years after admitting the second degree murder of Kylen Shangreaux. A court heard the evil mum, of Porcupine, South Dakota, whacked the toddler with the belt, kicked him in the chest and abdomen and bit him several times during a vicious fit of rage in July 2016.
The mum of five told cops she was fed up with Kylen wetting the bed, giving her a “sideways look” and calling her “Angie” – the name of his aunt and former carer.
The youngster suffered bleeding on the brain, cigarette burns to his head and horrifically mutilated genitals. Chief Judge Jeffrey L Viken said sentencing guidelines suggest a jail term of around 30 years but increased this for Shangreaux as it was such a “horrific, depraved, torturous [and] humiliating” crime.
After his death, Shangreaux and her mother, Sonya Dubray, cleaned blood and faeces off Kylen, and cleaned up the scene. The court was told how lowlife Shangreaux claimed her son had choked on an apple when she finally called 911.
Medics who frantically tried to save Kylen discovered his body was covered in bite marks, and that 70% of his skin was covered in new and old bruises. He was dead by the time the ambulance arrived at hospital.
