Authorities say a Harper Woods woman who told police she threw her 8-month-old son against a wall is expected to be charged in the infant's death.
Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer told The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that the 20-year-old woman could be arraigned as soon as Wednesday afternoon. She was being held at the Warren Police Department.
Dwyer called it "a monstrous act."
Authorities say the child had been in Warren and was brought to a Warren hospital on Monday afternoon by his mother and her boyfriend. Police say the boy had multiple skull fractures and several broken ribs.
The child was transferred to Children's Hospital of Michigan, where he died Tuesday.

    So many people want kids and cann't have them but a piece of garbage like this could. I am also in favor of death in this case.

    I just keep asking my self "how could she do that?" I have to agree, this is a good reason for the death penalty.

    This tore me up to the point of tears for how on earth could an adult do this to a child! That little man thrown around like a rag doll. She will face the ultimate judge in the end.

    Please throw her under a bus. I will never understand this kind of sickness.

    Women who do this sort of thing should be taken to a local hospital and given a complete Hysterectomy. This sickens me and it happens way too often. God Bless the Child♥

    I have no words other than to say I hope this poor little man can rest in peace because it sure doesn't sound like he had a peaceful little life here on Earth.
