3-Year-Old Girl Brutally Beaten and Starved May Not Survive, Couple Charged with Child Abuse

UPDATE: 3:02 P.M. – Officials now say that the mother and boyfriend are both charged with Child Abuse. According to officials, Kimberly Lashawn Bedwell, 28, and Eric Latrone Sanders, 26, were originally charged on January 25th. On Friday, Sanders was booked on additional child abuse charges. Information regarding the mother’s arrest was not included in a media release provided by officials this morning.

ORIGINAL REPORT:

HUDSON (PASCO) – A 3-year-old girl is clinging to life today after officials say she was viciously beaten and deprived of food and water for over two months.

According to reports, on January 17th the victim was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital after she was found unresponsive and with serious injuries to her head and body. Upon further examination, the little girl appeared to be malnourished and dehydrated to the point that her bones were visible through the skin. The victim was found to have a subdural hematoma (Brain Bleed) and damage to her liver. Due to her extensive injuries she was airlifted to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg for more specialized pediatric care. Doctors say her injuries are so severe that she may not survive.

Officials say the man suspected of committing the abuse, 26-year-old Eric Latrone Sanders, denies hurting the child and says they were playing together but doesn’t know how she was injured.

According to the victim’s mother, Sanders began abusing her daughter around November 1st of 2016. She claims Sanders would kick, punch, and “maliciously” whip the victim with a belt numerous times. She further explained that Sanders’ abuse was the result of the child peeing herself, stating “Because diapers cost too much – the victim should learn not to pee herself.”

Investigators say on January 17th Sanders kicked the victim in the back, grabbed her by the throat, picked her up over his head, and body slammed her to the floor.

On Friday detectives arrested Sanders and charged him with Aggravated Child abuse. He is currently held on a $53,000 bond, according to an arrest affidavit provided by officials; however, the Pasco County Sheriff’s website lists the bond at a total of $115,000.

The investigation continues.

  • I asked RNRF about updates on the child’s condition. No one is releasing information. Since she is a minor, everyone’s hands are tied. We won’t know anymore until a parent or guardian speaks out, or she dies. Only then can her condition be made public again.

  • this is terrible and awful this stuff happens. this is probably one case of thousands happening right now. I felt ill to even read this story. this is beyond horrible. torturing small children over and over is beyond disgusting. there should never be a bond for these crimes. Bring back the bird cages, public shackles and chain gangs. We have gotten so weak on violent criminals. I guarantee you would be hard pressed to find a single person in the area that has sympathy for his actions. Now he gets free food medical free shelter free clothing etc all at the law abiding tax payers expense. Our system fails in these circumstances.

  • Wishing I was 30 or 40 years younger because I would fight to adopt this child & give her a lifetime of LOVE & CARING. It would be a pleasure to watch her grow, learn & become a worthwhile human. To instill the fact she could become a nurse, doctor, loving mother or whatever would be a joy.

I pray for the poor child and may these two BURN IN THE FIERY PITS OF HELL AND ANY OTHER PERSON THAT KNEW AND DIDN’T REPORT!!!! EVIL EVIL EVIL.

  • Mom & boyfriend BOTH need to learn how to properly raise a child. Since they can’t learn she is a living, breathing HUMAN, THEY SHOULD BE PUT IN JAIL & WATER & FOOD WITHHELD WHILE INMATES BEAT, TORTURE, CHOKE & BODY SLAM THEM. If this beautiful baby survives DO NOT RETURN HER TO ANYONE FROM THESE TWO FAMILIES. THIS BABY DESERVES A TOTALLY DIFFERENT FAMILY DYNAMIC NOT ASSOCIATED WITH MOM & BOYFRIEND OR THEIR FAMILIES.
    My heart & prayers go out to God & this child. God help her survive & heal & thrive. Then help place her in a loving, caring home FOREVER, GOD.

    Monday, 6 February 2017, 3:36 pm

  • This is SO sick! Babies don’t ask to be brought into this crazy world so if you can’t afford diapers or the patience to properly train your child then DO NOT have one!!!!
