Whats wrong with this picture? Of course the mother should face murder charges!! She was there,she seen how many times this man abused her son and she did NOTHING to protect him.The very first time that lousy sob laid a hand on the child that mother should have called the police and had him arrested.She sat back and watched this abuse happen time and time again.She turned around a married the man that was terrorizing this child and she says she was scared he would hurt her?Come on,What the heck,didnt she think nor care that her child was scared.I have a hard time believing that Stephanie Sloop is "is very emotional and having a difficult time" as far as her son is concerned, Her difficult time is probably thinking about how she will not be able to spend the rest of her life with her husband,The very guy she shouldnt have stood by at all.What type of a mother could allow any of this to happen? They are both monsters!!!

It should be an eye for a eye. There was no reason to hurt the child. He is innocent. I say the parents should be put to death. When in jail why should we pay for their well being. They dont deserve any pity.

4 years old???? what a big man you were to beat and kill a little boy and the mother to stand by and do nothing is equally guilty. This baby boy soared straight to Heaven and into the arms of God. Bless his soul. This world is getting more and more evil by the minute. If you see or know of someone hurting a child or anyone else DO SOMETHING TO GET THE VICTIM HELP !!!!

Before they are executed, they should be made to wear a pendant of the mutilated child as he is now around their necks.

Shoot both of these a-holes and save the taxpayer money. Nothing and I mean nothing is worse than killing a child especially that brutally.

I would not want to be either of them when the day of Final Judgement falls upon animals like these two P.O.S.

You can't be serious "tea for me"!! "Your God given right to do with your off spring." I think someone needs to find out where you are and arrest you right now.

Only a Marxist big government fool such as yourself would disagree with my comment. Tea Party rules!
You are obviously insane. No one has the right to torture and murder a little boy. Do you actually think any one in the Tea Party would agree with a psychopath? I agree with the first response, you should be locked up before you harm a child.

Is agreeing with a psychopath the same as being one? I think so.

They're innocent. Until proven guilty. And then they'll fry.

My heart aches for this child. His pain is gone, but I hope that POS and his POS mother suffer more than he did for much longer than 10 days.

Well of course she should be charged with murder! As I said in a previous post, it took four days for this child to die. You can't tell me that at some time during those four days she didn't have an opportunity to sneak out of the house or to a phone and get help.

Death penalty within 30 days, just like China.

She should be charged with murder. She allowed this man to beat her son and then went out to marry him. She also tried to protect him by saying her son wandered away after he or they killed him. What kind of animal could beat a dead child with a hammer and break his teeth to cover himself? Why couldn't she just leave him with the father that loved him? Good luck in prison you two, you deserve what is coming to you.

Sneak out? She went to the COURT HOUSE and married him. Do you think that maybe there were some police there?

I read this article and am still shocked. The mother may not have done anything to prevent but she is most certainly equally guilty and should be punished to the fullest extend of the law as much as her husband of 10 days. I feel for the father who sent his son to visit with his mother for the summer and this is what happens.

A little boy can't count on his mom to protect him? The mother is as guilty as the jerk who killed Ethan! She should be put in a cage for the remainder of her life.
