Give that B_I_T_C_H the electric chair. She dosen't deserve to live another minute. Just like Nickle said, "an eye for an eye" sounds good to me.

What a sick woman. She must have been jealous of this little boy. I hope she dies the same death she bestowed on him.

Though a trial date has not yet been set, Valencia Jackson said she plans to be at the proceedings. "I want her to get the death penalty and for me to see her suffer like I think my baby suffered."

Way to go, Jackson. Try telling that to Roundtree's son.

AMEN to that!!!!! As long as people think they can get away with crime here they will commit it over and over again.

If it were me I would make a special case of this one, put pictures permanently affixed to her cell door of the little boy's body all beaten up and bloody for all the other inmates to see on a daily basis. Then after a week start letting her out into general population, no more of this 30 yrs on death row, let nature take its course.

You people need to stop using the "eye for an eye" phrase. The Bible also says in Matthew 5:38, 39:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Old testament - stone them.
New testament - turn the other cheek.

If you pretend to be a Christian, you have to turn the other cheek. Otherwise, she should get what she gave to that poor little boy.

how could any woman beat a child like that and then say she didn't know. Death is too good for her see needs to be beaten with one of those canes like they do in China. This needs to be done every day for a hour straight for the rest of her life. Just tortured like that child was.

Why bother to voice your opinion if you don't have anything worthwhile to contribute to the discussion.
My prayers go out to Kelvins remaining family. May you find peace and solice in God.

It's sad to say but why should Valencia worry about her son. She(the killer) didn't worry about her own son or the consequences of beating a child a child to death. Tia's son will already grow up and find out that she murdered a child. A child that he probably shared a sibling like relationship for a short time. Who knows, Tia may have beaten her son like that as well. Thank God that Telvin and her little boy were not killed too. This woman deserves to get what she gave. Bottom line.

kelvin was with his father, so why should valencia have to worry about her child's safety. he is a very good father and she is a good mother. if you don't know what you're talking about you don't need to make any comments. apparently you don't read the newspapers because tia judged her own self when she chosed to abused kelvin instead of discipline him like a child, instead she beat him like he was a mad dog.she will be judged by many people and most important" God "

do you think any child should be beat to death for having a accident in their pants? what difference does it make if that child was with the mother or the father? the autopsy proved that the death was caused from abuse. my grandson had a ruptured heart, bruised spleen, skull fracture,bruised scalp and bruises left from the belt, she, "tia" used to beat my grandson with. so if you don't know what you're talking about, don't make any comments.
