I HEARD OF THIS STORY FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE CHANNEL 11 NEWS ON FRIDAY. I AM IN SHOCK AT THIS. I WOULD NEVER LEAVE MY CHILDREN WITH A TEENAGER, LET ALONE A TEENAGE BOY. I AM SORRY FOR THE LOSS. IF THE TEETH MARKS MATCH HINTON'S TEETH AND IF HE DID NOT USE A CONDOM, THUS THE EVIDENCE IS 100% SURE HINTON DID IT,I HOPE HIS COUSIN BRYANT SHUTS HIS STUPID, IGNORANT MOUTH. IF CONVICTED OF THIS SICK SADISTIC CRIME, I HOPE DEATH IS THE PENALTY. I HOPE THAT JANIYA'S BROTHER IF HE IS OLD ENOUGH TO TALK, THAT POLICE GOT HIS STORY, BEFORE THIS TWISTED FAMILY ALTERS HIS VIEWS. IF HE IS TOO YOUNG, I PRAY THEY CHECKED HIS BODY OUT REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE AGE.

I totally agree. How could the family stand by such an animal. That little girl didnt deserve that and i think the parents should be brought up on charges as well. Like you said, you dont leave a child with a teenager!

The whole story is sketchy re: circumstances of so called babysitting. Ronny boy did it. May the punishment fit the crime. I worked in the Medical Examiners office and nothing prepares you for this kind of case rolling in. The autopsy should solve any mystery. Where were her parents? They should be charged at least w/neglect. This is sick and inhumane. I am just ill about this.

first of all if he can apologize for what he did then he knew
what he did was wrong from the beginning and he should be treated just like the harden criminal he is and if his family stands beside him then they should be charged to,we are letting these kids get away with to much and they know this and uses there age to get away with to much if it was an adult what would happen to them?my point exactly,treat him as an adult.

What has come over these children? They are killing to become part of gangs, killing for little or no money, disrespecting the elderly big time, and its so much more going on that I know there is not enough to put here. I totally agree with those who says that this 15 yr old monster should be punish to the full extent of the law. I'm so tired of hearing about how they had a troubled child life, how drugs was an influence, that they didn't know what they were doing, etc...etc.....oh, my favorite is they were molested by an father, mother, brother, uncle, the dog, the cat, the gorilla next door. Pleaassseee give me a break. And yes, WHERE WERE THE PARENTS?????!!!! The great grandmother of the little girl said that the boy is not the girls cousin and that she(the greatgrand mother)did not know the boy. So, where did the cousin bit come from. Somebody had to throw that out there.

Last but not least, he is going to meet his creator and he will answer again to his sick crime.

What can you say about a crime like this.Look at world we live in.It's a 15 year old child that killed a 4 year old baby.Did he no better? Who know's.The baby is gone and by killing this child will not bring her back. my heart goes out to the family.Frist let's start from here to see why this child was watching these baby.Was it lack of money that they could not afford a real babysitter?Where they out getting high?We do not no yet.first of all the parents should be held responable they killed there daughter who in there right mine would leave there baby in the hand of a 15 year old child a boy at that.This child needs help let's keep him in pray because he will need it.

This is the first I've heard of this story but no one who has written anything above seems to know anything about what happened except the girl was reportedly killed and a 15 year old arrested. I'm not presuming innocence but I'm also not saying I know what happened.

All the complaints that parents should be arrested because a teenager was the babysitter? Charged with neglect? Why is the family standing behind the boy (and someone above suggesting that they're ashamed becasue parents are taking up for their kids)? Someone above saying the great grandmother of the little girl said she doesn't know where the cousin bit came from and that somebody had to throw that out there. Stella says "The whole story is sketchy re: circumstances of so called babysitting. Ronny boy did it."

I have no idea what the parents were doing and probably no one who has written anything above knows either. But people do go out; people do hire young babysitters, cousins included, and sometimes teenagers babysit because they're asked or told to, not because they're getting paid. And just because you hire a teenager doesn't mean you're neglecting the child. While something bad, terribly bad happened, you would be yelling neglect if the parents didn't have a babysitter, even if nothing happened to the child. As for the great grandmother saying she didn't know about the "cousin bit", for all any of us know, the boy is a relative of the great-grandmother's grandaughter's or grandson's in-laws; heck, I doubt anyone writing above know the family members of their grandchildren's in-laws.

And thank you Stella; you said the story is sketchy but you definitely know the 15 year old did it. I don't know that. I know it's probable. I know the police are investigating. But it's up to the police and a court to make the final determination, no matter how much we think he's guilty.

And thank you Niki for saying the boy's a hardened criminal. You know something I don't know, and probably something none of the rest of us do. The boy's criminal history that made him a hardened criminal.

Some of the above seems like a lynch mob, blaming family for sticking up for the boy. Maybe, just maybe, they believe the boy; believe that he's innocent; believe that he needs their support - even moreso if they think he did it. Just because someone does something horribly bad doesn't mean you don't support them in some way; they're still your flesh and blood. Just as most of the writers above would support their son or daughter if something happened. Even if it was this horrendous or vicious.

I don't know what happened. And I'm not necessarily saying the 15 year old is not guilty of something. It appears he is. But that's for the police to determine and a court to decide. It's not up to me to be a lynch mob, no matter how serious or vicious the crime.

That is a racist remark and very ignorant! If you look at the world, demonic crimes are happening everywhere, regardless of race, sex and nationality.
It is all a part of bible prophecy,... "in the last days critical times hard to deal with 2 Tim 3:1-5, WHy are these things happening...Satan, the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one 1John 5:19,BUT not for long, he has a short period of time left we must endure until Jehovah God steps in and rids the earth of the wicked, psalm 37:9-11, 29, and such terrible things will not be called to mind,Isaiah 65:17. We need hope and instruction from our creator to get through these critical times, because really the world is crazy. "Let your will take place on earth as in heaven..."This is not God's will that mankind is living under these condidions. If if there is a government that can satisfy the needs of ALL people wouldn't you want to know about it? Contact JW. We are everywhere helping people.

Whoever you are, it is evident that you are a racist. And you have the unmitigated gall to tack on the phrase "Celebrate Diversity"! Your message is laced with hatred, and this proves that your thoughts toward an entire race is evil. May I point out to you that there are many little white girls who have been molested and killed by grown white men on a regular basis. Are whites an evil breed? May I also remind you about the two little black girls who were killed by a white man a few years ago in Florida. Are whites an evil breed? And what can be more barbaric than the large numbers of female (and male) African slaves who have been raped by white men despite the fact that they were helpless and in chains? Are whites an evil breed or is this acceptable when they do it? I could cite a long list of examples of rape and molestation charges committed against children by white men. Do I think they are an evil breed? Absolutely not! I am hard pressed to believe that there are too many people who share your distorted view of Blacks. So a man (or woman) thinketh so is s/he). Who knows, maybe you yourself are capable of raping anything that walks or crwals. Your very cryptic message implies just that!

Well, as a single mom i have left my daughter (4 1/2 years old) alone with teenagers but they were strongly supervised by thier parents. It would all depend on the situation i was only 18 so young, and realy did not know what to do and left her alone with teenagers that i could pay cheaply, But not Never! I leave her at the Nursery were I work but im lucky its even avaiable. But why not leave her at a daycare. And enough being mean about it my sorrowful condolences =(
