Woman Tries To Kill Ex’s Son With Dumbbell
Via CBS Balitmore reports:
Prince George’s County police say a woman broke into her ex-boyfriend’s home and tried to bludgeon his sleeping 8-year-old son to death.
Police announced Tuesday that Helen Marie Newsome, 26, broke into the home in Landover over the weekend. After hiding for more than 12 hours until the boy’s father went to work Saturday morning, police say Newsome covered the boy’s head with a pillow and beat him with a dumbbell weight. But the boy fought back and managed to escape to a neighbor’s home.
Newsome jumped out a window, but police say she was arrested nearby.
The boy’s father recently broke up with Newsome. She is charged with first-degree attempted murder.
