Texas Mother Locked Up For Killing 3-Year-Old Son In A Game Of “Chicken”
According to NY Daily News, a Texas mom allegedly played a game of chicken with her three kids and accidentally ran over & killed her 3-year-old son.
Lexus Stagg was charged with criminally negligent homicide after her “3-year-old child ran behind her vehicle as she backed out of her parking spot,” on June 11th.
Surveillance video from a nearby apartment complex allegedly shows Stagg getting into her SUV before driving in reverse. As her three kids began running after her, she slowly drove the SUV forward. While two kids evaded the vehicle, the 3-year-old got stuck beneath a tire.
A neighbor of Stagg, expressed his grief over the death of the little boy, but made it clear that Stagg was not a great mother.
The neighbor recalls:
“I felt bad because those parents, they were never there, they were kind of negligent..The kids were always out here without supervision.”
Two of Stagg’s older children have been placed with relatives while Stagg was arrested and faces a prison term of up to 10 years, if found guilty.
