Coroner: Murdered Toddler Died From Asphyxiation

There's new information in the murder of a two-year-old Madison County girl.

The Madison County coroner says Callie Robinson died of asphyxiation. The toxicology results are still not in.

The child's mother, 23-year-old Verona Brinegar, as well as 26-year-old Ronald Crabtree are charged with murder.

Court documents show the little girl was badly bruised and had signs of possible sexual abuse when she was found unresponsive in their home.

Callie's 6-year-old brother, Wade, is now in the custody of relatives.

    People, we need to watch our judges and do all we can do prevent this type of thing from happening to our children! If parents don't want these children (and many only have them to get welfare on) then the government needs to take them away from these individuals and give them to someone who will care and love them. How many more of our precious little ones are going to have to die, before our lawmakers and judges do something about it? This is about the fifth child in the last week that has died at the hands of an adult. LAWMAKERS, JUDGES GET OFF YOUR BUTTS AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!

    An outrage is saying it lightly, they should suffer the way the child suffered and have to endure what she endured for the time she suffered from all the pain and punishment she was put thru. . . If in fact she is expecting; the child should be taken from her and placed with family, ther to be raised in a good home. Sometimes we as parents must take stand for our grand children and take them as our own to raise, because our own children can or will not do the job of being a good parent.
