Monster mom ‘killed son, 8, by beating him and locking him in freezing garage forcing him to wet himself
A MONSTER mom allegedly killed her eight-year-old son by beating him and locking him in a freezing garage – forcing him to wet himself.
Tasha Tennin, 36, allegedly killed her son at their home in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota on January 31, 2018.
She then allegedly locked him in the garage on a night where temperatures dropped below zero degrees.
Tennin called 911 the next day after finding him unresponsive in the garage.
Cops found him lying on the floor in the living room without a pulse, and paramedics rushed to the house.
The boy was described as being "ice cold", and their attempts to revive him failed.
Tennin reportedly told cops that her son came home from school feeling "sick and lethargic".
But teachers at the school said her son had been energetic and had played on a trampoline that day.
FROZEN LIQUID FOUND
According to the police report filed at the time, the boy urinated in his pajamas, and a puddle of frozen liquid was found in the garage.
When police came back to search the house a week later, the liquid was gone.
An autopsy found lesions and scars on the boy's back, which a doctor said "were indicative of physical abuse".
Tennin was charged originally with two counts of second-degree manslaughter in September 2019 after the boy's siblings told their foster parents that their brother got in trouble after he came home from school on January 31, 2018.
The children said Tennin locked the boy in the garage for the night.
Last week she was charged with first degree murder while committing child abuse, and unintentional second-degree murder.
She was arrested on Friday, and is due to appear in court on Monday. Prosecutors have reportedly asked for her bail to be set at $2 million, according to WCCO.
Reports said it was not clear why there was a gap between the charges in September last year and the more recent grand jury indictment.
