Houston Father Charged After 6-Year-Old Allegedly Kills 1-Year-Old Sibling

News

A father has turned himself in to Baytown police after his 6-year-old daughter allegedly killed her baby brother while the two were left alone in a vehicle.

On May 20, Adrian Dreshaun Middleton went shopping for clothes, and left the young girl in the car with his 1-year-old son, according to court documents.

Middleton told authorities he left the car and air conditioner running, turned on a movie and gave the children snacks before going inside the Family Thrift Store in the 12000 block of the East Freeway.

The girl told police that she was playing with her little brother while her dad was shopping for clothes. She said the boy started crying when she stopped playing with him, so she got angry and wrapped the seat belt around him.

She told officers she thought he had fallen asleep.

When Middleton returned to the car, he put his bags in the back of the car and saw his daughter crying. The girl reportedly told him she had to use the restroom and that she had done something bad.

Middleton saw the seat belt wrapped around the 1-year-old’s neck and found he was not responding. He called 911 and attempted CPR until the ambulance arrived. The boy was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
