Boy, 3, beaten to death for drinking from milk jug: Police

(INSIDE EDITION) - A little boy was beaten to death last week after drinking from a jug of milk, according to police in central Florida.

Xavier Mokarzel-Satchel died Friday evening after the Orange County Sheriff's Office said he was rushed to a hospital having suffered blunt force trauma.

An arrest report said that on the night of the child's murder, his mother, Brandi Mokarzel, said she had woken up to the sound of her girlfriend's mom, Callene Barton, yelling at the 3-year-old for drinking from a milk jug and eating yogurt.

Mokarzel told deputies she witnessed her girlfriend, Lakesha Lewis, beat the toddler with a plastic wand used to turn window blinds, according to an arrest report.

Mokarzel told cops Barton then grabbed her son and threw him down a hallway.

Lewis and Barton were arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and first-degree murder, according to WKMG.

Mokarzel was also arrested and charged with neglect after allegedly failing to report previous abuse in the home, according to police.

Deputies said Lewis' 4-year-old son was placed in protective custody.

A judge denied bail to them both over the weekend. Mokarzel was due in court Monday.
