Eastern Iowa Woman Threatened to Kill Child on Facebook Live
Sometimes there are alleged crimes that simply make you sick to your stomach. This is one of those times.
Davenport police have charged a 29-year-old woman with threatening to kill her 2-year-old disabled child during a Facebook Live video that they allege also included the woman pouring alcohol on the child.
KWQC reports that Davenport police were called to the 3500 block of West 43rd St. around 11 a.m. Thursday, August 9 after the report came in. Police arrested Darshanda Trenette McNeal (pictured below) for Child Endangerment following the incident. Child Endangerment is a misdemeanor.
According to authorities, McNeal poured rubbing alcohol on the child in the video and also threatened to kill the 2-year-old. After first telling police she didn't know why she did it, she changed her story. She then told law enforcement it was "for fun." McNeal is being held at the Scott County Jail on $2,000 bond.
Thankfully, the child was seen at a local hospital and didn't receive any physical injuries from the incident.
