KC Star - Police have arrested Marcus R. Benson, the man police say is the boyfriend of the woman accused of barricading her 10-year-old malnourished daughter in an apartment closet. Benson was arrested about 8 p.m. Thursday. He is being held at Kansas City police headquarters and will make an appearance in court at 11 a.m. today. Jackson County prosecutors have charged Benson with two charges of felony child endangerment. Benson told police he didn’t know about the abuse. Police found the girl on June 22 in an apartment in the 1300 block of Highland Avenue after someone called the Missouri child abuse hotline. The girl weighed just 32 pounds. Her mother, Jacole Prince, 29, has been charged with assault, child abuse and child endangerment.
Wahh, I’m hungry, alone and locked in a closet! I’m malnourished and nobody loves me! God, what a little ungrateful bitc– wait, 32 pounds? THIS BITCH WEIGHED 32 POUNDS?! Jesus christ. Guess she wasn’t too happy with the original weigh-in at the hospital huh? She may have actually lost weight since being born a decade ago. I mean are we even sure this was a 10 year old child? It wasn’t like a baby fawn or a North Korean or something? Sheesh. I gotta tell ya though, we need more details about this before we can just strap 2 felony counts on Marcus Benson here. What if he started dating this crazy broad after she locked her daughter in the closet? Positively no way he could have heard her in there. 32 lbs doesn’t give you a lot of torque when it comes to making a motherfuckin’ ruckus. Can’t help what you can’t hear, that’s science.
