Michigan woman accused of abusing her twins and killing one with the help of her boyfriend
Charges against “Lisa Marie Reed”
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Friday that Lisa Marie Reed had been charged with second-degree murder in the death of her 13-month-old son Zyaire Reed. His friend, James E. Gibson Jr., has been charged with first-degree murder, according to the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and the News-Herald.
The couple, both 34, are also charged with first-degree child abuse.
On July 28, the police were called to an apartment in Ecorse because no child was responsible for the complaint. Upon arrival, officers and paramedics noted that Reed’s son, Zyaire, had not responded. He was immediately pronounced dead. Later, authorities located the dead boy’s twin brother, Zion, who was also seriously injured and was rushed to Children’s Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
Timothy Sassak Said:
“This is the worst I’ve ever seen,” Ecorse Police Inspector Timothy Sassak told FOX 2 Detroit at the scene. The WDIV said Gibson had a criminal record, including a conviction for child abuse.
Authorities say Gibson was not the father of the children and lived with them and their mother.
“The evidence in this case shows that Zyaire Reed was abused for almost half of his very young life,” Worthy said in a news release. “He was 13 months old when he died. The alleged facts in this case have led experienced prosecutors to shake their heads and swear to seek justice for him.
According to Worthy, Zion Reed survived and continues to treat his injuries.
“We’re going to be horrible, really horrible,” a loved one told the News Herald in July. “It’s a complete shock … you just threw a fabulous birthday party for him.”
The couple are expected to be sentenced Monday. It is not known whether the lawyers have spoken on his behalf.
