Mom jailed, boyfriend leaves kids alone over Christmas
Police in Atlanta are looking for a scum bag who they say told an Atlanta-area woman that he would look after her kids for the three nights she had to spend in jail. Instead of looking after them, he left the two young girls alone in an apartment for three days. The girls were alone on Christmas Day.
Nefiteria Burrell, 27, was jailed on December 23 for an outstanding theft warrant and she asked one of the arresting officers to watch the kids until her boyfriend arrived. The boyfriend, John Frank Evans, age 28, did arrive and the police then left the kids with him. Ms Burrell was released from jail the day after Christmas and came home to discover her daughters alone at her apartment, the youngest, 3, was dirty and unfed and the eldest, 6, had fallen into a diabetic coma. The 6-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition but is now stable and improving.
The choices that this Mother made seem to be atrocious. What can be done about this? Should she have care, custody and control of these kids? I just don't know why a grown man would leave two small kids like that especially if he knew that the older child was diabetic!
