WFTV was there as 26-year-old Robin Greinke and her boyfriend 33-year-old Steven Neil were hauled off to jail Thursday after being arrested on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and child neglect.
Orange County Sheriff’s investigators say Noah Fake died Tuesday morning. Deputies say the child wasn’t breathing when they arrived at his home. An autopsy revealed blunt force trauma to the boy’s head.
Officials say the mother confessed to the attack after being confronted with autopsy results. She told deputies she was concerned about her son, but ate pizza and watched a movie with her boyfriend after the Monday night beating.
The names of attorneys representing the pair were not immediately available. …
This is a classic case of a mother choosing her boyfriend over her own child. If a man won’t or can’t be with you as you raise your child, then he’s not worth your time. I wouldn’t be surprised if drug use weren’t in this case. How can a mother knowing what she’d done, go and watch television? Did she not know that he was dead? Was the blow to the head not fatal enough in her mind and she thought he was sleeping?
It’s also not farfetched that DCF had more than likely been called out on behalf of this little boy. Another mother on trial for killing her child.
