Devin, 12, was beaten to death by his mother over a course of hours because he hid her pills from her.

Tasha Parsons has been charged with murdering her 12-year-old son after she admitted to beating him to death for hiding her pain medication.

Tasha allegedly beat her son with her fists, hands, a leather belt and metal kitchen tray for several hours when he refused to reveal where he had hidden her Percocet pills.

When the boy lapsed into unconsciousness the mother of three left him for several hours before calling an ambulance.

Devin was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police revealed Tasha”s boyfriend, 30-year-old Waldo Jones, was present during the alleged beating but did nothing to help the youngster.

When arrested at the family home in Louisville, Kentucky, he was found covered in the boy’s blood but claimed this was from cleaning up his wounds.

Family members said Devin hid the prescription pills because they changed his mother’s moods.

Tasha’s two other children were taken into care following the alleged murder.

She has been charged with murder while Waldo Jones faces a felony charge of neglect of a dependent causing death.

Tasha could face up to 45 years in prison for the murder of her son.

  1. My prayers and thought goes out to this family. There is nothing in this world that will make me beat my child to the point where to leave her lifeless. I have lost a child due to murder her name is Brianna Caddell who is listed on this site also. I miss her so much and to be a mother of child who life was stolen it hurts knowing that I will never see her agin until I get in heaven with her. I just don’t understand how any parent could just kill there own flesh and blood over something so senseless. This bring tears to my eyes and heaviness to my heart!

    • Thank you, Pam. I’m so sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and for beautiful Brianna. Thank you for your kind words. We will see our lost children again some day.

  2. Sweetheart, You have no idea how much you are loved and missed. I’m so sorry that this happened to you. You deserved better – you were a wonderful boy.
    I hope we can meet in heaven some day.

  3. This story has breaking my heart, a child should never experience something like this, even worse coming from the person who should protected him the most in this world….. his own mother!!!
