Boy, 13, Charged in ‘Wrestling’ Death of Girl, 5
JEFFERSON PARISH, New Orleans (KTLA) — A 13-year-old boy was charged with second murder Wednesday after allegedly using TV wrestling moves on his 5-year-old half-sister, who died from the beating.
The boy was arrested Tuesday after a coroner’s investigation found the girl died of multiple injuries, including broken ribs, lacerations of the liver and internal bleeding, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s spokesman Col. John Fortunato said.
Deputies received a 911 call from the home on Sunday where they found Viloude Louis unresponsive.
She was pronounced dead a short time later.
“The 13-year-old reported he started to wrestle with the victim and practiced ‘WWE’ style wrestling moves on the girl,” Fortunato said.
Investigators said the teen told them he repeatedly slammed the girl on a bed, punched her in the stomach, jumped on her and struck her with his elbow several times.
The boy had been left home to babysit the girl by his stepmother while she went to the store.
He was being held in a juvenile facility.
