Pop Tart Baby Killer Charged in OH

Aug 14, 2015

A suspect who said a toddler in his care choked while eating a Pop Tart this weekend in Ohio has been charged with the boy’s murder. 

Justin Payne, 26, is accused of battering the child on Saturday morning, then falsely reporting to a 911 dispatcher that his victim began experiencing breathing *difficulties* after briefly leaving him unsupervised while eating.

A county coroner discovered 2-year-old Jacob Barker in fact died on Sunday from repeated “blunt force trauma” to his neck, head and body.

Years prior to this youngster’s killing, Justin Payne had been jailed in the brutal beating of yet another toddler who allegedly survived his injuries and is now almost 4-years-old.

Payne was originally arrested Saturday on suspicion of felony assault, but charged this week for a handful of criminal counts in the death of Baby Jacob, including murder, manslaughter and endangerment.

A judge has set bond for the homicidal child abuser at $1-million.
