Amanda Marie Hancock a 21 year old Oregon woman and her 26 year old husband Stephen Michael Williams have been charged with the murder by abuse of their seven week old son, Data Toria Hancock after an autopsy determined the baby son died of starvation.
Died of starvation that is because the child’s mother had resorted to using breast milk designated for the child to be instead used in adult entertainment scenes of her lactating others whilst voyeurs paid to watch online.
That said the Oregon couple have insisted that they did in fact feed the baby milk, this despite never having taken him to see a doctor with notable signs that the child had lost inordinate amount of weight.
Told a police affidavit: ‘Stephen and Amanda both admitted there was no prenatal care, and they didn’t go to any doctor’s appointments,’
According to the child’s father, Williams never called a doctor because he believed it to be the mother’s responsibility.
An ambulance was originally called on January 22 to treat an infant in distress, though efforts to revive the child were unsuccessful.
According to the affidavit, the couple showed indifference to the infant dying.
‘The charging document says the couple showed extreme indifference to human life in causing Data Toria Hancock’s death by failing to provide him adequate food and medical care.’
Williams and Hancock also have a 2-year-old son together. The child has been placed in child protective services for the time being.
The couple openly admitted that they didn’t go to any doctor appointments, and didn’t participate in any sort of prenatal care before their baby was born.
After being arrested at their Glendale home, the couple was charged with murder by abuse.
The couple’s 2-year-old son was taken into protective custody.
Deputy District Attorney Shannon Sullivan said attorneys would be appointed by the court for Williams and Hancock. Otherwise, Sullivan said she had no comment.
A grand jury will hear the charges next week.
