This Toddler’s Intestines Burst & His Young Mom Got Charged With Manslaughter Because She Refused To Get Him Help

Victoria continued to just stand by and watch as Jayce’s condition worsen and he just got sicker and sicker with every passing day.

He was unable to walk or even eat.

He couldn’t play. He was violently and uncontrollably vomiting.

Still, Victoria refused to seek medical attention.

“Over a period of two to three days, [Toth] continued to watch Jayce suffer and by doing so, tortured him, in that he was unable to walk or eat and excessively vomited,” The Sentinel reports a police report said about this dire situation.

“Yet again, [Toth] still failed to seek medical attention explaining she did not want medical personnel to judge her and because [Pursglove] told her not to.”

So Victoria didn’t take her son to a doctor, or an emergency room, because she didn’t want to be judged.

Also, her boyfriend told her not to take him.

That’s why she failed to help her child.

On July 18 at 6:30 a.m. Victoria noticed that Jayce was unresponsive.

She called 911 and explained to them that her “son has been dehydrating, he’s throwing up” and she needed an ambulance.

Authorities came to the Washington Shores house, only to discover Jayce in a horrible state, with Jonathan attempting to give him CPR.

And this all could have been avoided and this poor little boy would have been ok if his Mom had only done a few things for him that she completely failed to do.

Authorities entered Victoria’s home and found Jayce covered with a towel and lying on his back flat on the floor.

He was clearly malnourished, covered in bruises, and surrounded by vomit. Upon entering his bedroom authorities discovered more vomit and fist-sized holes in the wall.

This only indicated to them that there was a fight at the house recently.
