Mom Murdered Her 6-Year-Old Son, Then Called 911 and Blamed It on Someone Else: Police

Authorities in Brooklyn, Ohio, have charged a mother with first-degree murder in the death of her very own six-year-old son.  Even the Brooklyn Police Department says Daneicha Bringht, 30, of Parma, was staying in a Fairfield Inn and Suites resort if they received a complaint that gunshots had been fired Saturday, April 24, at 7:03 in the morning. Bright’s son, Kaamir Bringht, was captured and finally died; Daneicha was captured and wounded.
It turned out that the phone for help came in the suspect herself.
“[A] female reported someone took her son in her area and left approximately 30 minutes before her phone,” the police department stated in a Facebook post. The call came”[f]rom the resort’s front desk,” perhaps not the area where the suspect was staying.
“Officers arrived to locate a child with gunshot wounds in the room,” the authorities lasted. The child and the feminine were hauled to Metro Health E.R.. The six year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 30 year-old female complainant, the victim’s mom… was treated and discharged from the ER.”
Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO-TV obtained the 911 telephone number. It saysin part:
DISPATCHER:  “Police and Fire Dispatch.”
DANEICHA BRINGHT:”YesI want the Police. Someone shot my son”
“Okay. Is he living?”
“I don’t know if he is alive — my hands is shot.”
“Just how old is your kid?”
“He is only six.”
“Okay. Who took him?”
“I don’t understand. I tried to take the gun from himand he took me in my hands.”
“You don’t understand anything? They broke into your room?”
“I am not sure. I was with a friend , but he was with his friends. We went swimmingand I thought they had left.”
Authorities did not purchase the story.
WOIO noted that 6-year-old Kaamir had been shot in the head and in the gut.  While reading the charges , a Parma Municipal Court judge explained the boy’s mother”seemingly later confessed” to the authorities that she was the shooter.
No precise subsection of the charge is currently on the docket.
Generally , however, subsection (A) of the pertinent statute makes it a crime to”purposefully” kill an individual”with prior calculation and design”  Subsection (C) of the identical statute makes it a crime to”purposefully” kill somebody under thirteen years of age.  That subsection makes it easier for prosecutors to convict defendants charged with killing kids because premeditation does not need to be proven.
The suspect was also shown to be indigent for the purposes of appointed counsel.
The case was supposed to be introduced to a grand jury for indictment.  No charging records are on record in an online court docket.
Family members told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the suspect had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and the family was in the process of getting legal custody of Kaamir when he died.  Police records reviewed by the paper and clarified by family signify an increasing number of police contacts with the suspect over issues like an outstanding bill at a restaurant and intoxication.
Donald Bringht, the defendant’s father and also the victim’s grandfather, stated Kaamir was an energetic little boy who looked forward to understanding how to ride a bicycle like larger children.  He said he took Kaamir to play with a neighborhood playground which Kaamir liked to watch his favorite cartoons.
Donald Bringht also stated the family reported multiple episodes of physical abuse from Kaamir from the defendant to the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services.  He told the paper the Department”did not do anything” to help.  The department told the newspaper there were not any reports of physical abuse — but confessed Tuesday (after fully disregarding questions on Monday) there were open instances about the child.
Bringht’s case may be a poor legal candidate for an insanity defense.
Ohio’s insanity defense follows the so called M’Naghten Rule, and in Bringht’s case, the 911 call indicates she tried to misdirect the authorities to a different unknown assailant. A jury might realize that the effort to mislead the authorities is evidence Bringht tried to evade punishment because she understood”the wrongfulness of” her alleged acts.
