Authorities in Brooklyn, Ohio, have billed a mother with premature murder in the death of her own six-year-old son. Even the Brooklyn Police Department states Daneicha Bringht, 30, of Parma, was staying in a Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel if they received a complaint that gunshots had been fired on Saturday, April 24, at 7:03 in the afternoon. Bright’s son, Kaamir Bringht, was shot and finally expired; Daneicha was shot and wounded.
It was that the call for assistance came from the suspect herself.
“[A] female reported that someone shot her and her son inside her area and left about 30 minutes before her call,” the police department stated in a Facebook post. The call arrived”[f]rom the resort’s front desk,” not the area where the suspect was staying.
“Officers arrived to find a kid with gunshot wounds inside the room,” the authorities lasted. “Patrol officers performed CPR before the Brooklyn Fire Department arrived. Both the child and the female were transported to Metro Health E.R.. The six year-old male was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 30 year-old female complainant, the victim’s mom… was also treated and discharged from the ER.”
Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO-TV obtained the 911 telephone number. It says, in part:
DISPATCHER: “Police and Fire Dispatch.”
DANEICHA BRINGHT:”Yes, I want the Police. Somebody taken my son.”
“Okay. Is he alive?”
“I don’t know if he’s alive – my hands is taken.”
“How old is your kid?”
“He is just six.”
“Okay. Who shot him?”
“I really don’t understand. I attempted to take the gun away from him, and he shot me in my hands.”
“You do not understand anything? They broke into your area?”
“I am not convinced. I had been with a buddy , but he had been with his buddies. We went swimming, and I believed they’d abandoned.”
Authorities did not buy the story.
WOIO noted that 6-year-old Kaamir had been shot in the head and in the stomach. While reading the fees aloud, a Parma Municipal Court judge stated the boy’s mother”apparently later confessed” to the authorities that she had been the shooter.
No accurate subsection of the charge is presently on the docket.
Broadly speaking, however, subsection (A) of the related statute which makes it a crime to”intentionally” kill an individual”with prior calculation and design.” Subsection (C) of the same statute which makes it a crime to”intentionally” kill someone under thirteen years old. That subsection makes it easier for prosecutors to convict defendants charged with murdering kids because premeditation does not have to be proven.
A cash bond of $500,000 was put by a municipal judge. The suspect was also shown to be indigent for the purposes of appointed counsel.
The situation was supposed to be introduced to a grand jury for indictment. No charging documents are on file in an internet court docket.
Family members told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the suspect had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and that the family had been in the process of getting legal custody of Kaamir if he expired. Police documents examined by the paper and clarified by family signify an increasing number of police contacts with the suspect over issues such as an outstanding bill at a restaurant along with intoxication.
Donald Bringht, the suspect’s father and also the victim’s grandfather, stated Kaamir was an energetic little boy that looked into studying how to ride a bike such as bigger kids. He said he frequently took Kaamir to play with on a local playground which Kaamir wanted to watch his favorite cartoons.
Donald Bringht also stated the family reported several incidents of physical abuse from Kaamir by the defendant to the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services. He told the paper the Department”did not do anything” to provide help. The department told the newspaper there were no reports of physical abuse — but confessed Tuesday (after completely disregarding queries on Monday) that there were open cases about the child.
Bringht’s situation may be a poor legal candidate for the insanity defense.
Under Ohio law,”[a] person is’not guilty by reason of insanity'” if”the individual did not understand, as a result of a serious mental disease or defect, the wrongfulness of the individual’s acts.” Ohio’s insanity defense follows the so-called M’Naghten Rule, also in Bringht’s case, the 911 call indicates she attempted to misdirect the authorities to some other unknown assailant. A jury might realize that the attempt to mislead the authorities is proof Bringht tried to evade punishment because she understood”the wrongfulness of” her alleged actions.
