3 teens accused of beating, critically hurting boy

Dec 3, 2010 8:25:00 AM - thestate.com
An 18-month-old boy is in critical condition after Charleston authorities say he was hanged by his ankles in a closet and repeatedly beaten by three teenagers.

Multiple media outlets reported that 16-, 15-, and 14-year-old boys are accused of abusing Louis Wright of Charleston. The child's mother, Shakera Wright, is accused of allowing the beating to occur.

Police were called to a hospital Tuesday when she brought Louis in with face swelling, fractured ribs, bruises, and lacerations to his spleen, liver and pancreas.

Wright told a social worker the teens "play-wrestled" with him Monday. She said they hit her son until she told them to stop.

Arrest warrants say the oldest teen admitted the abuse, calling it wrestling.
