Indiana police arrested a mother this week and accused her of recording gruesome videos of her abusing her own toddler son, as reported by WISHTV.
More than a month after the alleged incident, Mekielle Pullins, 22, was arrested Thursday and charged with attempted murder. Pullins allegedly taped herself covering her 2-year-old son’s nose and mouth while he screamed and tried to get away. The Indy Star reports that she sent the 10-second video to the toddler’s father.
“At the same time the child struggled to remove her hand, he lifted his dangling legs up and squirmed around in an attempt to get free from the woman’s grasp,” court documents detail.
Pullins allegedly sent a second video and at least 30 related texts to the unidentified father, where she threatened her children’s lives. The man is also the father of Pullins’ 3-year-old son.
“Get your baby before I kill him,” one read. “I’m stabbing [the child] 2night. I hate him. I wish u never gave me him. I don’t love him or you. U used me for a baby and money then left me on side road and left kids n shelter with not one call in weeks.”
Another read, “I’ll abuse him until u either pick him up or till he die.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Pullins allegedly abducted her three children, ages 2, 3, and 7, on July 18, prompting an AMBER Alert. Though the children were found safe an hour later, Pullins has been on the run ever since. Marion County prosecutors filed attempted murder charges against her shortly thereafter.
Two months before the alleged abduction, WISHTV reported that Pullins hit the children’s father in the face and almost ran one of her kids over with her car. Court documents reveal that Pullins also had an outstanding warrant for domestic battery, criminal recklessness, resisting law enforcement, and disorderly conduct, according to WIBC.
The mother of three was booked into the Marion County Jail. An initial court appearance hasn’t been scheduled.
