APOPKA, Fla. -- A Central Florida man is accused of pouring hot cooking oil on a 17-month-old and using a hair dryer to burn his skin off because the toddler apparently would not stop crying and whining.
Police said Darlanne Toussaint was charged with felony attempted murder on suspicion he abused his girlfriend's son in an Apopka apartment building Thursday.
The mother of the child, Marlita S. Stokes, 23, was arrested on Friday and faces charges of child neglect and providing false information to police.

Get a rope.
Some of the worst things in the world are done by Mommy’s boyfriend.
Yeah, torturing will make him stop. This guy should have hot cooking oil poured on him.
Put the monster down.
Oh My God! There are no words.
Pouring boiling oil on a toddler to STOP IT FROM CRYING?!
Gotta agree with that sentiment.
There is a special corner of Hell waiting for this piece of garbage!
All the nut jobs in the U.S. are not in Florida, but we definately have more then our share.
I thought Kwanzaa ended January 1st?
When my bride and I went to birthing classes at the hospital about 8 years ago there were maybe 10 couples including one guy like this fellow, a boyfriend! He made some really dumb comments all during the classes and at the last the instructor asked if anyone had any comment, the guy said yea, I do, from now on I will always use a condom! We all agreed that he should.
Prayers for the little one, the guy I will leave up to the Lord to deal with.
Note to self: Pouring hot cooking oil on a baby will not stop it from crying.
Note to the perp, that doesn’t help or work. It is like saying “the torture will continue until the crying stops”.
“A Central Florida man is accused of pouring hot cooking oil on a 17-month-old and using a hair dryer to burn his skin off ...”
What EVIL person would think THIS would make a child
This person needs the same treatment to UNDERSTAND why that won’t work.
Put the animal dow so he and society don’t have to suffer.
Prison will be fun for this POS.
Ghastly, savage and barbaric. I am always amazed that these kinds of unfeeling louts can come up with these things. The child was crying/whining at 17 months old? What did this scumbag expect? Scintillating conversation over a quiet dinner? And, then, to come up with the notion that hot oil and a hair dryer would help the situation?
Seems to me that the same should be done to the perp... Any volunteers to help?
Just don’t tie it in a noose, that would be rasist.
Wow, the evil men can do!
I have faith that this monster will suffer much the same fate for eternity.
Pleased to be the first to call for the application of
What a complete ba$tard!
Ropes too good for this one... rusty knife and belly wound with no chance of medical treatment are what this jackass deserves.
I would bet this guy is a Haitian immigrant, of course the station that reported it didn’t say.
It’s all Bush’s fault. He’s teaching Americans that it’s okay to torture.
Do I get my own MSNBC show now?
Yeah, you’re both right. That was my first inclination, but I’m sure there are other uses for the rope to be applied.
Based on the name and location, that's a fair bet.
True. Statistically, the chances of abuse go way up if a stepfather or boyfriend is in the house.
Maybe it’s just the last shred of optimism left in me talking, but I have to believe this guy was whacked out on crack or something, because I don’t think even hardened criminals would be this cruel. If he wasn’t, he needs to be put down immediately. Then again, if he was, he needs to be put down immediately.
JMO but I think it goes deeper than the child annoying them. I believe it is a hatred of their real father that they are being punished for. Poor baby. I pray he finds a loving home. He will never forget this though, even if he “forgets” Moms I know there are some wonderful stepdads out there but be real careful about who you bring into your home.
This is where “an eye for an eye” would be appropriate
Few would argue with that sentiment.
Easy, but wrong -- we're all to blame, in some sense. This is the confluence of at least three cultural failures.
First, we have come to accept illegitimacy as "normal," to the point where we think it's unfortunate and sub-optimal, but not really wrong. So there's that part.
Second, we've come to accept "living together" as "normal," and in most cases it's not even frowned upon -- it's just a lifestyle choice, among many others.
Third is, of course, sex. Sex is seen as something to be done for its own sake, because it's "fulfilling." As a rule, we don't frown on sex outside of marriage -- the old "consenting adults" thing is supposed to have superceded such stodgy thinking.
And so now we see the confluence of them here, and in too many similar cases. Mother of illegitimate kids once again mistakes sex for love, and shacks up with the man who ends up hurting or killing her kid.
It used to be that marriage was a requirement for cohabitation, sex, and kids -- and that's no longer the case. The culprits are not just liberal Democrats: we've all allowed those conditions to fester and flourish.
Countless children in this country suffer every day because souless, narcassistic ignoramases get pregnant, with no intent of actually loving or nuturing the child. The child fulfills a selfish need for the mother and grandmother and “uunts”. Their children are their posessions, to be styled and flaunted, to relfect the mother, who gains status among other like-minded morons. Father’s collect baby pictures of each child they sire to flaunt to anyone they think will be impressed. It’s very sick, depraved behavior that exists because society doesn’t want to appear judgemental. So let the children suffer and continue the cycle every 14 yrs.
Horrible story. Whenever I heard stories about adults harming children, I take comfort in this scripture (Matthew 18:6):
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Dr. Spock must've missed that one.
It's a shame that boiling in oil has gone out of style.
A female pig is a better parent than this mother.
Prayers for this poor child and may the abusers get what they deserve here and in the hereafter.
This is par for the course with Mommys’ boyfriends. We have a case in our locality where Mommy’s boyfriend was raping her teenage daughter. Mommy didn’t even know about it and when she did find out, she wouldn’t press charges. The state had to do it to protect the child.
one less democrat voter.
Rope? Boil him in oil.
Yeah, that treatment will stop a child from crying.
Don’t blame this on “people” This guy is not one of us people.
I’m sure pouring hot oil to make a toddler stop crying is going to work. NOT.
We should give him-and mom- a taste of his own medicine.
Get him his ACLU lier, then slowly boil him in oil.
