Vilger Louis, 56, says that when his 5-year-old daughter, Viloude, was born, seven weeks premature, she was tiny. "She weighed 1.75 pounds," he said Tuesday as he cupped his hands together, recalling how he held her moments after her birth. She spent several tense days at Miami Children's Hospital before she was able to join her family at home.
"Now, it's this," Louis said somberly as he sat a few feet from Viloude's mother, Alourdes Desvallons, 39, who lay on their living room couch so consumed with grief that she barely moved. Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office homicide investigators say Viloude died at the hands of her 13-year-old brother, Devalon Armstrong.
Armstrong fatally injured his little sister while practicing wrestling moves on her in the Terrytown apartment the family shared, according to Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office. The 13-year-old was arrested Monday and booked with second-degree murder after an autopsy revealed that Viloude died of severe blunt trauma, which included broken ribs, a lacerated liver and internal bleeding
"It's really hard," Alourdes Desvallons whispered when asked about her son's arrest and his alleged role in Viloude's death.
Girl found unconscious on bathroom floor
Paramedics found the little girl lying unconscious on the bathroom floor of the family's apartment, in the 700 block of Carrollwood Village Drive in Terrytown, on Sunday about 1:30 p.m. They took Viloude to Ochsner Medical Center's West Bank campus in unincorporated Gretna, and she was pronounced dead a short time later

Cute little girl. What a waste of a life
He should not have tried that flying body slam from the top rope.
He had a baby at age 51?
That isn’t rassling that’s beating-up.
How old was Abraham?
May Our Lord bless and keep this child close in His arms.
A tragedy; a stupid tragedy.
Viloude is with the Lord now. Full of joy and peace.
A 13 year old boy “wrestling” a 5 year old girl who was a preemie.
whole brother or half brother?
Didn’t Tony Randall have children well into his 70’s?
Why do I read things like this in the evening?
It doesn’t seem like that many years ago another young teen was sent to prison for a similar death, fourteen year old Lionel Tate killed six year old Tiffany Eunick in 2001. However that was a evil child sentenced to life in prison, I wonder what the truth is here.
There was a similar case a while back in Florida, when a huge teenage boy killed a tiny little girl, again with supposed wrestling moves (I think it is just an excuse), and liberals were appalled that he got a heavy sentence.
I believe he is her half brother.
Maybe life was too much, but the end result was to little!
Anthony Quinn knocked up his secretary twice, once when he was in his late 70’s and the second time when he was 81.
I was 52 when my daughter was born.
Only God knows how many kids Anthony has. And Anothony has them all over the world. He had quite the reputation, kind of like Strom Thurmond.
He got out, embarked on a life of crime immediately, and is now back in jail. Probably a sociopath.
My older brother would try his wrestling moves on me - he was 5 years old than I.
I wasn’t a premie though, and I would kick him in the nuts, and then run like hell.
And that boys mother was a deputy, several years later that kid was shot during a holdup if not mistaken.
I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve seen little kids who obviously are into “martial arts for kiddies” karate chopping and kicking smaller kids around them. I’ve yet to see a mother admonish one of the little brutes. Their poor siblings are involuntary punching bags and you can tell their pleas for help fall on deaf ears. This happens at places like Target and Sam’s Club. Putting a little kid into training to kick and chop with the goal of administering pain and physical harm is asking for major trouble in my book. Unfortunately in this warped day and age, any stranger who speaks up will probably be charged with something. I’ll bet a lot of innocent kids have suffered a lot of damage from these karate kids.
She was really a beautiful child. That boy has ruined his family and broken his mother’s heart. There must be something very wrong with him.
he is back in prison for 30 years, IIRC.
