Jordan Belliveau's Mother Charged With Murder, Struck Son in 'Moment of Frustration,' Police Say
Charisse Stinson, 21, is charged with first-degree murder.
The mother of a 2-year-old boy who was found dead Tuesday has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
Charisse Stinson, 21, had reported her son, Jordan Belliveau, missing early Sunday. She told police she accepted a ride from a stranger named Antwan as she carried Jordan in the Largo, Florida, area about 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
After getting into the man’s white 2010 Toyota Camry, Jordan’s mother said she told police the man punched her in the face and knocked her out. She said she woke up hours later and alone in Largo Central Park.
However, according an arrest affidavit obtained by WFTS, Largo police said that Stinson admitted to killing her son in a "moment of frustration," which "in turn caused the back of his head to strike an interior wall of her home."
"After the blow to the head, the victim suffered seizures during the night, which lead to further decline [in his health], resulting in his death," the affidavit stated.
Instead of getting help, according to the affidavit, Stinson took her son to the wooded area where his body was found Tuesday.
Police said further details would be released Wednesday.
A history of domestic violence reportedly exists between Jordan’s parents and Child Protective Services recently had investigated the family. Jordan's father was arrested for allegedly punching Jordan's mother in the mouth, according to WFLA-TV.
