Brooklyn DA Says Childbeater Kelsey Smith Will Be Charged with Murder

Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson said on Monday that Kelsey Smith, 20, will be charged with second-degree murder and other charges in the brutal death of three-year-old Jeida Torres, which was ruled a homicide by the New York City Medical Examiner’s office.

The child died on October 18 after allegedly being beaten by Smith. Her brother, 5, was also beaten but survived.

The District Attorney said that there is no arraignment scheduled at this time as the defendant is presently being held at Bellevue Hospital Center.

In a weird aside, the Daily News reports that Smith called 9-1-1 Saturday, acting as if he was a downstairs neighbor complaining about the kids upstairs.

Smith also called his wife and the children’s mother, Kimberly Torres, saying he did something bad to the kids, the News says. Smith was in hiding until his own mother gave him up to police.
