“My son murdered his four-year-old sister and spared me so I’d suffer forever – but I forgive him” Mother shares her painful story
A mother whose son killed his 4-year-old sister in 2007 is now opening up about her heartbreaking experience and how she’s managed to come to terms with it.
Charity Lee was at work, waiting tables in a sports bar when police officers arrived with the terrible news that her four-year-old daughter Ella was “hurt”. Already panicking, she asked to be taken to her right away, then asked about her son Paris Bennett, then aged 13. She had left both kids at home in Abilene, Texas, with a babysitter. Police then told her, “we have him” and that’s when Charity’s world began to fall apart.
She soon found out that little Ella was dead, murdered by her own half-brother. Paris, a highly intelligent teenager with an IQ of 141, had convinced the babysitter she could go home. He then calmly walked into Ella’s bedroom and began beating and choking her, before stabbing her 17 times. After killing her, he called a friend and chatted for six minutes before finally calling police.
