Melanie Emerson allowed her boyfriend rape her baby to death.


A Tennessee, USA mother, Melanie Emerson, has been arrested after she encouraged her boyfriend, Rhasean Lowry, to rape her 3-year-old daughter, Tatiana, to death.

The toddler was raped to death about six months ago and police swiftly arrested Lowry for the crime but her Melanie's arrest is coming after her five-year-old son, TrayVon, told the police that Lowry routinely abused him and his sister with their mother watching.

Lowry, who was in a relationship with Tatiana’s mom, according to Times Free Press, was charged with felony murder, aggravated child abuse, rape of a child and making false reports in connection to the girl’s death.

In an effort to avoid responsibility, Lowry told police the girl had fallen down the stairs while he was caring for her, but surveillance video at the hotel he was staying at did not corroborate his claims.

The video only showed Lowry carrying the girl’s lifeless body down the stairs on his way to bringing her to the hospital.
