Cancer stricken mom Tenika Revell, 40, killed her son in their Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment, by beating him with a hammer and choking him with her bare hands. After her son was dead, she tried to kill herself by overdosing on pills.
“She loved him so much she didn’t want anybody else to raise him," said her boyfriend Terrace Johnson.
"Revell took medication for anger issues, but her mental health rapidly declined after she was pregnant with her child last year and then having to abort the pregnancy because of her spreading cancer," Johnson said.
Revell is an ex-con with a long rap sheet. She was convicted of attempted robbery, and she did two stints in prison.
She is now facing charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child, while continuing to be treated at Woodhull Hospital Sunday according to your Jewish news.
