Woman Tries to Beat Ex’s 8-Year-Old Son to Death

Prince George’s County police said Tuesday that 26-year-old Helen Marie Newsome broke into the home in Landover over the weekend. After hiding for more than 12 hours until the boy’s father went to work Saturday morning, police say Newsome covered the boy’s head with a pillow and beat him with a dumbbell weight. But the boy fought back and managed to escape to a neighbor’s home.

Newsome jumped out a window, but police say she was arrested nearby.

The boy’s father had recently broken up with Newsome. She is charged with first-degree attempted murder.
