Angela Dukes Charged With Killing a Baby

Earlier this year nine-month-old Curtis Williams and his two-year-old sister both tested positive from drugs, him with THC and the girl with cocaine. Both of them were taken from the mother, Katrina Jivers by DSS and put in foster homes after she was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child as well as contributing to the delinquency of a child.

February 8th was the first day that 30-year-old Angela Deniece Dukes, a neonatal intensive care nurse, had the care of Curtis Williams. Apparently Angela was having a hard time getting the boy to stop crying so she allegedly dosed him with benadryl (found in his system) and tape a pacifier in his mouth. Rather than putting Curtis in the crib which was there she left him in the bed on a comforter. It quieted him down alright. The baby was found face down, smothered amid the comforter with the pacifier blocking him from breathing. The child died from asphyxiation.

Angela Dukes was arrested this week (Inmate Incarceration Info) and charged with unlawful neglect of a child. She is currently in the Richland County Jail on a $250,000 bond. Both Angela Dukes (picture above) and Katrina Jivers (pictured below) have horribly failed this child who never had a chance. If Angela is guilty I hope she rots in hell along with the mother.

  • My oh my..how quick we are to judge. I am no stranger to Angela, or to the type care she gives. I was her fellow nursing student and she was, in a word, an AWESOME caregiver. She has tons of experience in the field of caring for others, and I assure you that things are not always as they seem. First things first, she is a caregiver, an RN, by choice (which has to say something of her nature). Secondly, she was a foster parent, which speaks also of her nature (although I know that they’re are exceptions). I am simple saying that as a friend, and caregiver, she was honestly amazing. I am in no way condoning her behavior or the current charges.
    Just allow the WHOLE story, of facts, to come out.

  • that’s hilarious. a woman tapes a pacifier to a baby’s mouth and then lays him face down in a blanket and you come on here and rant about what an awesome caregiver she is and say look at the whole story. ok, looking at the whole story I see A WOMAN WHO TAPED A PACIFIER TO A BABY’S MOUTH AND THEN LAID HIM FACE DOWN IN A BLANKET. What are you her mom? Or her boyfriend? Clearly you must be related to the woman somehow… or were you there? If so, shouldn’t you be tried as an accomplice to murder?

  • No,
    WRONG. Not her boyfriend, mother, sister, nor an accomplice to any such thing. Let me ask you one thing…do you just automatically accept everything the media says or our you simply a bored blogger with an opinion. By the way, are you any sort of medical professional. By the way, no where is it ever reported that she layed the baby face down onto a blanket! Do you have children? If so, are you aware that 9 months olds can easily roll or turn themselves over? She was an awesome caregiver, and it was not a rant, just the facts, because unlike you, I knew her. I don’t typically make comments about any subject matter I am ignorant about, how about you?
    Next time you get a chance, look up freedom of speech, and nowhere beside it will it say accomplish to murder, if so, you would be too!
