WILLIAMSPORT – A man is charged with murdering a 19-month-old boy who was in his care.
Court papers say 20-year-old Fabian Peterkin allegedly beat to death Marquise Hanible at a home in Williamsport he shared with the child’s mother and two-and-a-half-year-old brother.
Police and paramedics were called to the home on April 12 and found the child in cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at Williamsport Hospital.
An autopsy showed that the toddler died from blunt force trauma to his body, including broken ribs, laceration to his heart and lungs, and bruises all over his body. The coroner ruled the death a homicide.
Peterkin was found in Philadelphia and returned to Williamsport on Monday. He is being held in the Lycoming County Prison without bail.
Fabian Peterkin has a MySpace page. I suppose everyone does now. Anyway, Like a lot of folks on MySpace he has some pictures posted that must be important to him.
One in particular is a picture of young Marquise entitled “My Yound Boul” and when you click on the picture the comment he has on it is ” R.I.P MARQUISE ILL ALWAYS LUV YOU LIL NIGGA ”
What a wonderful way to tell someone you love them. Beat them to death and then post a picture of the little nigga. Christ I hope this guy rots in hell.
