Meet Semeria Greene, 26, of Detroit, Michigan.
This young mother is a mother of five(5) children, four(4) boys and one(1) girl. But on Sunday night, her brood was decreased by one.
During the early morning hours of Sunday, December 30th, neighbors called police to the apartment of the Greene family.
Once deputies arrived, they found one of Semeria Greene’s children bleeding from the chest.
Eight year-old, Tameria Greene, the only girl sibling in the group,was found unresponsive on the floor at the scene.
The authorities recovered three bloodied kitchen knives that were scattered around her.
The little girl was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead and Semeria Greene was taken into custody. The hospital told police Tameria also had bruises, possible bite marks and scratches on her face.
‘This is only the second day of the year and we are charging a parent with a child homicide,’ said Kym Worthy, county prosecutor. ‘This case is made even more profoundly sad because today would have been Tameria’s ninth birthday.’
Semeria Greene’s sister, Tanisha Robinson, does not believe that her sister killed her daughter and claim police should be questioning Greene’s allegedly abusive partner, Jovan Mull, who is the father of three of the boys.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Greene told police her daughter had been making sandwiches in the kitchen when she heard a knock at the door.
It’s unclear what happened next, but Greene said she then saw Tameria lying dead on the living room floor. The police report says there was no evidence the girl was making sandwiches.
Greene had blood on her shirt and sock and was giving her daughter CPR when police arrived, according to reports. Police said she was uncooperative after her arrest, refusing to walk and pretending to fall asleep. They said her breath ‘smelled of metabolizing alcohol.’
According to the Free Press, officers found a bloody knife by the sink in the house, a folding knife on top of the refrigerator and a butcher knife between couch cushions.
They also found a dried blood shoe print in the dining room and dried blood in the living room.
Greene had a bruise under her eye when police arrived at the apartment, which relatives said may have occurred at the hands of her abusive boyfriend.
Daily Mail reports:
State child welfare workers have known of problems with the family for at least two years and have unsuccessfully tried to take Greene’s children into protective custody, said Michigan Department of Human Services Director Maura Corrigan.
Corrigan said an expedited internal review after the death showed that case workers have been trying to protect the children and act on concerns raised by family, friends and neighbors.
‘Most recently, DHS petitioned the court on November 28, unsuccessfully, to remove Tameria and her siblings from her mother’s home,’ Corrigan said in a statement.
It’s not immediately clear why the court blocked the state’s attempts to remove the children from Green’s care.
Corrigan said the department ‘continued to provide court-ordered counseling services to the family as well as conducting in-home visits, the last of which occurred only two days before Tameria’s death.’
‘We share the grief felt by her loved ones and her community,’ the woman said.
Tameria’s 7, 4, 2 and 1-year-old brothers now are in foster care.
