Dallas, TX — Police say 37-year-old Carlnelus Delaney Simmons intentionally dipped his girlfriend’s toddler into a pot of boiling water last month, causing third-degree burns to the child’s feet, legs, buttocks and hand. After spending nearly five weeks in the hospital, Jabraylon Bables, just 16-months-old, died from his injuries on Saturday. On November 5, Simmons, a convicted murderer, called 911 to report that Jabraylon had been severely injured while in his care. He told first responders that he had accidentally spilled hot water on the kid. His story, of course, didn’t jibe with the injuries and he was hauled in on charges of felony injury to a child. Doctors say the skin had melted off of Jabraylon’s legs and feet. Surgeons had to remove more than 60 percent of his intestines in two separate operations. He suffered kidney failure and his body was so swollen, he was unrecognizable. The medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide.
