TRAGIC: Two Muskogee Women Get 20 Years For Beating Child So Severely He Had Two Strokes

Two Muskogee women have been sentenced to 20 years in prison after prosecutors say they beat a 5-year-old so severely that he suffered two strokes while hospitalized.

Rachel Jean Stevens, 29, and Kayla Ann Jones, 26, pleaded no contest on Friday to child abuse and child neglect charges, according to court records. A Muskogee County judge sentenced the Stevens and Jones, who were set to start trial on Monday, to 20 years in prison in accordance with a plea agreement.

According to a previous story, investigators determined that the boy had been locked in a room and bound with duct tape over his eyes. The boy told investigators in December 2015 that his mother, Stevens, and Stevens’ girlfriend, Jones, had beaten him with a belt.

Police alleged in a probable cause affidavit that Stevens hit the boy’s hand with a hammer and that Jones “kicked him so hard in the groin that it made him bleed.”

Officers responded to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa on Dec. 8 after the boy was transferred there from a Muskogee clinic because of lesions on his face and seizures he was having. The boy was then airlifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where staff determined he was malnourished and had multiple broken bones at different stages of healing.

Muskogee County District Attorney Orvil Loge said Wednesday the plea agreement, which includes a stipulation ordering neither woman to contact the child throughout their incarceration, was in the boy’s best interest.

“It was a conclusion that was carefully discussed with the family,” he said of the agreement, calling the matter a “very serious case.”

“The nature of the injuries were very severe, but the child is doing very well now in a loving home. He is a completely different child now than when this (case) first came in. He received the most wonderful care and is in a great home right now, and I feel confident that he is going to be OK.”

Jones and Stevens were scheduled for a judicial review in September 2018, at which time their case will be be reviewed by a judge, according to court records. If granted, the sentence for Stevens and Jones could be modified.

Marissa Mowry, the nanny police say molested an 11-year-old boy who got her pregnant, is expecting another child.

Mowry was in court Monday with a noticeable baby bump. Sources tell FOX 13 News the father is her current boyfriend.

Last month, FOX 13 spoke to the alleged victim’s mother. She says Mowry was the family’s live-in nanny for years. When Mowry got pregnant, she told everyone the father was an ex-boyfriend. The victim’s mother had no reason to doubt it until her son told her the truth.

“Mowry abused my son physically, mentally and sexually,” she said.

Now the victim and his mother are raising his 3-year-old son. She hopes Mowry will go to jail for a long time. “I hope she goes away for life,” she said.

Mowry faces child sex charges. She is back in court in November.
