Disturbing video released, daycare worker arrested

Surveillance video from Kiddie City Childcare Center in Vicksburg shows a 9 year old's reign of terror over a room of infants.

The boy can be seen punching one little girl multiple times.

He is then seen choking another child, then patting her back as she cries in pain. Another time he violently shakes another child.

In an exclusive interview with a WLBT photojournalist, the boy's aunt says the family is embarrassed by the attacks and the daycare should be shut down.

"He bad. He fight but he don't fight little babies. He do also have a problem. He take medicine every day and he just a normal child," says Vinia Dolley. 

In one instance, you can see the boy kick one of the little girls while a daycare worker looks out the window. Later the boy picks up the girl and kicks her again.

The 9 year old can be seen waiting until workers turn away to attack the girls.

Dolley says they tell the boy not to fight with others.

"I feel bad about him jumping on a two year-old baby, he nine years-old," Dolley said. "He don't fight his own 2-year-old brother like that or cousins."

Vicksburg police have arrested former daycare worker Sandra Trevillion.

She's charged with two counts of contributing to the neglect of a minor.

"This 9-year-old child, he was allowed to pretty much run rough shot over that entire room for a period of 15 to 20 minutes," said Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong. "All his actions went unnoticed."

The parent of one of the girls, Jamie Williams, 29, says his daughter came home for about a week with injuries, including a busted lip and a bite mark on her chin.

"Don't nobody know nothing at the daycare...nobody know nothing," said Williams.

Williams told WLBT Thursday he got upset when daycare workers couldn't give an explanation as to why his 1-year-old daughter was injured at the daycare Monday. That's when he slapped the child he thought was responsible. Police say it was the wrong kid and he was later arrested and charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor.

"I understand why Jamie Williams would be upset," said Armstrong.  "However, even if he had attacked the 9 year old he still would have been arrested and it would have been just as wrong as him attacking the 6 year old."

Police have interviewed the 9-year-old boy and his mother. It's unclear if they'll face charges.

Trevillion was being held on a $2,656 bond Friday evening.

Williams' court date is set for later this month.

The Department of Human Services is also investigating the incidents and other charges could be filed.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
