Couple ‘had sex and ate pizza as they tortured three-year-old son to death’

A couple had sex and ate pizza as they tortured their three-year-old son to death, a court has heard.

Jillian Tait and boyfriend Gary Fellenbaum are accused of torturing and eventually murdering Tait’s child over a three-day period during which they are said to have hung him upside down by his feet, taped him to a chair and beat him with objects including a frying pan and a metal rod.

Prosecutors today alleged that the pair, who live in a mobile home in Chester County, Pennsylvania, had sex, ate pizza and laughed as they carried out the abuse.

‘Let me tell you an American horror story,’ said district attorney Thomas Hogan.

‘Little Scotty McMillan is dead. He was punched in the face and in the stomach, he was scourged with a homemade whip, he was lashed with a metal rod, he was tied to a chair and beaten, he was tied upside down by his feet and beaten, his head was smashed through a wall and at the end of that he had bruises on top of bruises all over his body.’

Police said they only learned of the abuse after the child became unresponsive and the couple called paramedics.

Nurses in the emergency room at the hospital wept when they saw the three-year-old’s body, Mr Hogan said.

The couple also had the care of another boy, aged six, who is also said to have been abused and is now under the care of relatives.

Police also charged Amber Fellenbaum, Mr Fellenbaum’s estranged wife, who lived with the couple in the mobile home.
