Mother, Boyfriend Now Facing Murder Charges In Boy’s Death Over Spilled Cereal

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A 19-year-old mother and her 26-year-old boyfriend now face first-degree murder charges in the beating death of 4-year-old Tahjir Smith. Lisa Smith and Keiff King remain in jail without the possibility of bail. Investigators say the young boy had been brutally beaten for spilling his cereal on the morning of January 22. His mother told police she disciplined him after seeing him being ‘sneaky’ and running toward the couch and that he began to stutter, which he did when scared.
