2 women charged in death of boy who was starved, burnedSubmitted: 12/03/2016
MILWAUKEE - Two women are charged in the death of a 7-year-old boy who was starved, burned with cigarettes, beaten and whipped.


Court records show Trevion Winningham weighed 44 pounds and injured from head to toe when he died Tuesday.

On Saturday, 44-year-old Etter Hughes and 47-year-old Mary Martinez were charged with child neglect resulting in death and other counts. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2g5e8aB ) Trevion's 9-year-old brother told police Martinez routinely beat them. He's hospitalized with injuries.

Court records don't list an attorney for either woman.

Police say Hughes agreed to take Trevion and his brother from their mother in August. They moved in with Martinez, where the boys were subjected to torture and starvation.

Hughes has a prior neglect conviction after a baby was tortured in her home and died.

RHINELANDER - You probably wouldn't want to pick up stray dogs in your car every day. But that's what many Oneida County Humane Society workers have needed to do a lot of lately.  But not any longer.

The Humane Society got a mildly used Dodge Caravan this month. An anonymous donor gave $10,000, then Rhinelander Toyota and GM chipped in $5,000 each.

"It's nice that the donation came when it did," Humane Society Director Bria Swartout said. "We definitely probably wouldn't have gotten a vehicle as wonderful as this one is without a huge donation that we did get."
