Bring me an old priest and a young priest CONT…

Ray Hemphill, 45, was charged with physical abuse of a child causing great bodily harm, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $25,000 in fines.

Terrance Cottrell Jr. suffocated after a church elder at the Faith Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith on Milwaukee’s north side sat on his chest, police said. The Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide Monday. The cause was “mechanical asphyxia due to external chest compression.”

Milwaukee County District Attorney E. Michael McCann said a charge of homicide would have required prosecutors to prove that Hemphill knew his actions had a likelihood of killing the boy, rather than just hurting him

Sitting on someone’s chest makes it so they can not breathe. No breath = no oxygen. No oxygen = Dead. Charge should be murder, and let all the exorcists and rebirthers be forewarned.
