This is possibly the most horrific, tragic, and chilling story that we've heard in quite some time.
Peter Lucas Moses, a religious extremist and possible cult leader in North Carolina, has been charged with not only killing 28-year-old Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy, but also his four-year-old stepson Jadon Higganbothan, because he believed him to be gay!
According to authorities, Moses lived in a one-room home with three women and nine children, and because he believed homosexuality to be an abomination, he shot the child. It's currently believed that McKoy was killed because she tried to escape.
Worse yet, the deplorable acts were only uncovered by police when one of the other woman living with the psycho escaped and reported him, and the child's mother, Vania Rae Sisk, is suspected of being complicit in his death!
If found guilty, Moses faces the death penalty, and Sisk is also being charged for her connection to the crime.
Unbelievable. It is truly a sad, sad world out there - especially when one thinks that all of this was done in the name of a higher power that's supposed to love unconditionally.
Our heart goes out to that poor child, the loved ones and friends of McKoy.
May they both rest in peace.
