poisoned, drowned, then gassed her 4-month daughter and 5-year-old son because she believed that her husband cheated on her. She slit her wrists, but didn't cut deep enough, then firefighters kicked her door in right before she died from the gas.
Over in Brooklyn, 40-year-old Tenika Revell killed her 7-year-old son, Bernard. Revell was suffering from breast cancer, and simply didn't want anyone else taking care of him. Including her mother and boyfriend who is the father of little Bernard, Terrance Johnson.
Are you mad yet? No? Okay then...
In the Bronx, Bamenga gave her kids grape juice with windshield wiper fluid in it, then drowned them in the tub. After that, she turned on the gas burners in the kitchen. Somewhere in there, she cut herself not good enough and was rescued by firefighters from the gas.
In Brooklyn, Revell also put her son in the bathtub, but she didn't drown him. According to her confession to investigators, she dropped appliance after appliance into his water, trying to electrocute him. When that didn't work for her, she took Bernard and beat him over the head with a hammer...repeatedly. Not satisfied at the way her dead son looked, she put a plastic bag over his head and choked him with her hands. Still not convinced that he was dead enough, she wrapped a belt around his neck, finishing her work. Revell popped some pills in an attempt to commit suicide, but...that didn't work.
Revell gets to live to face second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, and gets to die from cancer.
This is truly a selfish act, killing that poor boy and faking herself out like she was trying to commit suicide. Now she's really going to suffer; visions of Bernard playing over and over in her mind.
