Mother kills 4-year-old son with broom for breaking an egg

The baby had more than 30 blunt impact injuries to his head

District Attorney Gonzalez said: “Little Zamair was an innocent boy who did not deserve to die. It is truly disturbing that his mother, the person who was supposed to care for his wellbeing and safety, viciously beat him and left him for dead.”

Zarah Coombs was sentenced by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Miriam Cyrulnik to 17 years in state prison and five years’ post-release supervision following her guilty plea last month to first-degree manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child.

Food

According to the police investigation, Zamair, asked his mother for food.

When she refused, the boy went to the refrigerator to get something to eat and accidentally dropped an egg on the floor.

Coombs became enraged, grabbed a broomstick, and beat her son until he lost consciousness.

She then placed the victim inside a large Tupperware container that functioned as a tub and was filled with some water.

She left him there while she went to breastfeed her newborn.

Unresponsive

Coombs boyfriend, who had been out of the home, returned at approximately 8:45 p.m., discovered the child unresponsive and called 911.

Zamair was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where he died hours later.

He was covered by more than 30 blunt impact injuries to his head and more than 30 blunt impact injuries to his limbs and torso, according to doctors.
