18 hours ago
Deranged mother survived after trying to kill herself by taking pills.
A Brooklyn mother killed her 7-year-old son with a hammer because she believed she was dying from breast cancer and didn’t want anyone else to raise her son, according to the New York Daily News.
“She loved him so much she didn’t want nobody else to have him,” Terrace Johnson said of his longtime girlfriend Tenika Revell, to the New York Daily News.
The mother took her son Bernard Revell with her and called her mother in Florida to tell her that she murdered the child. She took pills to try to kill herself but survived.
Revell had done two stints in prison for attempted robbery and attempted burglary.

Johnson said her mental health declined rapidly in the last year after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was so bad she had to get an abortion during a pregnancy she had with her first child with Johnson.
“That’s when she started really going downhill,” Johnson said to the New York Daily News.
Revell is facing charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child. She called the cops shortly before 11 p.m. Friday to confess to the murder
