A 4-year-old child is in critical condition after his mother viciously attacked him with a garden tool and mutilated his sexual organs.
A call to 911 by a passing FedEx driver alerted police to a woman who appeared to be giving a child CPR in the driveway of a home. The FedEx driver, Netha Preston, soon realized that woman was not trying to save the child when she witnessed the woman slamming the boy’s head onto the edge of the driveway.
“I thought she was giving him CPR, but then she started slamming his head on the edge of the concrete driveway. I turned so I could see, and she raised the knife and started stabbing the baby. She had to be sick, or on drugs,” said Preston. “It’s no way somebody could do their blood like that. There’s no way.”
When deputies arrived they found 23-year-old Jenea Mungia flipping her shit armed with a garden tool, naked from the waist up on top of her 4-year-old boy. Mungia ignored requests to move away from the child forcing police to tackle her and cuff her. Blood found in the home indicated that she started assaulting the boy inside, dragging him out to the driveway where it continued. Her bloody shirt would be found in the driveway.
According to friends of Mungia, she suffered post-partum psychosis after the birth of her child which she was hospitalized, treated and released for. She recently moved home with her parents after a break-up with a boyfriend. No word on if that boyfriend is the boy’s father. A CPS official said they had no prior history with the family and no other children lived in the home.
The boy, who has not been named, suffered multiple stabs wounds to his body including his genitals being mutilated. He was transferred by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for his injuries. He is currently listed in critical condition.
Mungia is being held at the Harris County Jail and charges are pending bearing the results of a mental health evaluation.
