DAYTON — The mother of a 10-year-old Dayton boy who died after what police described as extreme child abuse says she tried to warn authorities that her son was in danger and now wishes she just would have gone ahead and kidnapped him.
Robin Collins, the mother of Takoda Collins, told this news organization that she called the police and filed documents with a Wisconsin court, begging them to get Takoda out of the home where authorities have since said the boy was locked naked in an attic, emotionally and physically abused, raped and eventually either held underwater or forced to drink a lot of water before he died Dec. 13.
The boy’s father, Al-Mutahan McLean, faces four counts endangering children, two counts felonious assault, and one count rape of a child younger than 13, after indictments in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
Also, Amanda Hinze, 28, and Jennifer Ebert, 25, two sisters who authorities said both lived in the home, are charged with four counts of endangering children.
