Bryeon Hunter Apparently Beaten, Murdered by Mother and Mother’s Boyfriend

Michael Scott and Lakeshia Baker

A 22-year-old Maywood woman admitted she and her boyfriend beat her 1-year-old son with a belt and plastic hangers and left him to die on their bathroom floor, prosecutors said in court Saturday.

The couple then disposed of the child's lifeless body in a backpack before devising an elaborate cover-up which included pretending that the child had been abducted, prosecutors alleged in court.

A Cook County judge ordered Lakeshia Baker, 22, held without bail. Michael Scott, 21, was held in lieu of $750,000 bail. Both are from the 300 block of South 10th Avenue in west suburban Maywood.

Baker, who had two black eyes, cried in court after a judge announced her bond. Sally Daly, spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office, said Baker spells her first name differently at different times; it is spelled Lakeshia on her driver's license.
