A South Dakota woman reportedly admitted to kicking a 5-year-old boy to death, according to the arresting officers.

Julia Lee Carter, 21, called Mitchell police to report that she was headed to the emergency room because the boy, who she lived with, was not breathing. Doctors attempted to save the boy’s life, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
