Houston man allegedly tried to beat 'demon' out of son

This is one of our fine upstanding citizens who believes he can set his child right by attempting to kill him. This son of a bitch needs to be castrated, but that would be to easy. Once he is in prison (if the ACLU dosen't get involved.

A Houston man is in jail on felony charges of critically injuring his 3-year-old son while trying to beat a “demon” out of the boy.

Jacky Tran, 35, is being held on $100,000 bond after his son was flown to Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital Saturday night with multiple skull fractures. The boy is expected to survive.

Sheriff’s deputies pulled up to the house on Lone Dove Court in western Harris County just after 7 p.m. to find all the windows open and loud music blaring from within, according to a court document. Through an open upstairs window, they saw Tran yelling and swinging something — possibly the child — up and down. They heard a child screaming, and forced their way into the house.

They ran upstairs and found the 3-year-old’s head severely swollen and maroon with bruising. The boy was unable to speak, and his eyes were swollen shut.

Tran told them he was trying to beat the demon out of the boy, according to the police report.

Tran faces a possible 5- to 99-year prison sentence if convicted of the felony assault charge, which could become a murder charge if the boy dies. The boy’s condition was not immediately available this afternoon.

Child Protective Services officials were interviewing Tran’s wife and the couple’s other child, a 4-year-old girl, this afternoon to find out more about what happened. The family has had no previous CPS involvement, and Tran appears to have no criminal record in the Houston area.
