Ohio Father Pleads Guilty to the Rape and Murder of His Ten Year Old Son
I’m having a difficult time seeing how parenthood makes people more godly, mature, responsible, and ethical, as so many Nuclear Family promoters make it out to be.
Assuming this guy in this news article was married at one time (I’m not sure if he was married at one time or not – this article says he was engaged to be married)…
If you’re an older, single adult be aware that Christian dating advice books, blog posts, and pod casts that insist you’ve not been sent a spouse ever (or not yet) is because you don’t deserve one (because you’re not godly enough, not worthy enough, or whatever enough!)…
….news stories like this one show that if there is a God, he’s not with-holding spouses from child rapist and child murdering dirt bags, so I don’t think there is some kind of thresh-hold one must meet before God will send someone a spouse, or permit them to marry, or however you wish to put it.
A search warrant carried out on December 16, 2019, revealed multiple items of interest at the home, including a Taser, four Taser-style dog collars, and a combination lock located in the attic.
Authorities said Takoda Collins was covered in scratches and bruises stemming from a sexual assault. They also said that the boy was forced to eat his own feces.
…“Takoda was kept in a dirty, locked, dark attic and abused daily over the course of several years,” an affidavit read. “The interviews also revealed that Takoda was held underwater and gasping for breath prior to succumbing to his injuries.”

An Ohio father has pleaded guilty to kidnapping, raping and murdering his 10-year old son, who was subject to years of “sustained extreme abuse and torture“ before he was beaten to death, according to prosecutors.
Al Mutahan McLean, 32, copped to a slew of charges in the “extreme abuse” of his son Takoda Collins, Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck, Jr. announced Wednesday.
The abuse began in 2015 and ended with the child’s death on Dec. 13, 2019 after he was “traumatically raped and beat” by his father, Heck said.
“Takoda was subject to various types of abuse, which escalated in extreme torture,” the Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
McLean faces a minimum sentence of 40 years behind bars and a maximum of life imprisonment.
… According to court documents obtained to the Dayton Daily News, Takoda lived in horrific conditions in his dad’s home, where he was locked naked in the attic alone and was regularly subject to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
The boy was forced to stand bent over and cross-legged for long periods of time or face a beating by McLean if he stopped, the newspaper reported.
…He was also found with cuts and bruises found all over his body, and photos obtained by the Dayton Daily News showed blood splattered on the wall’s home during the subsequent investigation.
The couple took Takoda out of the Dayton Public School system in May 2018, according to prosecutors, further isolating the child.
Al McLean, 32, pleaded guilty to charges of murder, kidnapping, rape and child endangering during a plea hearing Wednesday afternoon in front of Judge Dennis Adkins.
McLean’s plea came hours after his fiancée Amanda Hinze also pleaded guilty to charges of manslaughter and child endangering.
…“Takoda was kept in a dirty, locked, dark attic and abused daily over the course of several years,” read an affidavit and statement of facts. “The interviews also revealed that Takoda was held underwater and gasping for breath prior to succumbing to his injuries.”
