30-year-old father who punched 5-year-old son to death over cake faces 27-years in prison


A 30-year-old father identified as Travis Stackhouse, 30, has pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless homicide, child abuse, and child neglect this week in the June 2019 death of his 5-year-old son, Sir Amer Stackhouse and now faces 27-years in prison when he is sentenced next month.

The convict (a Winsconsin man) according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, who punched his 5-year-old son to death over a slice of cake pleaded guilty to homicide and his guilty plea came after two days of witness testimony in his trial and after prosecutors introduced his taped confession as evidence

Prosecutors alleged that the father was upset that his children were eating most of his Father’s Day cheesecake, and punched his son and smacked the boy’s face with the back of his hand, which contains metal from a surgery, according to the newspaper.

The child was reportedly pronounced dead early the next morning after Stackhouse returned from a bar and the family called 911.

Sir Amer suffered a ruptured stomach, bruised kidneys, and a torn adrenal gland, and died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen, the article said.
