6-Year-Old Lured to His Death by Grandmother

 

 

Martha White, 63, had been babysitting her two grandchildren when she lured 6-year-old Mason Rhinehart into the bathroom and locked the door behind them. Mason's brother, 8, heard cries coming from the bathroom, "I don't want to die, please don't kill me." He said he tried to get through the locked door but couldn't, and instead called his father and hid, reports say.

The boys were playing video games when White told Mason that she had a surprise for him. After locking the 6-year-old in the bathroom she stabbed the boy to death. Mason's brother said he saw White leave telling him that she "had a surprise for him, too." 

Police found White a short distance away from the home covered in blood with a bottle of wine and a xanax. Police are not certain of the motive; White has been booked with a first degree murder charge at the Leon County Jail
