Kelly McKenith was pronounced dead at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey. The Essex County Corrections officer apparently shot her boyfriend, Lewis Goosby, 3-times, before killing her 4-month old son, Kaire, and finally committing suicide.
Goosby apparently leaped out of a 2nd-story window to escape the attack by his girlfriend.
Sadly, we again express interest and outrage over the portrayal of the criminal mother versus the victim father.
From the article about the killer:
DiVincenzo said McKenith had an exemplary work record, leaving supervisors and colleagues to grasp for answers.
From the article about the victim:
Goosby has a record that includes convictions for drug-dealing, weapons possession and death by auto.
I’m not sure what good comes from expressing sympathy and grasping for excuses when a women attacks and kills while at the same time, denigrating the male victim and target of the violence by printing his criminal history, which apparently has nothing to do with what transpired.
For the Full Story: Newark mother shoots her 4-month-old son to death, turns gun on herself
You should know your facts before labeling this low life scum a victim. This low life was sleeping with Kelly’s daughter, while she worked everyday. When she found out she kicked him out of the house but he continued to come around while she worked. This “victim” had several babies out of wedlock and the word on the street is he used the baby as a shield while Kelly was shooting and then he jumped out the window. So you see you had a woman come home from work to find her “boyfriend” in her home with her daughter. She was tormented, humiliated, betrayed and no of course that is not an excuse for what she did – she lost it. And many people hope that the low life scum – Louis burns in hell. Keep your eyes open the truth will be told eventually – victim my azz.
Once again, we will reiterate our position – despite your allegations about Mr. Goosby, we don’t condone resorting to attempted murder, murder, and suicide as a solution. Further, anyone who comes here and chooses to defend the behavior and actions of Ms. McKenith should think twice. For goodness sake she shot her own daughter in the chest at point-blank range! If you’re expecting sympathy for McKenith, you won’t find it here.
Mr. Goosby may very well be an ex-con and lowlife “scum of the earth.” It doesn’t change what Kelly McKenith did even a little bit. It doesn’t excuse it even a little bit. A lot of people lost loved ones that day and for that, we’re very sorry.
So, if you read the comment posted by the girl shaina, you would know that Goosby supposedly used the baby as a shield. if this is true that means the baby was more than likely shot by accident. The boyfriend used the baby as a shield and in the midst of her trying to shoot him she accidently shot the baby. After this happened she probably figured she killed the baby so she might as well kill herself. It does make more sense considering the circumastances.
Juanita, I’ll stick to the police investigation and report as it currently stands. I won’t rely on some anonymous commenter who is likely somehow connected to the killer as the authority on the situation. Further, regardless of whatever it is that occurred in that household, the only person brandishing a firearm with the intention of killing a person or persons – was Kelly McKenith.
Stop with the excuse-making and justification.
