A teenager and adult accomplice are accused of savagely beating a five-year-old boy to death after playing video games and placing his bloody, lifeless body in a garbage bag before dumping it in a dumpster in Milwaukee.
Prince McCree was found 'blood soaked, bound, and gagged in the fetal position' on October 26, just one day after his disappearance from a multifamily home.
Erik Mendoza, 15, and David Pietura, 27, are accused of beating and stabbing the little boy to death, then telling police they didn't know where he was.
Police found Prince’s battered body near the home he and his family shared with several other people, including Pietura and Mendoza.
Court documents say the little boy's mother last saw him the morning of October 25. He was sick, so she kept him home from school.
The boy 'wanted to go into the basement of the residence to play video games,' which he frequently did with Pietura.
The mother assumed the boy was playing with the 27-year-old but when she checked the basement later, it was dark and empty.
