A mum kneeled on her son’s neck while asking him “do you want to know how George Floyd died?” as he gasped for air, it is claimed.
It is alleged Keriann Smith pinned her 14-year-old son to the floor in their apartment in Genoa City, Wisconsin, US and then held her knee on his throat.
Smith, who is 5 ft 9 and 9 and nine and and a half stone allegedly told her son: “Do you want to know how George Floyd died? He died something like this. Do you want to die just like him?” the Kenosha News reports.
It is claimed she also cruelly taunted him during the incident on June 20 by saying “tell me you can’t breathe. Tell me. tell me.”
Smith, 37, has been charged with child abuse, strangulation and battery.
The boy called cops as his sister recorded the incident on video, which she then shared with police.
It is claimed the video shows Smith kneeling on the boy’s neck as he squirms and gasps for air for 48 seconds.
The boy suffered neck abrasions, scratches on his back, and bite marks on one shoulder.
