Father Sentenced For Scalding Water Death Of Son

August 1, 2017

An Escambia County man has been sentenced to three decades in prison for his part in killing a child.

Christopher Redd pled guilty to one count of aggravated manslaughter of a child. Following his plea, Circuit Judge John Miller sentenced Redd to 30 years in  state prison.

In January 2017, Jennifer Perry entered a plea of guilty to first degree felony murder.  At that time, Perry was sentenced by Circuit Judge John Miller to life in state prison. Redd and Perry were arrested in July 2014 for the death of their two-year old son, Bryson Redd. The child died from injuries sustained when he was scalded with a  pot of boiling water.

Redd and Perry both gave statements that they believed the child was burnt as a result of his or his brother’s actions. However, during a recent interview conducted by the State Attorney’s Office and the Pensacola Police Department, Perry disclosed that she had her hands on the pot of boiling water when the incident occurred.

    Please do not call these two “Parents”….yet they have the Right to have a child for whatever irresponsible reason they can come up with. Maybe its time to give Rights To The Unborn…

    Its a sad world we live in. He will be freed before a nonviolent drug offender. He should never see freedom.

    There is no justice. They should be executed for the tortured murder. They are murderers.

    No words can describe a parent that would do such an thing to their child. I would describe a punishment for them but William would have to edit it, so will save him the trouble. Well I will say this, stake them out in the hot sun on an ant bed and when they beg for relief kill the ants with boiling water.
