In another example of the destruction meth has on families, a New Mexico mother has been charged with literally stomping her nine-year-old son to death. 

38-year-old Synthia Varela-Casaus first said little Omaree's death was an accident, then said she kicked him while disciplining the child, claiming it was an accident. But six months before, he had made a 9-1-1 call which painted a story of ongoing abuse.

On that call, Varela-Casaus and the boy's stepfather were allegedly captured in a conversation which showed just how poorly the boy was treated. According to the Daily Mail, the couple were recorded saying the following: 

'He's a s***, everything f*****g hurts you,' says the man. 'How can it hurt you one day and not the next day Omaree? It doesn't, does it?! You just want attention right!?' the woman adds.The abusers then begin threatening violence on the boy. 'Yeah, f*****g beat the s*** out of you Omaree,' the man says.

 Now crying, Omaree shouts 'stop, please.' 'Shut the f*** up before I really pop you hard man,' the man fires back. 

'You caused this on yourself Omaree, cause you don't want to f*****g change do you?' the woman shouts. And the man says: 'You want me to be your dad? F*** you! I ain't gonna be s*** to you. Don't you even f*****g look at me as your dad. F*** you Omaree! F*** you.'I never hated nobody like you in my life, ever... You know that Omaree. I hate you more than I ever hated anybody in my whole life. And I've been on this earth 41 years, and nobody made me feel the way you do Omaree.'

That 9-1-1 call led to a visit by police (WATCH IT HERE), who failed to file a report or follow up. Months later, Omaree was allegedly killed by his mother. The stepfather has now been charged with child abuse and bribing a witness.
