A north suburban Waukegan girl who was hospitalized last week died of child abuse injuries and her death has been ruled a homicide, officials have determined.

Skylar Mendez, 4, died Sunday at Lurie Children's Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. An autopsy Wednesday found she died of multiple injuries caused by child abuse and her death was ruled a homicide.

The girl's mother and 19-year-old Johnathan Fair brought Skylar to Vista Medical Center East on Dec. 13 after she suffered a head injury at their apartment,

Officers were initially told the girl fell, but an investigation determined her injuries were caused by physical abuse, police said. Fair was identified as the boyfriend of the girl's mother, who wasn't home at the time the Skylar was injured.

Fair was taken into custody and charged with aggravated battery to a child, police said.

An Illinois man accused of fatally beating a 4-year-old girl after she spilled juice on his Xbox last month is facing life in prison, authorities said.

Prosecutors have indicted Johnathan Fair, 19, on four counts of first-degree murder, according to the Lake County News-Sun.

Skylar Mendez, the daughter of Fair’s girlfriend, died a few days after she was rushed to the hospital in what police eventually concluded was a homicide case, the Daily Herald reported.

Fair initially told cops she was injured after a fall.

Doctors found signs of previous physical abuse, Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Scheller told the News-Sun.

The alleged beating caused swelling in Mendez’s brain that doctors were unable to relieve.

Oh jeez. Wtf is wrong with people? How can anyone beat a child to death?
Worse. He stabbed her. She spilled juice on an Xbox game.
Post automatically merged:

I must be insane.
I just reread and there was no stabbing. But still beat to death for spilling juice.

I wonder where the mother was while her daughter was being beaten to death.

If I was a working single mother the last thing i would do is allow some dust mite to sit in my house and play video games while I am working.

That little girl was old enough to tell her mom what was going on and probably knew he was abusing her daughter.
Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Scheller said on Thursday that authorities plan to seek life in prison for Fair because of the alleged ‘heinous’ circumstances.

Scheller said that on the night of December 13, Fair was babysitting Skylar Mendez, the four-year-old daughter of his girlfriend.

The young girl spilled juice on Fair’s Xbox. Prosecutors allege that he punished her in response.

Fair then took the girl to the hospital. He told doctors that the girl fell and hit her head.

But in statements to police, Fair acknowledged that he shook the girl ‘really hard’ and beat her as punishment for spilling the juice, according to prosecutors.

Authorities say Fair kicked Skylar down the hallway numerous times.

Fair rushed the girl to hospital after she passed out during the attack.

Doctors at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago tried to relieve swelling in Skylar’s brain, but were not successful, according to prosecutors.

Authorities said doctors noticed signs of physical abuse, including violent shaking, that likely stretched back months.

She looks like the sweetest, timid, quiet little soul, and you know she died terrified and confused. How many of these douche canoes have we had that lose their temper over a fricken video game? How fucked do you have to be that a video game is worth more than a child's life? Apparently more than their own life too, since they end up in prison for life.... over a video game. I just don't get it... I love my PS4 but I can't comprehend ever valuing it over any life... adult, child, animal or otherwise. How does that even work??
