‘Keep this monster behind bars’: Woman charged with stabbing 3-yr-old boy to death SMIRKS as judge reads charges

The evil smirk on the face of Bionca Ellis, the black woman charged with stabbing to death a 3-year-old white boy, as she stood in a Cuyahoga County courtroom prompted many calls for not only capital punishment but for her execution to be held publicly.

As seen in the disturbing video below, Ellis mugged for the camera during her arraignment, smiling and giggling as the judge read out loud the indictment of charges against her.

Ellis pleaded not guilty to stabbing three-year-old Julian Wood to death in the parking lot of the North Olmsted Giant Eagle store, a crime that was partially captured on video. Ellis was arrested with what is believed to be the murder weapon — according to local police, Ellis stole two knives from the Volunteers of America Thrift Store, which is next door to Giant Eagle.

She allegedly spotted Margot Wood and Julian, who was seated in a shopping cart, leaving the Giant Eagle store and began stalking them. She is accused of attacking the child in the parking lot and then stabbing the mother as she attempts to pull her son to safety. Margot, 37, survived her stab wounds.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Ellis, and the judge set bond at the maximum of $5 million.

Julian’s distraught father, Jared Wood, spoke in court on behalf of his family two days after burying his son, asking for no bail.

“Your honor, the day, one week ago, she took everything from us,” the tearful father said. “There is nothing that could ever replace my son or anything that my wife or I or even my other kids are going through. It’s horrendous.”

“Do whatever you can to keep this monster behind bars,” he beseeched the judge.

“This case is truly devastating. I want to express my heartfelt condolences to the Wood family during this difficult time,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor O’Malley said, according to WKYC. “As a father, I could not begin to imagine this grief, but I can promise that we will do everything in our power to bring justice for Julian Wood and the Wood family.”

The media has largely ignored the racial factors involved in the case, reporting that it was a “random act.”

“X” user Alexander Cortes shared these thoughts: “If a white woman stabbed a black toddler to death in a parking lot and acted this way in court, there would be full scale violent protests and riots across the USA. It would be called a hate crime, politicians would make speeches and call for a day of mourning, ‘white supremacy violence’ would be declared an epidemic, the death penalty would be demanded, and it would be front page news everywhere.”

The horrific story proves without a doubt that evil walks among us. Suffice it to say, there was little if any sympathy for a woman who personifies all that is evil.

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses on X, beginning with Elon Musk himself:
