Cezar Taylor

On July 28 2010, five days after suffering a vicious assult from his mother’s boyfriend, 6-month-old Cezar Taylor died in hospital of severe brain injuries. In the days before his death, Cezar was referred to by his accused killer James Allan Hemana as ‘zombie boy’.

Baby called ‘zombie boy’ before dying.

A six month-old baby was referred to as “zombie boy” after being held upside down, violently shaken and dropped on a bed, the Crown says. James Hemana has denied murdering baby Cezar Taylor but pleaded guilty to failing to provide the necessaries of life.

Cezar was taken to Middlemore hospital with severe brain injuries and died five days later on July 28, 2010. Crown prosecutor Josh Shaw opened the Crown case this morning and told the court that Hemana’s cousin took two photographs of baby Cezar on her mobile phone, days before he was admitted to hospital.

“He was constantly vomiting, barely awake and his eyes would roll. He was referred to as ‘zombie boy’,” Mr Shaw said. He said Hemana was living with baby Cezar’s mother in Mangere and was jealous of the six-month old. He would also get angry when the baby would cry.

Mr Shaw said that on one occasion, Cezar was crying and woke Hemana, who yelled and swore at the baby. Hemana is alleged to have grabbed the baby by the front of his onesie pajamas.

“He violently punches him back and forth repeatedly before dropping him on to the bed.” Mr Shaw said Hemana also picked Cezar up by one leg and again violently shook him before dropping him on the bed.

He said Cezar’s mother, Victoria Taylor, tried to intervene. Hemana is alleged to have told her: “I don’t give a f***, b****. I’ll waste all of yous”. Mr Shaw said Ms Taylor described her son as a “very different baby” after the two incidents.

“Most of the time he was effectively lifeless and unresponsive.” He read from a statement from Ms Taylor: “Before he was alert. He would talk away, watch TV. Now he just sits there and rolls his eyes. He looked like a dog and just sat there.”

It was about five days later that Ms Taylor took her son to hospital. Mr Shaw said she was prevented from going earlier by Hemana. He said Hemana did not go to the hospital with Ms Taylor, told her not to mention him and to say bruises on the baby’s head were caused by bumps and falls.

“In short, in anger and frustration, he gambled with Cezar’s life and ultimately took his life.”

    Another life wasted.. and what’s even more tragic is that it could have been avoided. If I had an abusive partner, I would have ran out the door with my infant the minute he started hurting the child. Heck, I’d even have my partner imprisoned!

    I can’t believe the Mother stood by such an ugly, abusive man and allowed him to do that to her baby!!!! My partner and I have 5 wonderful children who we absolutely love and protect. I would do ANYTHING to protect my children from ANY sort of abuse and there is no way that I would allow any MAN to lay a hand on my children!!!! Both my partner and I are of Maori descent and we were both brought up in the era of “hidings” from our parents, some hidings were severe but, it hasn’t done us any harm. It’s embarrassing that New Zealand has one of the highest rates of child abuse / child deaths per capita than any other country in the world. What’s worse is the Mums, family members, friends and neighbours who sit by knowing what’s going on until it’s too late. What’s really sad is these abusive people get sent to prison for a number of years and then get let out, what the hell is happening to our laws that allow these psychotic abusers to serve a few numbers and if their lucky they may get out early for being good.

    A case that has sickened me even more was the three year old girl that was tortured not only by the Mothers boyfriend but also by a friend and cousin and not only the Mother but other family members and friends knew that this little innocent child was being physically abused in such a sadistic manner and they did nothing to stop it. What’s awful is the Mother allowing her own daughter to suffer such a horrific journey in life and choosing to go out and party with friends rather than protecting this innocent little girl. This and any other child abuse story is so heart wrenching that it makes my blood boil knowing that the main culprit, the Mothers boyfriend only got 17 years in prison for the pain and torture that he inflicted on this little girl….”Where the hell is the justice?” The Mother, the boyfriend as well as the others involved in this abuse are sadistic, evil people and they should have gotten life with no parole at all!!!!! The people that stood by, knowing what was happening and did nothing should have also been sentenced as in my opinion their just as much to blame as the useless Mothers in these sorts of cases. I really do hope that these people get their just desserts in prison, I just don’t know why there are laws out there that protect child abusers from others in prison, why segregate them from other prisoners. I really hope that someone in prison will inflict as much pain on these sadistic, evil, people the way they inflicted pain on innocent little children!!! The laws need to change and for the likes of me I don’t know where the Judges head was in the case of the boyfriend only getting 17 years for the callous and malicious abuse on the little 3 year old girl!!!
