Court Moves To Permanently Strip Semeria Greene Of Parental Rights On Remaining Children

Semeria Greene

Detroit, MI – Semeria Greene, 26, was charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse after allegedly stabbing her 8-year-old daughter, Tameria Greene, on December 30, 2012.

Neighbors contacted authorities early the following morning. The girl was found by police in the family’s apartment unresponsive with multiple wounds and bruises. She was pronounced dead at the hospital and her mother was taken into custody. Greene’s remaining four sons were turned over to Child Protective Services (CPS).

According to the Daily Mail, Michigan Child Protective Services tried for nearly two years to remove the children from Greene’s care. Allegations of abuse resurfaced back in October 2012, but officials allowed Tameria and her other siblings to remain in the home, regardless of the presence of bruises and bite marks.

Referee Richard Smart oversaw the case and refuse to remove the children due to a failure in part of the social workers to file an emergency motion.

Today, the Wayne County Circuit court began the process of terminating all parental rights of Greene on her four surviving children, ages one to seven. Referee Katherine Allen authorized a petition by the state Attorney General’s Office on behalf of the Department of Service, permanently revoking said rights. Relatives were given an opportunity to object to the petition.

Jovan Mull, father of two of the four remaining children, will also be limited to one supervised visit per week.

The Detroit News reports that a fund to help with funeral costs and Tameria’s four brothers has been set up at Chase Bank, under the name “In Loving Memory of Tameria Greene.”

    OMG! If you abuse an animal they will take it from you. If you abuse a child they will take the child, then give it back to you to torture and kill. Unreal!

    First of all I would fired Richard Smart for not doing his job. All the evidance and he did not do what he was paid to do. FIRE HIM! What was he thinking? These kids were emotionaly and physicaly abused and he did nothing. FIRE HIS BUTT! I'm more pissed off in what he did not do for these kids protection. this child would not been dead if he would of stepped up and protected her and her siblings. Thank God for katherine Allen for taking over, and getting those remaining kids out of there. Too late for one, but she is better off now and R.I.P.
