CLEVELAND -- Close to 800 pages of records at Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court paint a chilling portrait of the life Camilia Terry led growing up in Cleveland.
Terry, 20, stands accused of killing her 3-year-old son Emilliano.
The records show violence and neglect have been a part of Camilia Terry's life since childhood.
The documents indicate that Camilia's mother would choke her children and sometimes deny them food.
They label the mother's alcohol problem as "severe" and say her boyfriend once forced a young Camilia to perform a sex act on him.
When Camilia told her mother, records say, "the mother did not believe the child."
In 2007, the documents say Camilia Terry "attempted suicide" by taking pills.
A week later, she was to be released from the hospital, but had no one related to her who would help.
The records say there were "no appropriate relatives willing to provide care" for her.
