Cape Town foster mom Priscilla Morris was sentenced to an effective 30 years in prison for murdering 9-month-old foster child Caswell Frans because he cried a lot and was “naughty”. 

In a plea and sentencing agreement confirmed by the Western Cape High Court on Thursday, Morris admitted throwing him to the floor, hitting him, choking him, throwing water at him and pouring water down his mouth to try to revive him when she realised he had stopped moving. 
A fan was fetched and cold air was blown at him too on that fateful day of 17 December 2021, but baby Caswell was dead.
