The 2006 death of Serenity Brown just got a bit stranger as NY Daily News reports that the child’s mother, Paula Johnson, is alleging that the baby’s father killed the infant, cut her up and fed her to the dog.

According to law enforcement sources and documents, the toddler’s disappearance wasn’t even reported until five years later during a 2011 visit.

“Little Serenity was listening to her mother, Paula Johnson, read a story inside their Canarsie apartment when, according to Johnson, her ex-con dad, Edward (Chuck) Brown, flew into a rage over the child’s laughter”, the article states law enforcement sources said.

“A single punch to the chest left the helpless tot unresponsive, Johnson told investigators.”

The article details the grisley events which then unfolded: Brown took the lifeless baby to the bathtub, filled it with water and used a kitchen knife to carve up the dead child.

Johnson told investigators Brown then fed the girl’s remains to a pit bull, a source said. An anonymous caller last year claimed the crime was covered up when Brown then executed the dog.

The start of the probe was delayed for five years, as investigators only learned about Serenity’s disappearance in October 2011.

Johnson initially claimed Serenity was with her paternal grandmother in Alabama before coming clean about her daughter’s gruesome demise.

The man’s mother doesn’t believe the accusations and blames Johnson.

No one has been charged for the death of Serenity Brown.

Here’s the document’s statements:

Johnson told authorities Brown plucked Serenity from the bed and slammed her down on a couch in the apartment’s single bedroom, leaving the child stunned. He then allegedly punched the tiny tot in the chest. Her body went limp. Johnson said she put her ear to the baby’s chest but didn’t hear anything, so she tried CPR, the sources said.

ACS received an anonymous phone tip last March claiming that “the mother and father got rid of the child by feeding the child to a pit bull. The father then killed the dog,” agency documents show.
