When choosing a babysitter for your family, it is often hard to find someone that you can fully depend on and trust. It’s even hard to find someone that your child feels comfortable around, or even your dog. For this South Carolina couple, they owe everything to their black lab and German shepard mix, Killian.
The Jordan family had moved from Charleston, South Carolina where they were in search of a sitter for their 2 month old, since they both had jobs that would take up the day. This is when they hired 22 year old, Alexis Khan.
All seemed well, until about five months later.
The father, Benjamin started to notice that their dog had strange behavior towards the sitter.
During an interview talking about Alexis, he said, “We started to notice that our dog was very defensive toward our son whenever she would come in the door. He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we had to actually physically restrain our dog from going towards her.”
It was after noticing the dog’s strange behavior that they decided to take action.
The couple set up an iphone underneath their couch where they were hooping to catch audio of what was going on. They suspected that Khan was abusing their dog, but when they heard the audio they couldn’t believe it!
It wasn’t their dog getting abused, it was their own child!
They heard Khan repeatedly yelling at their child cursing him out for crying, which followed by what sounded like Khan shaking their child since the baby could no longer cry.
Finn, was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was luckily in good shape, but charges were then pressed after getting in contact with the police.
The Jordan’s spoke out about this incident saying, “To know that five months, I had handed my child to a monster. Not knowing what was going on in my house for that day. Who knows how many children she has abused or how many more she would have had it not been for our dog.”
Khan was sentenced for three years in prison for child abuse.
