Mom’s boyfriend killed girl, 3, so he could use meth & dumped body in lake

A man has been sentenced to life in prison after he pled guilty to killing his then-girlfriend’s three-year-old daughter and dumping her body in a lake in North Carolina.

Adolphus Kimrey II confessed to killing Mariah Woods in 2017 after he used too much chloroform while trying to get her to sleep so he could use meth.

Mom's boyfriend killed girl

Kimrey, who was Mariah’s mom Kristy’s live-in boyfriend at the time, was the one to call the police to report the child missing weeks before her body was found.

Kristy had told police she put Mariah to bed on November 26 and the child was missing the next day, WECT reported.

In the following days, Kristy passed lie-detection tests, but Kimrey reportedly failed.

Then, on December 1, Kimrey told the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office he tried hiding Mariah’s death and had thrown her body off of a bridge.

Divers recovered the body about 18 feet underwater the next day.

Mariah’s body was wrapped in a trash bag and had been concealed in a couch cushion cover with a large piece of concrete.

A forensic pathologist later determined she died from chloroform toxicity. Prosecutors claimed Kimrey used the toxin while trying to get the child to go to sleep.

District Attorney Ernie Lee said Kimrey made the chloroform from bleach and nail olish remover.

He also said Kimrie told two fellow inmates that he gave Maria too much because he wanted her to go to sleep while he did drugs.

Kimrey faced the death penalty if convicted, and cut a deal to avoid it, according to the Onslow County Superior Court Clerk.

“My client accepts full responsibility,” said Kimrey’s lawyer, Walter Paramore.

“He’s wept about it. He has expressed remorse. He cared for the child. He did not mean to kill the child.”

The lawyer added that at the time of Mariah’s death, Kimrey was “consumed and dominated by need for drugs.”

Mariah’s mom Kristy was in court on Monday and said her daughter “had a smile and a laugh that could brighten anyone’s day.”
