washingtonpost.com – A brain-dead 2-year-old girl from Brooklyn will remain on life support until her parents resolve their bitter dispute over what to do with her organs. (New York Daily News) On Wednesday, Thaiya Spruill-Smith was shaken so violently by her stepfather, 25-year-old David Adams, during a crying fit that the toddler slipped into a coma the following morning, Gothamist reported. Doctors declared her brain dead on Friday, the same day that Adams was charged with assault after he admitted to investigators “that he had shaken the girl and thrown her onto a bed,” according to the New York Times.
