A 13-month-old girl was beaten to death and her twin brother pounded within an inch of his life inside their Queens apartment — just two days after a house call by city child welfare workers, sources said Tuesday.
The horrific scene in the basement residence emerged Wednesday evening after their troubled mother, quickly grabbed for questioning by police, dialed 911 for help that came too late for badly-battered toddler Elaina Torabi.
Her mother Tina Torabi offered no explanation for the gruesome injuries to her daughter and son as detectives from the 111th Precinct grilled her for details in the assaults on the innocent twins. Neighbors watched as a weeping Torabi, who allegedly has a history of drug use, collapsed to the sidewalk while first responders loaded her kids into waiting ambulances.
Torabi was charged with felony assault on the surviving boy late Thursday night, a source said. Police were awaiting the results of an autopsy on the girl before pressing further charges. She had not made any statements to police, the source said.
