Where was CPS?

This report from Newsday:
A woman was charged with first-degree murder Monday for allegedly hanging her 4-year-old son to death by wrapping a sheet from a bunk bed around his neck, authorities said.

Nicole Harris, 23, is accused of killing Jaquari Dancy on Saturday after becoming angry at him for disobeying her orders to not leave the house when she went to do laundry. She discovered the boy and his 5-year-old brother outside when she returned about 45 minutes later, then beat him with a belt and sent him to his room, prosecutors said.

When he would not stop crying, she wrapped a sheet from the a bunk bed around his neck and hanged him, prosecutors said.

This can't have been the first time that woman attacked those children.

I can tell you where CPS was.... Likely no one had made complaints or contacted CPS about her behaviors and leaving young children at home alone. Neighbors, family, and friends looked away.
