Mathew !8: 1-4 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Why would anyone shoot a child, let alone their own child. Why didn't this "father" shoot himself in the head first. Looks like the Quebec judge made a mistake. In Texas this monster will get the punishment he so richly deserves, but that won't bring back Deyan. I am utterly sickened by this news.
Montreal family’s custody battle takes deadly turn
This picture of Danyela Perisic, 12, and her brother, Deyan, 10, was taken when they were in Montreal. Danyela was shot eight times allegedly by her father, with whom the two were living in Texas. Deyan died in hospital from his gunshot wounds

When Danyela and Deyan Perisic testified during their parents’ custody dispute in Quebec Superior Court last April, they made it clear they wanted to stay with their mother in Montreal. “They did not want to go back to Texas,” Justice Hélène Lebel noted in her ruling. The children, then 11 and 9, had spent virtually their entire lives in Montreal. Their mother had returned with them to Canada last January after a four-month attempt at reconciliation with her estranged husband, Predrag Perisic, who had moved to Texas in 2007 seeking work. But Justice Lebel dismissed the children’s concerns. She agreed with Mr. Perisic’s contention that under international law their “habitual residence” was Texas, where they had lived a total of 137 days, and they should be returned there to let the courts determine their fate.
They were uprooted from school — Danyela’s Grade Six graduation dress went unworn — and sent to live with their father.
“They do not wish to go back so they will certainly be perturbed,” Justice Lebel wrote. “However, these children are intelligent and capable of coping. They are not being returned to a place where they will be in danger.”
Late Monday afternoon, law enforcement officers executing a warrant for Mr. Perisic’s arrest arrived at a secluded lake house in Coldspring, Texas, where he was in hiding with his son and daughter. After clearing the ground floor, they had begun moving upstairs when they heard gunshots coming from the back of the house.
Deyan Perisic, 10, was taken by ambulance to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His sister Danyela, 12, had been shot eight times and was airlifted to a Houston hospital, where her condition is listed as stable. Their father is in custody, charged with murder.
Mary Quinn, the Houston attorney for the children’s mother, Vera Vucerakovich, said there were plenty of warning signs that Mr. Perisic was dangerous. “If you talk to my client, she all along has believed that this man was capable of violence,” Ms. Quinn said in an interview. “That was part of the reason that they weren’t living together.”
