The monster who abused 4-year-old Myls Dobson pleaded guilty to murder Thursday as prosecutors revealed that the doomed tot had likely been dead for 24 hours before she even called 911.

The chilling new detail was disclosed as Kryzie King pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, several counts of assault and related charges for burning, beating and starving the little boy, the son of a male acquaintance.

In return, King was given a sentence of 22 years-to-life by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Robert Stolz.

King, 29, hanged her head as she admitted to depraved acts against little Myls.

“I can’t,” she sobbed as she left. “I can’t.”

Assistant District Attorney Nicole Blumberg described an iron-clad case against King, who took over care of Myls when his father Okee Wade dropped him off in mid-December 2013.

Wade never returned, and ended up behind bars for a bank scheme rap while King kept Myls in locked up in a chamber of horrors — her apartment in a luxury high rise building on W. 48th St. in Hell’s Kitchen.

“In order to punish him (she) bound Myls Dobson and gagged him,” Blumberg said.

King also put him “out on the balcony in her apartment in the freezing cold during the Polar Vortex wearing just a short sleeved T-shirt and his underwear,” Blumberg added.

Investigators said Myls, who was covered in burns and bruises, had not eaten for weeks.

Prosecutors revealed King did not even both to call for help until Jan. 8, 2014, long after the boy was dead.

She was alone with the dead child in her doorman building home for at least a day.

“The medical examiners determined that although the defendant called the police on the morning of January 8, at approximately 10:50 in the morning, it’s likely Myls Dobson died either on the very, very late evening of January 6, 2014 or the early morning hours of January 7, 2014,” Blumberg said.

“No person would do something like that to a child,” said his great-aunt Linda Dobson, 52.

She referred to King as “a monster” and said the death of 6-year-old Zymere Perkins in Harlem this past Monday was an eerie reminder of the horror Myls had endured.

“I saw that on TV and I immediately started crying,” Linda Dobson said. “It’s the same thing.”

King will be sentenced on Oct. 21.

Ashlee Dobson was too distraught to talk. Her mother, Faye Dobson, refuted the idea the plea could bring closure or satisfaction.

“The case is what it is,” she said. “The system is the system.”
