I feel like I'm going to be put on a watchlist for posting here but...

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
Who Can Kill a Child? (1976) (what was with that year?)
Pumpkinhead (1988) (pretty tame death scene but...SPOILER!!!...the kid comes back in an emotionally draining scene)
SPOILER!!! Pet Sematary (1989)
Sinister (2012)

and lastly, the original Frankenstein (1931). The murder scene you always hear about (they cut it out and it actually made it worse because people's imaginations made it worse), but the horror I feel as the father carries her lifeless body is unmatched by anything I've seen elsewhere. That scene goes on for days.

Hopefully these aren't educational...

*Sorry, most of these have been mentioned, johnny come lately here.

Maximum Overdrive has a couple of kid/young teen kills. Remember the soda machine, and the steamroller? Given that it's a horror comedy, and how much King loves to manipulate his audience, they're pretty funny.

Thanks for these. I guess I also need to add the short film Apaches (1977). :D

Not homicidal, but a child death occurs at the beginning of Don't Look Now (1973)

I wouldn't call it violent. If I recall correctly you see the young girl walking into the water and then it intercuts to the father in the house having a superstition and running out to her and finding her. The whole movie proceeds based on the psychological conflict of the parents having to deal with the loss.
