Tragic Child Sexual Abuse
After the police began investigating the toddler’s death, officers realized this wasn’t a neglect case. Preliminary forensic examination showed the child died from brutal blunt force trauma to the head. This trauma did not happen from a fall. Now, police allege that the mother along with her boyfriend sexually abused the toddler along with another child in the home. The boyfriend’s charges are with murder and other counts including aggravated sexual battery, inanimate sexual penetration, and possession of child pornography. The child’s mother’s charges are forcible sodomy and production of child pornography involving a child younger than 15. The additional sex crime charges against the couple occurred after police seized numerous electronic devices during the investigation.
