The police took the boy’s stepfather into custody. He was accused of beating him and abusing him violently at home. The mother was also arrested and charged with child neglect. Both the siblings are safe.
“That child was destined to be killed,” Orlando Police Department Chief Orlando Rolón told the outlet. “That’s how severe the injuries were. That’s how horrific the recollection of the abuse the child shared with us was.”
