7 Year Old Dies From Injuries, Suspect Remains in Custody

NewsChannel 10 has learned that a 7 year old boy in critical condition from an alleged assault by his mother's boyfriend has died.

Police were called to the Lakeview trailer park earlier this month to investigate the child's injuries. It was reported that the child hurt himself while climbing out of the bath tub. But, investigators said the injuries were the result of an assault by the mother's boyfriend.

The suspect, 19 year old Jason Mills, remains in the Randall County Jail facing a charge of Injury to a Child. His charges will remain as such until preliminary autopsy results are obtained.
