A Mobile toddler reportedly suffered broken bones, burns and other injuries during longstanding abuse before he died last week, prosecutors said after the arraignments Tuesday of the 3-year-old boy’s mother and her boyfriend on charges related to his death.
“This was a child that should have been full of life. He should have had the support of his family. He should have had the support of his mother, and instead, the last few weeks of his life, he was apparently tortured and abused and killed,” Keith Blackwood, chief district attorney in Mobile County, told Fox 10 of Tyren Edwards.
“We do know that he suffered over a period of time – chronic abuse, multiple stages of healing for those bruises and fractures and burns,” Blackwood added.
Efforts to reach the district attorney’s office were unsuccessful.
Tyren’s mother, Tatyana Edwards, and Edwards’ boyrfiend, Abraham Hatch, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in a Mobile County courtroom.
Edwards was charged with felony murder in her son’s death while Hatch faces capital murder charges.
Edwards’ bail was set at $150,000 while Hatch was denied bail, according to court records.
Tyren went into full cardiac arrest Aug. 8 at USA Children and Women’s Hospital after being found unresponsive.
The boy died of his injuries, which included severe head trauma, last Wednesday, police said.
An autopsy of the boy showed that he had been abused “over some time,” authorities said.
