Police say bruises show abuse dating back at least two weeks. He is in jail charged with first degree murder and child abuse by injury.

The toddler’s mother, 19-year old Heidi Benjamin was also arrested and is charged with child abuse by injury and permitting child abuse. Detectives say she allowed the abuse to happen, they say she told them she is scared of Boldon.

Police say an 8-month-old also lived in the home and is in DHS custody.
