A two-year-old child is dead and police say his aunt and her boyfriend are responsible.
Nereida Allen and Joshua Peacher are charged with murder, assault, and criminal abuse for allegedly beating toddler Christopher Allen because he would not stop crying.
The couple had been watching the child for his mother Jeanette Allen. Child Services said the child had to be removed from her home because it was not clean enough. Once the house was up to standard little Christopher could be returned.
But that never happened. The baby was rushed to a Louisville Hospital on Wednesday for severe injuries. The next day he was transferred to another hospital where he was place on life support, and later declared brain dead. His mother Jeanatte Allen had to make the decision to remove him from life support. He died shortly after.
