LAKELAND, Fla. - A central Florida mother and her boyfriend face child abuse charges after her 15-month-old son died.
Deputies say Mitchell Peters died Aug. 25.
Arrest reports indicated Reyes and Meadows made conflicting and changing statements as investigators tried to learn what happened to the boy.
Records show Mitchell was covered in vomit when he was found unresponsive around 5:30 p.m. The medical examiner said there were contusions above his left eye, on his forehead and on top of his head, causing internal bleeding and brain swelling. Cuts on his lips were consistent with being hit.
Meadows isn't the boy's father.
