A Barstow mother and stepfather are charged with murder in the death of their 6-year-old son, San Bernardino County Superior Court court documents show.
Police received a call around 5:10 p.m. on Sept. 14 from a home on the 900 block of Carson Street about a boy who wasn’t breathing, the Barstow Police Department said on social media. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the boy had “numerous injuries throughout his body that were considered suspicious and suggestive of trauma,” with other injuries in “various stages of healing,” police said.
The boy was airlifted to Loma Linda Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries, police said.
The boy’s mother, Carolyne Beaver, 35, and stepfather, Quinten Ross, 29, are charged with murder and assault of a child, according to court documents.
“Investigators determined that the child was in the care of both parents when the physical abuse and neglect occurred,” police said. “Although the child sustained injuries over a period of time, she failed to seek medical attention for the injuries.”
