Tucson mother, boyfriend accused of child abuse

TUCSON, Ariz. — The mother of a 4-year-old boy and her boyfriend have been
arrested on suspicion of child abuse in Tucson.

Tucson police said Friday that 26-year-old Judy Minley and 27-year-old James
Robinson each are held on $500,000 bail.

They say Tucson Fire Department paramedics called to a report of a
near-drowning Thursday morning instead reported finding a young boy who had been
severely abused.

Paramedics were able to revive the child, but they say he was covered in
bruises. He was taken to a hospital trauma center and remains in critical
condition.

Doctors determined the bruises were the result of “non-accidental trauma.”

During a subsequent investigation, police say Minley and Robinson allegedly
disciplined the boy over several hours Wednesday and put him to bed. He was
found unresponsive Thursday morning.
