TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson woman and her live-in boyfriend now face
first-degree murder charges in the wake of the death of the woman’s 4-year-old
Police say the boy died Saturday as a result of injuries from a March 20
beating that allegedly lasted an hour.
Police initially arrested 26-year-old Jody Minley and 27-year-old James Dwight
Robinson on child abuse charges.
Fire Department paramedics had called police after observing injuries that
didn’t fit the reported accidental drowning that had been reported.
Sgt. Maria Hawke says police aren’t releasing the dead boy’s name. She says
that is the Tucson Police Department policy for child crime victims.
