Irving mother and boyfriend arrested in the murder of her 8-year-old boy

The Irving Police Department has arrested a 30-year-old woman and her 29-year-old boyfriend in the death of her 8-year-old son.

Last Friday, January 8th, the Irving Fire Department responded to the Magnuson Hotel, an extended stay hotel located on the service road of Highway 183 near N. O’Connor Road, for an unconscious person call. Officers and paramedics found an unresponsive 8-year-old male child on the bed inside the hotel room. Numerous injuries to the child were observed when officers first arrived on the scene.

Life-saving measures were immediately started and continued as the child was taken to Children’s Dallas. Unfortunately, the child was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

Irving police say the investigation is still in its early stages, but evidence suggests the child’s mother and her boyfriend had been “violently abusing” the child for the past week and a half.

The woman and her boyfriend were arrested and both charged with Capital Murder in the death of the boy. Police say they have been dating for a year.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Irving Police Department at 972-273-1010.
