Couple Indicted In Toddler's Death

A mother and her boyfriend have been indicted in her toddler's death.

29-year-old Steven Foreman and 32-year-old Denise Garcia are charged with murder and felony child abuse in the death of two-year-old Da'Jon Roundtree. The little boy was found dead in the couple's home in Grimesland in July, after they had left the state. The grand jury indicted the suspects Monday.

The two were brought back to Pitt County after going to authorities in Caroline County, VA to report the death of the toddler. Deputies found the boy wrapped in a blanket in the couple's Grimesland trailer.

An autopsy says Da'Jon died from a non-accidental head injury that happened July 3. The Medical Examiner says the child died the next morning. Foreman and Garcia reported the death on July 6.

Both suspects remain behind bars.

    "anonymous" regardless if they are "good peopls" or not, THEY KILLED A CHILD. there is NOTHING that makes that right!!! i work in a child care setting and see today's children all the time. a child is a precious gift and should be seen as such. there is no situation so bad to warrant killing a child. these two don't deserve to die, death is too good for them, they need to suffer for what they have done.

    This is a crying shame. I will never understand how someone can harm an innocent child or animal for that matter. These two deserve the death penalty.

    to big al...i totally agree, I'm not socialistic by any means, but i think that it would be great if people had to apply and qualify to have children. Stipulations like having a brain, criminal records, DRUG TESTS, financial means to support children, and names of the other 50 children they get checks for!!! I feel so sorry for the children in these cases!!

    I totally agree with you! I cannot have children and this just breaks my heart and makes me so mad when I see stuff like this happening everyday! I would be able to raise a child and be very loving and be a great mom to any child that needed it! This just brings me to tears.....

    I hope the two never get to see the light of day ever again.

    If you do not want a child do not lie down and make one. If you have one and do not want it after birth give it up for adoption. NO need to kill it or neglect it. When these two are put away in prison there is a special place they will be . After that Hell is next . What a waste of precious life. These 2 should have taken an IQ test and then if they qualify they could have a child! These 2 are the very reasons some parents should have used birth control! These 2 are the poster children for condoms!
