Santa Ana Couple Arrested On Suspicion Of Murdering Boy

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Ana mother and her boyfriend have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the woman's 4-year-old boy died.

Police Sgt. Tony Miranda says the boy appeared to have been beaten. His mother, 24-year-old Gabriela Mariana Morales, and her live-in boyfriend, 37-year-old Alberto Guzman, were being held on $1 million bail.

Police say officers went to the couple's apartment Friday and found the boy in full cardiac arrest, with bruises and head trauma.

The boy's 9-year-old brother and 7-year-old sister were home at the time and may have witnessed the beating.

They have been placed in protective custody.
