FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A 32-year-old Fresno man has been charged
with murder for allegedly beating to death his girlfriend's
Seth Ireland died in the hospital Tuesday morning, eight days
after police say LeBaron Vaughn repeatedly punched, kicked and
stomped on the boy.
Investigators say the boy's mother - 40-year-old Rena Ireland -
watched while Vaughn beat her son.
The Fresno County Sheriff's Office says Ireland and Vaughn tried
to give up the boy and his 7-year-old half-brother the day after
Christmas by dropping them off at the Fresno County Jail.
