A one year old Oklahoma girl who arrived at the hospital in critical condition after her mother’s boyfriend sexually abused her has died.
Cody Alan Johnson was arrested on Sunday initially on charges including child physical abuse and child sexual abuse but will now face charges of child abuse murder.
According to hospital officials, the little girl on December 5 arrived at the hospital unresponsive and in cardiac arrest.
Police reported that the toddler had “numerous visible facial contusions and bruising and bleeding coming from both the child’s vagina and rectum”.
Authorities said that girl was left in the care of Johnson while her mother was at work. Johnson claimed that the toddler “slipped on her pajamas and fell on a toy”.
