MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Four-year-old boy who was allegedly the victim of child abuse died Saturday evening at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

McNariy County Sheriff Guy Buck confirmed the child’s death to our sister station, WBBJ-TV in Jackson, Tennessee.

On Friday, WBBJ-TV reported the boy’s father and his girlfriend were both charged with aggravated child abuse.

Those charges will now likely be upgraded.

    Each week,it seems, we have a death of a child in this area,these people should be executed, this child
    Had a horrible life for four years, where was mom, could mom not afford to take care of this child, did she
    Have custody taken away from her, she is just as guilty, all of them make me sick, pos, a waste of space and air.
    He is better off now but what he endured before he died, how could u treat a little child so badly. I hope all
    Rot in jail and be treated,beaten and punished the way they did this child.

      The mother was to pick up her son next week. The little boy was spending the summer with his daddy.
      Don’t jump to conclusions.

    What I want to know is why are just giving the father four years? He in my mind is more guilty than she is, it is or was his child, he knew it was going on and should have saved his own flesh and blood. Both of them should go to the chair.
