A teacher in Georgia has been arrested in connection with the 2020 beating death of a two-year-old, according to authorities.

Between Nov. 15 and Nov. 17, 2020, Davis and Kiyon Benton, 32, are accused of beating the child with an unidentified object, which resulted in the child suffering a lacerated liver.

According to the indictment, which was issued on Oct. 17, Davis and Benton failed to “seek immediate medical attention” after the child was injured, WXIA-TV reported.

While the pair were indicted in mid-October, it is unclear why Davis wasn’t arrested until now.

No details were released regarding the relationship of Davis and Benton to the child.
