The child’s mother worked as Escobar stayed home and played video games, according to KLAS. The mom also said Escobar had previously called and asked her to calm the child because he was frustrated and could not do it.

On April 7, the child was found unresponsive, according to KLAS. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

This week, Escobar was charged with murder in connection to the child’s death. He is being held in jail without bail.
