A man and woman in Ohio are accused of causing the death of a 4-year-old boy, authorities announced.
On May 5, officers in Euclid responded to a residence after receiving a report about the child, who was unresponsive and no longer breathing.
The boy, Musiah Wadud, was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
Cuyahoga County’s Department of Child and Family Services removed three other children from the home and one was hospitalized, the Euclid Police Department said.
According to officials, detectives believed Wadud’s death was suspicious. They immediately launched an investigation and obtained homicide warrants for household members Devin Hall, 29, and 30-year-old Dyneshia Anderson.
The U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force apprehended the pair in Cleveland on May 10 — five days after Wadud’s death.
Police have not revealed the relationship between the victim and the two murder suspects or a possible motive for the alleged crime.
