A 2-year-old girl was pronounced dead on Monday after being beaten with a video game controller by her mother's boyfriend. The girl's mother, Neida Baez, overheard the beating from another room but did nothing until her boyfriend told her that the child was unconscious. The boyfriend, Harve Johnson, has been charged with homicide, assault, and reckless endangerment (the mother has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child). [AP via Reformer]
