Gwinnett County police charged a mom and her boyfriend with the murder of her two-year-old son.
Police said paramedics were called to Steeple Chase apartments in unincorporated Norcross on Dec. 16 by the couple, who said the child was suffering seizures.
However, EMS found 2-year-old Aiden Calvo suffering from serious injuries and noticed signs of neglect and abuse.
"There were injuries at various stages of healing on various parts of his body," said Cpl. Jake Smith. "There was nothing that could be accounted for by a tumble in the yard or something along those lines."
Police arrested the couple that day and charged them with child cruelty.
Their toddler died on Dec. 22 due to his injuries.
"The most serious was a head injury that ultimately contributed to his death," Smith told CBS Atlanta News.
Police then charged the child's mother, Elizabeth Calvo and her boyfriend, Adam Garber, with felony murder. They remain in the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
Authorities said the pair had moved from New York to the Atlanta area three days before they called 911, so there is little information available about them.
"As a parent or a police officer, understanding how someone would behave towards their own children or any children is pretty incomprehensible," said Smith.
