Mother, Boyfriend Charged In Brooklyn Toddler’s Death

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A Brooklyn woman and her live-in boyfriend have been charged in the beating death of the woman’s young son.

The boyfriend, 31-year-old Reginald Williams, has been charged with second-degree murder, while the toddler’s mother, 27-year-old Teresa Foster, faces charges of criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police responded to a 911 call from 41 Kingston Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant just after 10 p.m. on Friday night. When they arrived, they found two-year-old Aiyden Davis covered in bruises and unresponsive.

The little boy had been left Williams’ care.

A neighbor said he heard the baby crying – and had heard rumors of abuse.

“His friend heard something going on,” the neighbor said. “He was actually hearing, you know, this guy abusing the baby, yelling at him and spanking him and whatnot.”

The medical examiner had ruled the death a homicide, citing blunt impact injuries to the head, torso and extremities as the cause of death. Liver lacerations and internal bleeding were also found.

    Pathetic to read this; a lot of childern get killed by blunt force is sad. A religious person would state that the child is in God’s hand. Blah! Religion is man-made. Don’t be duped by religion. Where was Social Services prior to this?

    We still have the death penalty here in Texas. Send him over here! Send the mother too! She deserves the same punishment for letting someone hurt her child. RIP little one!

    I have a 2 year old little girl and I cannot picture my life without her. This poor baby is now resting in peace, and those 2 disgusting monster’s will pay. May this mother suffer the way Nixmary’s mother did in Rikers.

    This is not spanking! this is beating up a little angel! He beat up a little baby, poor little thing, may he rest in peace, this is where the death penalty is the way to go.

  8. roger says:

    I’m beginning to think maybe people should have their kids on the Moon or on Mars. They should set up a hospital on the Moon with a maternity ward.

    You made a stupid remark.
    It is NOT fine to spank anyone.
    But when someone spanks a two year old to death he deserves life in prison with no parole opportunity.

    It is closer to Crown Heights area not bed stuy

  12. Peronfrom Brooklyn says:

    THIS IS NOT IN BED-STUY. THIS WAS IN CROWN HEIGHTS. AM I RIGHT?

    1. Sally Rogers says:

      No its Bed Sty. Its down by Atlantic. Not towards Empire…… The mother should face charges too, that baby had old bruises that a “mother” had to have noticed. Poor baby. RIP. You’re in a better place now.

  13. John says:

    I hope whoever murdered this child gets very special treatment in Jail from their fellow prisoners.

    The Angels from Heaven will take this child to a better place.
