CONROE, Texas—A man is behind bars after police say he killed his girlfriend’s two year-old son.
Yoandry Motano, 29, has been charged with capital murder.
Conroe police report they found the little boy unconscious in a bathtub at a home on Moss Hill Lane on October 14. The child was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead the next morning.
The cause of the boy’s death has not been released, but investigators say that he did not drown.
Montano was arrested on Thursday at his home and is currently being held without bail. If convicted, he could get the death penalty.
Neighbors say that the child’s mother took her three other children to live with in-laws. They also say that they did not know the family well, since they only moved in a few weeks ago.
