A woman and her boyfriend have been charged with murdering her 8-year-old son after violently abusing him for several days.
According to reports from the officers, 30-year-old Leslie Curtis, and her boyfriend, Codie McCrory, 29 have been charged with killing Leslie’s 8-year-old son, Delmor Best-Curtis.
Irving Police officer reported that "There are evil people in this world."
"And this is some of the side effects of them being around children of what happens."
Friday evening, Irving police officers received a call from the Magnuson Hotel off Highway 183 where they found 8-year-old Delmor unresponsive laying on the bed with noticeable injuries.
Reeves said, "It’s pretty bad. From bite marks to burn marks to fingernail marks, you can tell he was choked before because there were fingernail marks around the neck."
"Some of them are so graphic, it’s kind of disgusting to even talk about them."
According to the affidavit, the little boy "had blood on his head, facial swelling, and a broken left arm."
Soon after 30 minutes, Delmor was declared dead at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. The medical examiner cleared that he died due to blunt force trauma.
Police say the little boy lived with his mother, Leslie, and her boyfriend, Codie, at the hotel since last November.
Curtis told police the abuse happened over the last ten days and claimed McCrory beat her, too.
The affidavit says "Curtis had a black right eye and significant bruising to the left side of her face… Curtis had seen the defendant kick the victim in the head on more than one occasion." She also says McCrory would bite her and her son.
Curtis and McCrory are charged with capital murder.
