    Two-year-old Mason Hunt was "terrorized during the last two days of his life," Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said Friday announcing the arrests of the boy's mother and her boyfriend on third-degree murder, aggravated assault and related offenses...

    We believe both played an active role in the horrific death of this boy," Whelan said at a press conference, noting that as many as 120 contusions were found on Mason Hunt's body

    Trial set for Glenolden couple accused of killing toddler

    http://www.delcotimes.com/general-ne...illing-toddler

    The trial of a Glenolden couple accused of killing 2-year-old Mason Hunt in February 2015 is scheduled to begin this morning before Common Pleas Court Judge James Nilon.

    Shannon Matthews, 30, of Chester, and Daniel Grafton, 31, of Nether Providence, each face charges of third-degree murder, conspiracy to third-degree murder, endangering the welfare of children, involuntary manslaughter, and aggravated and simple assault. Grafton is also charged with reckless endangerment. Both defendants are being held without bail at the county prison in Concord.

    Galantino offered both defendants a plea deal of 12 to 24 years for third-degree murder last week, but those offers were rejected. Nilon said Matthews and Grafton could each face 41 to 82 years if convicted on all counts and sentenced consecutively.

    McDonald, D’Alonzo and Assistant District Attorney Ryan Grace selected a panel of jurors Thursday who were told to report to the courthouse this morning for the beginning of trial.

    Witness: Accused mom ‘hated’ slain toddler

    http://www.delcotimes.com/general-ne...-slain-toddler

    A Norwood woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old son allegedly told her employer’s client that she “hated” her child and wanted to give him away.

    “She said that she hated her Suboxone baby,” according to a patient of the family practice located under Shannon Matthew’s apartment at 425 Chester Pike. “(She said) he was bad, he was a bad boy. There was something wrong with him because of the medication.”

    The patient testified Monday that she went to Sutton’s office about once a month since 2010 with her fiancé. She said Matthews repeatedly told her Mason Hunt was a problem child, especially in the few visits before his death, and offered to give her the boy at least three times.

    “(Matthews) said that she cannot stand Mason,” according to the patients’ fiancé, who accompanied her to Sutton’s office. “She said that she loved her other kid. She said that she wanted us to take (Mason) from her.”
    Also testifying Monday was the child’s grandmother, Barbara Balthusconis, who said she had seen bruises on Mason Hunt in the months before his death. She described Mason as a happy, normal little boy, but a “bugger” who would sometimes curse and spit.

    Paul Hunt testified that his son was unable to come home from the hospital for six weeks after he was born due to having Subutex, caffeine and nicotine in his system. He said Matthews had been advised she might lose the baby if she stopped taking the Subutex.

    Paul Hunt said he never noticed bruises on his son’s body, but did once see two bruises on his cheeks that looked like he had been pinched by a thumb and two fingers.

    He told Deputy District Attorney Michael Galantino that he received a call at about 4 a.m. Jan. 5, 2015, indicating his son had suffered an eye injury. Paul Hunt said Matthews told him Grafton had poured seasoned salt into the boy’s eyes.
