    AR - Alithia Boyd, 23 mos, dies of head trauma, Flippin, 1 May 2016

    http://www.thv11.com/news/crime/man-...eath/187103192

    Cody Allen, 23, will now face a capital murder charge in connection with the death of two-year-old Alithia Boyd...

    On May 1, police began the investigation into the girl's injuries after they received a call about an unresponsive child at Hillside Apartments in Flippin. Once on scene, they were told the girl fell down a set of stairs. However, authorities said the injuries appeared to be too severe for that explanation...

    The affidavit describing what investigators believe occurred remains under seal and not available for inspection by the press or the public.

    Medical personnel told investigators the little girl's injuries came from "impacting an object"...

    Allen pleads guilty, gets life in prison

    http://www.baxterbulletin.com/story/...son/738038001/

    Mother of murdered toddler lied about injuries, police allege in affidavit

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ase/746240001/

    Once Cody Allen entered a guilty plea to a reduced charge of first-degree murder in the death of two-year-old Alithia Ivory Boyd, the affidavit in his case became public. That affidavit sheds some light on the charges Alithia's mother, Anastasia Weaver, faces.

    Weaver, 22, faces felony charges of manslaughter and permitting child abuse in connection with her daughter's death. She faces a maximum of 30 years in prison if convicted on both felony charges.
    According to the most recent court filings, Weaver is due to go on trial Feb. 14, 2018, on the manslaughter and permitting child abuse charges. However, with Allen's case settled, Weaver's may move forward more quickly.

    That's because Weaver's defense attorney wanted Allen's trial to be held first, according to a letter filed in the case by Circuit Court Judge John Putman.
