    CA - Dad, stepmom charged in death of Jeremiah McRath, 3, March 2010

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. --
    The stepmother and father of 3-year-old boy who authorities suspect was the victim of child abuse have been charged with murder in his death.

    Jeremiah McRath died at 1:20 a.m. Thursday at UC Davis Medical Center, a hospital spokesman said.

    Dayshawna Nichole Lawrence and Adrian Ramon McRath were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of abuse, but in jailhouse interviews they denied any wrongdoing.

    Lawrence, the boy's stepmother, and Adrian McRath, the father, were charged Friday with one count of murder and one count of assault by means of force to produce great bodily injury, resulting in death.

    ================================

    A three year old Sacramento boy who was critically injured Tuesday night has died, and his father and stepmother will be charged with murder.

    Jeremiah died on Thursday at 1:20 a.m. after he was taken off life support, at UC Davis Medical Center according to Malvola Dupre, the boy's grandmother. He was taken to the Tuesday night with traumatic head injuries after he reportedly fell in the bathroom of a Sacramento apartment, say police.

    Police say Jeremiah's injuries were not accidental. They believe his injuries were caused by Jeremiah's father, Adrian McRath, and his stepmother, Dayshawna Lawrence.

    During an interview with CBS13 on Wednesday Lawrence said she found Jeremiah lying unresponsive on the bathroom floor after she gave him "whoopings".

    She says she was forced to discipline Jeremiah after he urinated on the kitchen floor....

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    hey dumbell, if you admit the father had nothing to do with it, that leaves you.....and your idea of 'disciplining' a 3 year old for urinating on the floor is murder?

    A woman who pleaded no contest to a charge of assault on a child that resulted in the death of her stepson has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

    Dayshawna Lawrence, 23, entered the no contest plea last month in the March 2010 death of 3-year-old Jeremiah McRath. She was sentenced Friday by Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette.

    Jeremiah's father, Adrian McRath, pleaded no contest in December to child endangerment and was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison.
