    TX - Elijah Alonzo, 4, beaten to death, San Antonio, 15 April 2006

    SAN ANTONIO -- A 22-year-old man was charged with capital murder Sunday in connection with the death of his 4-year-old stepson.

    Police said that Jose Benito Contreras told them that his stepson, Elijah Alonso, died after he fell in a bathtub and drowned while bathing.

    But an examination by emergency room doctors and an autopsy showed that the death was no accident.

    From July 2007:


    On April 9, 2006, Elijah and his family celebrated his fourth birthday at a pizzeria and then went to see "Ice Age: The Meltdown" at the movies. Six days later Elijah was dead, beaten so brutally that his pancreas and small intestine were torn.

    The nurse told investigators there was a burn on the back of the boy's left ear. He had bruises on his head and bruises and purplish spots on his face. He had bitten his tongue. And he had old abrasions and scratches and some bruising around his neck.

    The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide and police arrested Elijah's stepfather, Jose Benito "Benny" Contreras, then 22, on a capital murder charge. He is awaiting trial.
    Couldn't find any further MSM, but Texas DOC says Contreras is serving 40 years for murder:
