Child beaten by mother’s boyfriend dies of injuries


A 2-year-old boy who had been badly beaten by his mother’s boyfriend died in Athens on Tuesday.

Doctors at the Aglaia Kyriakou Hospital said that the toddler had suffered serious head injuries, while his legs and arms were also hurt.

The boy’s mother, 22, is facing charges of exposing a minor to danger.

Her 23-year-old boyfriend was charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

Both are due to face a magistrate on Wednesday in Corinth, where the attack occurred.

The child’s mother went to the police on Saturday night to inform authorities that she and her son had been attacked by her boyfriend.

She received first-aid treatment while her child was taken to the hospital.

Afterward the 22- and 23-year-old, both of whom are Roma, were arrested.
