HINDS COUNTY - JACKSON -

A one-year-old Jackson child has been beaten to death, and the Hinds County Coroner says it's being investigated as a homicide.

Coroner Sharon Grisham Stewart says the child's name is Tyree McDonald. She tells us last night at 9:30, the boy's mother and his mother's boyfriend called 911 about their injured toddler. An ambulance took the child to UMC. The coroner says he arrived at the hospital unresponsive due to head trauma.

A Friday autopsy determined the child had skull fractures from blunt force head trauma. The coroner says the injuries were so severe the child could not have lived long.
