WESH 2 reports that a woman has been arrested in Orlando for possibly torturing and killing her 2-year-old son. Victoria Toth was arrested July 18 after her son was found unresponsive in his room. The boy was discovered just before 7 a.m. and the death was ruled a homicide. Toth has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.
The medical examiner determined that the boy died from blunt force trauma to his abdomen, which then caused a hole in his intestines that led to peritonitis. The trauma led directly to the tear in the intestines, and the boy developed a deadly infection.
It was determined the injury happened approximately three days prior to the boy’s death, and he would have survived if he had seen a doctor. The examiner determined that he suffered unnecessarily and was severely neglected, which could give weight to a “torture” case in court.
