MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee woman and her boyfriend are due back in court a week from Monday in the death of the woman’s five-year-old son.

20-year-old Alyssa Banda is charged with child abuse causing death. 23-year-old Marcus Colin is charged with the same crime, plus reckless child abuse and misdemeanor bail jumping.

Both made initial court appearances in Milwaukee during the weekend.

Five-year-old Jayden Banda died October 19th, after being injured earlier this month. Court officials say the youngster’s body was covered with bruises – and if the boy had survived, one of his legs would have been amputated.

Colin is being held on a $75,000 bond, and Alyssa Banda has a $10,000 bond. At their next court appearance, a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order the two to stand trial.
