LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against a North Las Vegas couple charged in the death of a little boy.  

The statement was made Tuesday as Chad Newman and his girlfriend, Haydee Razo, each face murder, child abuse and conspiracy charges.

Two-year-old Jackson James Newman suffered fatal blunt force injuries and was dead by the time he arrived at the University Medical Center on February 5th.  

The autopsy revealed bruises, head injuries, and even meth in Jackson's bloodstream. The boy's death was ruled as a homicide.
