LAS VEGAS, NV (NV) - A North Las Vegas father and his girlfriend are accused of killing the man's two-year-old son.

Chad Newman and Haydee Razo were arrested earlier this month for the February death of Newman's son.  Police responded to the man's trailer near Las Vegas Boulevard and Pecos and found the boy unresponsive with bruises on his face and head. Emergency responders worked on the boy before taking him to University Medical Center, but in spite of their best efforts the boy passes away.

 Doctors say the child was extremely thin, and suffered from one of the worst cases of malnutrition they'd ever seen.  

The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled Jackson's death homicide by blunt force injury and neglect. Newman and Razo now face multiple charges, including murder and child abuse. Their next court date is set for Wednesday.
