LAS VEGAS: Babysitter, 22, Charged with Murdering 5-year-old boy.


Detectives included a “horrendous account” of abuse captured on surveillance video in the arrest report for a 22-year-old woman facing a murder charge in the death of a 5-year-old boy.

Lauren Courtney was arrested on March 12 on suspicion of child abuse or neglect with substantial bodily harm, according to a report from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

A criminal complaint filed in court has since charged Courtney with first-degree murder and eight counts related to child abuse.
