Belize: Foster parents detained after 4-y-o beaten to death

Police in Belize have detained the foster parents of a four-year-old child after a postmortem examination found that she died from multiple traumas last weekend.  

The deceased, Ayanna Bennett, had been living with her foster family since September this year.

Police Commissioner Chester Williams said both foster parents were charged based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions for aggravated assault.

He added that she was beaten because she was unable or unwilling to identify the colour of a truck.
