A Texas couple is facing charges in connection with a despicable crime they had committed in a San Antonio hotel room in late July.

Daniel Garcia and Nickolle Aguilar are awaiting extradition back to Texas after fleeing the country so they could be charged each with one count of child abuse resulting in death.

Police said that on July 25, and while the couple and their children stayed at a San Antonio hotel, Garcia brutally beat his 5-year-old stepson Domenic Aguilar-Acevedo and slammed his head against a wall before the child’s mom’s eyes.
