A Texas father has admitted to killing his 2-year-old son during a potty training on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
21-year-old Antonio Devonte Hicks Sr. transported the unconscious child to Houston Northwest Emergency Room where doctors noticed little Antonio was likely being abused.
“Emergency Room staff immediately observed multiple injuries, recent and healing, not consistent with the father’s story about how his son was injured,” police said. After a thorough questioning, the child’s parents admitted he was abused to death.
“Both admitted that Hicks, Sr. had lost his temper with the child during potty training and struck the child multiple times, causing him to become unresponsive.”
