Posted: Updated:
LEVELLAND, Texas -

A Levelland mother and her boyfriend have been indicted on charges of capital murder of their child and abusing his brother.

Samantha Mathis, 25, and boyfriend Robert Garza Jr., 30, took the child to the Levelland Covenant Hospital Emergency Room earlier this month.

Investigators went to the ER and found the two-year-old unresponsive with severe bruising. He later died at the hospital. 

After questioning Mathis, police charged her and Garza with capital murder and injury to a child. 

The boy's four-year-old brother also showed signs of abuse, according to CPS. 

If convicted, Mathis and Garza could face the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility for parole.
