ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (KWQC) - A Rock Island woman and her boyfriend are facing a first-degree murder charge after police say her four-month-old son died from blunt-force trauma to the skull.

Tanda M. Allee, 23, and Mateo D. Williams, 20, are both being held in the Rock Island County Jail on a $2 million bond, Rock Island police said in a media release early Saturday.

Police responded at 9:10 a.m. Tuesday to the 400 block of 12th Avenue for an unresponsive infant.

The infant, identified as Elias S. Austin, was pronounced dead at the scene. Foul play was suspected after the discovery of multiple fractures throughout the child's body, Rock Island County State's Attorney Dora Villarreal said Saturday.

An autopsy conducted Wednesday in Peoria determined the cause of death was blunt-force trauma to the skull.

The child also suffered multiple skull fractures, bone fractures, and other severe injuries consistent with abuse, according to Villarreal.

Police obtained murder charges against Allee and Williams on Friday, according to the release.

The child’s older sibling has been removed from the home and placed in temporary foster care, Villarreal said. She added that no injuries have been found on the older child at this time, but further examination and medical records are pending.
