Houston Police said that they arrested 24-year-old Anthony Trakemon Powell, after being accused of killing his 3-year-old son Tristan Powell.
Anthony Powell was also charged in connection of burning his 2-year-old son Cameron Powell. Cameron Powell is at a hospital after suffering first and second-degree burns and bruises.
