A young baby was beaten to death after being left alone with a 6-year-old violent boy, according to police in Texas.

The Amarillo Police Department said that they have arrested 23-year-old Shynequa Pollard, after leaving 4 children home alone with her 6-year-old son, who had a history of being violent with other children.

Pollard has been charged with murder in connection with the death of 8-month-old Aubrielle Stevens.

She was booked into the Potter County jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, Pollard was watching 4 children under three years old, when she left them home alone with her 6-year-old son.

Pollard knew that her son was violent towards babies, but left him alone with the children.

When she returned to her home located in the 1100 block of South Carolina Street, she found that Stevens was severely beaten.

Stevens was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died.

An autopsy showed that Stevens died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

The 6-year-old boy was not charged due to his age.
