Prosecutors are investigating a child abuse death after prosecutors say a 2-year-old Wellston boy with “horrendous” injuries died over the weekend.

Pottawatomie/Lincoln County First Assistant District Attorney Adam Panter said the boy died at an Edmond hospital. The toddler's mother, Judith Cheyann Danker, 19, is now jailed in the Lincoln County jail without bond on a murder complaint. Formal charges have not been filed.

Panter said the mother was arrested Sunday evening after being interviewed by authorities about the boy's death.

The child lived with his mother and her boyfriend in Wellston, Panter said, and the mother was reportedly rushing the child to the closest Emergency Room in Edmond. An ambulance met them en route and transported the child, who died a short time after arrival at the hospital.

“The child had physical injuries all over his body,” Panter said. “It's the worst case of abuse I've seen.”

He called the injuries “horrendous,” and said they included open sores all over the child's body, including some that were gangrenous. The boy also had bruises covering his body, Panter said, and several broken bones.

The death and case remain under investigation, but Panter said the child had to be in pain the last few days of his life.

As part of the ongoing investigation, Panter said this child's death may also have been preventable and they are investigating others for a possible failure to report physical abuse.

There also was reportedly a DHS referral a month ago, but Panter said he still hasn't seen anything on that investigation yet.

So far, Danker has been the only one arrested in the case.
