Denver police have arrested a woman and her boyfriend in the death of a toddler who they said died in a case of child abuse.

Police say officers went to a hospital late Friday on a report of a burned child. Doctors pronounced 2-year-old Elijah Archuleta dead shortly after officers arrived.

Police say the child’s 23-year-old mother, Isela Reyes-Talamantes, and her 24-year-old boyfriend, John Vigil, are being held for investigation of first-degree murder.

Coroner’s officials have not yet released a cause of death, pending an autopsy.
