MILWAUKEE (AP) — Court records show one of the two women arrested in the death of a 7-year-old child in Milwaukee was previously convicted of neglecting a child who died from his injuries.

In the most recent case, police say the boy had numerous injuries when he was brought to the hospital Tuesday and died a short time later. Two women, ages 44 and 47, were arrested in the death. Two men were also arrested for failing to prevent bodily harm.

Court documents show the 44-year-old woman was convicted of fatal child neglect in the 2003 death of a 1-year-old boy. She was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The woman’s sister and teenage daughter were also convicted in the death.
