TULSA, OK (KTUL) — King Irish Owens, a 2-year-old boy who was abandoned at a Tulsa hospital with head trauma, has died. Three people have been arrested in connection to his death.

According to police, Dominick Smith dropped the child off at Hillcrest Hospital Monday afternoon and drove off.  Smith told police she gave the child Nyquil the previous night, and the boy had been foaming at the mouth. Reportedly, the child had bruises on its body and a knot on his head that could have been from blunt force trauma.

“He had a knot on his head and some various bruises over his body, some minor bruises, severe brain trauma is what the main injury is and we don’t know how it was caused. Because nobody would tell us anything that made sense,” said Cpl. Mark Kraft of the Tulsa Police Department.

Authorities claim the child's mother Keyshawn Brown, 23, "gave" the child to Dominick Smith and Smith’s boyfriend, Johnny Jones, three weeks ago.

“The mother, Keyshawn Brown, just dropped the baby off with them to watch and had left the baby there for several days and didn’t come back to get him or check on him,” said Kraft.

Police say Smith will now be charged with child abuse homicide; Brown and Jones face child neglect charges.
