Milwaukee, WI - A Milwaukee couple have been charged for the October 18, death of Jayden Banda, 5. Both Alyssa Marie Banda, 20, and Marcos A. Colin, 23, appeared at a Milwaukee County court on Saturday for Jayden's homicide resulting from neglect and child abuse in the hands of Colin, according to the criminal complaint.
Banda was charged with one felony count for neglecting a child resulting in death. Colin was charged with two felony counts for neglecting a child resulting in death and child abuse, including recklessly causing great bodily harm and one misdemeanor count for bail jumping.
The complaint states, that on October 18, Jayden had stayed home from school due to being sick. Colin spend the day playing football with Jayden on the street. Later that day, both Banda and Colin took Jayden to the St. Francis Hospital for medical treatment for some injuries. Banda told the doctor that Jayden had fallen from the apartment stairs, suffered some bruises and injuries in the fall. Her claim didn't match with the injuries Jayden had suffered, according to doctors. He died at the hospital from the injuries.
Doctors reported to police that Jayden had suffered a blown pupil, a baseball-size bruise to the head, a scrape to the chin and at least 20 bruises to his body, according to the criminal complaint.
Banda told police that Colin was "toughening him up" by jabbing him back handed with boxing gloves. But a doctor claimed, Jayden was punched multiple times with abusive and aggressive force causing severe injuries resulting in his death. 
Both Banda and Colin are facing up to 25 years in prison and $100,000 in fines, if convicted. Cash bond for Banda was set at $10,000 and for Colin at $75,000.
