Davis has been accused of breaking Connor’s jaw and worsening existing brain damage including internal bleeding.
Pittman originally claimed Connor fell from a trampoline.
In October, Davis was watching Connor while Pittman was at work and sent her a photo of her soon eating a snack around 7p.m, according to court records.
That same night, Connor developed breathing problems and was taken to the hospital after Davis tried to administer CPR.
Court records show that due to the injuries of his jaw, “there was no way a child could attempt to eat with such a massive wound to his mouth and face.”

This could suggest the injuries happened after the photo was sent.
Police haven’t discovered how Davis allegedly hit Connor or if he used something to hit him, Crime Online reported.
The couple is currently held in jail without bond.
