A man has been arrested after a Lincoln County woman was arrested in connection with the death of her 2-year-old child.

Khristian Tyler Martzall was arrested Tuesday night in connection with the death of Braxton Danker. Martzall was dating Braxton's mother Judith Cheyann Danker.

Danker, 19, was arrested after Braxton died Sunday when he suffered cardiac arrest from an infection that started as a diaper rash.

Lincoln County officials said the child suffered injuries to his buttocks, broken bones, open wounds and appeared to beaten with an object.

It appears the abuse spanned months, investigators said.

Both Martzall and Danker are facing first degree murder complaints.
