Mother Charged After Body Found In Box


A Houston-area woman has been charged in the death of her 10-year-old son whose body was found in a cardboard box a year ago.

Tina Louise Madrid, 42, was arrested at her Texas City home Wednesday on a murder charge. A coroner last week ruled the
drowning of her son, Jonathan Singer, a homicide.

Jonathan had cerebral palsy and could not care for himself. Authorities said he was neglected and weighed only about 35 to 40
pounds.

Prosecutors said Jonathan's father, Jeffrey Singer, 46, left the boy alone in a bathtub while he went shopping. The boy drowned. His body was discovered last April in a box in the back of Singer's truck in Spring Branch, an area of west Houston.

Singer was charged with serious bodily injury to a child and is free on $50,000 bond, according to Harris County court records.

It wasn't immediately clear what part prosecutors believe Madrid played in the death. Online jail records do not list an attorney
for Madrid, who was jailed and held under bond set at $50,000.

.......................Singer had parked his truck, where they found the child's body in the truck.

Police said Singer made statements about being responsible for the boy's death, and they arrested him. The child had been dead about five days when his body was found.

Child Protective Services had investigated the boy's welfare in 2010 and found no evidence of abuse or neglect. Child welfare officials doing a second check later were unable to find the family.

Nut, it is heartbreaking to imagine the torment this child endured for 10 years.
