Police believe Staci Lynn Barbosa and Jonathan Edward Vandergriff brutally raped their one-month-old son.
UPDATE: the Mohave County Attorney's Office will not seek the death penalty for alleged baby-rapers. Click here for details.

A Bullhead City couple was arrested yesterday after their 1-month-old baby died as a result of what police are calling a "brutal sexual assault."

Bullhead City police spokeswoman Emily Montague tells New Times police believe the baby was "raped" by his parents, 19-year-old Staci Lynn Barbosa and 23-year-old Jonathan Edward Vandergriff.

Montague -- for good reason -- wouldn't go into detail about the sexual attack but says authorities believe both Barbosa and Vandergriff were involved in raping their one-month-old son.

According to police, at 11:20 a.m. yesterday, police were called to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center's Emergency Room where a baby was "fighting for his life."

Police say they saw bruises and sores all over the baby's body and his eyes were red and swollen shut.

Doctors then told police the baby had several broken ribs, a broken femur, was malnourished, dehydrated, and showed signs of sexual abuse and shaken baby syndrome.

The baby was airlifted to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas -- the closest hospital with a trauma center, according to Montague -- and Barbosa, who brought the one-month-old to the hospital, was immediately taken into custody.

Doctors were not able to save the baby and he died early this morning.

Vandergriff turned himself into authorities yesterday and police served a search warrant at the house where the couple had been living, which turned up marijuana and other items of "evidentiary value."

Vandergriff and Barbosa were arrested for molestation of a child, child abuse, aggravated assault, and sexual conduct with a minor.

Police say more charges are on the horizon for the two, including murder. Both parents were booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman where Vandergriff is being held on a $500,000 bond and Barbosa's bail was set at $250,000.

If this is not a death penalty case, I don't know what is.  All this baby could do is lay there and take it.  I will, sadly, put this child's name on The Children's Wall of Tears at www.thechildrenswalloftears.or... and I will put the abusers photos on my FACES OF CHILD KILLERS so the world will know what they have done.

I cried when I read this story on fb. I had twins last year and I lost one of my girls when she was 5 months old. Losing a child is heartbreaking, but I can't imagine the cruelty involved that resulted in the death of this baby boy. My stomach turns just thinking about what this child through before he died. How damaged were these parents that they would brutally attack an infant? Whatever sentence they are delt, they will never be safe in or out.

Where's a good prison-murder when you need one? Didn't they used to douse these freaks with gasoline in prison and light them up? How about a nice shank - straight through the eye.

Kill them, they don't deserve to live after this. I hope they go to limbo cause hell isn't good enough for them. That child was an innocent and didn't deserve that bullshit. It's sick the fact that 'people' no they don't even deserve to be called people or humans. they are just things that shouldn't even been born, nothing but a waste of air and flesh. It's sick that they don't die, like their victim, or they only get 20 -30 years in the slammer for injuring or killing a child either death or life in prison till they die, that's what i say. Give the defenseless justice!!!!!!

Kill tnem both slowly. For as long as possible. Do the most horrific most painful most agonizing painever. Have them raped an beatin by people with aids an anyother disease. Have them neld down on grou.d an be brutally beatin an sexually assulted by any and anyone.. How can anyone be aroused or feel happy hurtin a child or baby. Or knowing they are screaming an crying while they just carry on and dont care. If I were president I would pass a law. Anyone that sexually or physically hurts a child or baby, would have same thing done to tjem an thenet tjem bleed to death!!

WHY would they not seek the death penalty in a case like this? Apparently it's just another case of someone getting away with murder and, even worse, the torture and murder of a BABY! That's why the crime rate is so damned high in this country, criminals know they can do whatever they wanty and get off lightly!

I know the subject matter is horrible, but so is the editing. Having a sensational story shouldn't let you get away with repeating entire paragraphs just to fill space.
