Little Rock, Arkansas – The death of a little kid and the recent discovery of his body are surrounded by disgusting acts of child abuse, according to court documents.

According to a recently-filed affidavit, Blu Rolland, the Moro, Arkansas, a kid whose body was found buried beneath the floorboards of his home on Friday, Dec. 16, had passed away three months earlier.

The statement continues, “Blu died after his mother’s boyfriend purposefully inserted his finger inside the boy’s mouth and slammed his head into a toilet, drowning him for biting the man.”

According to the affidavit, Blu was buried beneath the house by the boyfriend.

9 September was found to be Blu’s date of death.

Last week would have been his sixth birthday.

After his body was discovered by police on December 16, his 28-year-old mother Ashley Rolland, and her 33-year-old boyfriend Nathan Bridges were both taken into custody.

Following a phone call from Ashley’s parents informing them that Blu was dead inside the house, police allegedly searched the residence.

Lee County sheriff’s officers called special agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division to the residence at 10:45 p.m. that same evening.

The agents were also called to look into Taylor Rolland, Blu’s younger sister, who had suffered burns to her scalp and was just six years old.

As “punishment for behavior concerns,” Ashley allegedly told police that Bridges kept her daughter Taylor under extremely hot water.

The small child has significant burns, according to medical personnel at the Forrest City Hospital. For more care, she was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

Charges against Ashley and Bridges include capital murder, battery, mistreatment of a corpse, tampering with physical evidence, endangering the welfare of a juvenile, and abuse of a corpse.

Ashley is detained in St. Francis County, while Bridges is detained in Lee County.

Ashley is also charged with two felonies for allowing child abuse.
