LEAGUE CITY — The mother of a 2-year-old child found dead in Pasadena in 2012 and her boyfriend were arrested Thursday in League City and charged with murder, police said.

Pasadena police served the warrants early Thursday morning at a home in the 2900 block of Rippling Brook Lane with assistance from League City police and SWAT team members, as well as the Galveston County Precinct 8 Constable’s Office, according to a news release from the Pasadena Police Department.

The 2-year-old child was found dead in the courtyard of a Pasadena apartment complex in November 2012, but it wasn’t until last week that the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office released a report determining the cause of death to be homicide by multiple blunt force trauma, according to Pasadena police.

The Harris County District Attorney’s office then issued warrants for Chad Michael Wisnieski and Christina Chadwick, both 29, police said.

Wisnieski and Chadwick have been charged with murder and are being held in the Harris County Jail.
