An Indiana teen has been charged with the murder of a four-year-old in Evansville.

Evansville Police say 16-year-old Christian T. Gonzalez of Fort Wayne, Indiana, who was arrested last week in connection to the death of 4-year-old Octavia Aquino, was waived from juvenile court and is now being charged with Murder. They say his 23-year-old girlfriend and the mother of the child, Destiny Rhoades, will also face the charge of Neglect of a Dependent Resulting in Death.

Aquino passed away over the weekend after she was found unresponsive in an apartment on Spring Valley Road late last week. When officers arrived to the apartment, they found the child to be “cold to the touch” and transported her to a hospital. Gonzalez and others were in the apartment while the mother was at work.

The 4-year-old child’s autopsy scheduled for late Monday.

Gonzalez was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on Monday afternoon.
