A child abuse situation in Saginaw has now turned deadly. A 3-year-old boy was hospitalized after being beaten by his mother's live-in boyfriend on New Years Day. 

The 26-year-old man was arraigned on child abuse charges on Thursday. He will likely face new charges now that the boy has died. Medical examiners are now working to confirm the young boys cause of death before new charges are filed.
