The Harris County Sheriff said late Tuesday that Brian W. Coulter was charged with murder, and that the boy’s mother, Gloria Williams, was charged with injury to a child by omission, as well as tampering with evidence.

“The complainant was 8 years old at the time of his death in 2020,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted. “Coulter is the boyfriend of the murdered child’s mother.”

The Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office said the child, whom officials have not publicly identified, died of homicidal violence and had suffered “multiple blunt force injuries.”

Officials on Sunday also found three children living at the apartment, Gonzalez said earlier this week.

A 15-year-old child who lived there told the sheriff’s department that his brother died a year ago, officials said. The teenager lived at the apartment with his 7- and 10-year-old siblings, and without their parents, he told authorities.

The children received medical attention at a local hospital after the 15-year-old called the sheriff’s department.

Coulter, 31, and Williams, 35, were taken into custody at the Harris County Jail.
