Moorhead couple charged with murder of 3-year-old child

In Moorhead, a couple has been charged with the murder of a three-year-old boy, Eastyn Deronjic. Prosecutors say Rosa Garza, 24, and Shiann Erickson, 22, are responsible for the child’s death, which occurred in March.

Investigators reported that Eastyn suffered 28 blunt force injuries while in the couple’s care. Erickson admitted to police that he would try to protect Eastyn by standing between him and Garza, but denied seeing Garza hit the boy in the days leading up to his death.

Both Garza and Erickson now face second-degree murder charges as the case unfolds. This tragic incident has shocked the community and legal proceedings will continue as more details emerge.
