Death More than a month after Maliyah Bass' little body was pulled from a Houston bayou, authorities in Texas have arrested the 2-year-old girl's mother and her boyfriend, alleging they killed the child before placing her in a sewage drain.
On Tuesday, Houston police announced that Sahara Ervin, 20, and Travion Thompson, 21, were charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence stemming from their alleged involvement in Maliyah's August death.
Investigators have yet to say how Maliyah was killed, but allege Ervin and Thompson injured the girl in late August.
Once she was dead, Maliyah's body was placed in a storm drain.
On Aug. 23, at about 10:30 a.m., a jogger spotted Maliyah's body floating near Brays Bayou.
