On Tuesday, according to KHOU-TV, the medical examiner’s office concluded that the 8-year-old victim’s death was a homicide from blunt-force injuries.
The mother’s boyfriend, 31-year-old Brian Coulter, stands accused of killing the boy in 2020, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. The mother, 35-year-old Gloria Williams, has been charged with injury to a child by omission and tampering with evidence.
KHOU reports that Coulter’s bond was set at $1 million on Wednesday and he is reportedly in custody at a mental health facility. KHOU says if he is bonded out, Coulter would be forbidden to contact the children or Williams. Additionally, he would be kept under 24-hour curfew with a GPS monitor without the ability to leave Harris County.
Williams was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.
