Dad, stepmother arrested in connection with Hollywood toddler's death

HOLLYWOOD, FL (WFLX) - Relatives of a 3-year-old child found dead in his Hollywood home have been arrested, according to Hollywood police.

Detectives found Ahziya Osceola's body inside his home last week.

Police say they are charging Analiz Osceola with aggravated manslaughter, child neglect and providing false information to law enforcement under “Caylee's Law”.

They say they have also arrested Nelson Drew Osceola, and charged him with child neglect.

NBC6.com identified them as the stepmother and father of Ahziya.

Police plan to hold a news conference later today and release more information.

According to the Associated Press, the Department of Children and Families released a report Wednesday revealing that someone called the child abuse hotline last year concerned that Ahziya Osceola had bumps and bruises and complained of a sore bottom. He was examined but a doctor couldn't determine whether his bruised rectum was from constipation or sexual abuse.The child lived with his father and stepmother after his mother was arrested for child neglect. A DCF report says the child was found wandering a hotel alone while his mother was passed out.His stepmother checked herself into a psychiatric ward Friday after Osceola's siblings were taken from her home. An investigation continues.

Information from AP supplemented this report.
