Mother and Her Boyfriend Arrested for Murder of 3-Year-Old Daughter

Los Angeles:† A mother and her boyfriend have been arrested in the death of her 3-year-old daughter.

On August 7, 2005, at approximately 10:00 a.m., Los Angeles City paramedics were summoned to a motel in the 1700 block of West Martin Luther King Boulevard in† South Los Angeles.† On arrival they found a three-year-old toddler having a seizure.† The child was taken to California Hospital where she was later pronounced dead, the cause of death unknown.† The police were called when medical personnel at the hospital, noticing several old injuries on the little girlís body, suspected she may have been a victim of physical abuse.

On August 9, 2005, the Los Angeles Coronerís Office ruled the childís death a homicide.† It was determined she had sustained blunt force trauma to the abdomen, multiple previously undetected contusions about the body, and head trauma.

Investigating detectives confirmed the daughter had been in the care of her mother, Monique Givens, and her motherís boyfriend, Casino Gangster Sears (birth name), when she sustained her latest injuries.† On August 9, 2005, both Givens and Sears were arrested for the murder of the 3-year-old.† Sears is being held without bail due to a probation violation.† Givens is being held on $1,000,000 bail and a $26,000 prostitution warrant.

The Abused Child Unit is conducting this investigation.† Anyone with information regarding this murder is asked to contact Juvenile Division Detectives at 213-485-4220.† On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number for the Detective Information Desk at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
