A 20-year-old Henderson man was arrested early Monday in connection with the death of a male infant who Henderson police said showed signs of abuse.
Rayshaun T. Coleman, who was dating the 6-week-old baby’s mother, was arrested and charged with murder. The Clark County coroner’s office identified the boy as Tristin Michaels Hilburn. The mother is listed as Christal Hilburn-Gaynor.
Police were called to the home at 1941 Dunnam Street, near Pabco and Sunset roads, shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday. When officers arrived, they found the baby unconscious. The infant was rushed to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he was declared dead. The cause of death has not been determined.
Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said officers had been called to the residence in the past for reports of minor disturbances. None of the calls were related to the abuse of children, he said.
Hilburn-Gaynor’s 5-year-old boy was in the home when officers arrived on Sunday. He has since been placed in the custody of an uncle.
