Timberlake and Esther initially claimed that the deceased fell down a flight of stairs back in 2014. The couple is said to have given the boy pain medication and had him go to bed.

It was not until he struggled to breathe that his parents called the paramedics.

Later, Esther informed the police that Timberlake had punched the minor in the stomach and had thrown him against a wall.

An autopsy report showed that the boy died “as a result of severe blunt force such as punching or stamping or similar”, which was not consistent with a fall.

During pre-trial discussions, it was revealed that the accused had been diagnosed with psychosis and schizophrenia.

He will be sentenced on September 29.
