RICHMOND HILL, Queens — The grandparents of a 3-year-old Queens boy have been charged nearly one year after the child’s death, police said.
Sita Parsad-Moore, 42, and Vincent Moore, 40, face several charges, including reckless endangerment and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17, police said late Tuesday.
Parasad-Moore was charged also with manslaughter.
Weeks earlier, the death of their grandson Romeo Lewis, 3, was ruled to be a homicide by a medical examiner.
Lewis was first hospitalized on July 28, 2016, with visible bruising and trauma about his body, police said.
Officers were contacted that day at about 8 p.m. for possible child abuse. Lewis was in the custody of his grandmother and step-grandfather when he was injured, according to police. The child’s brother and sister were also home at the time.
He died in the hospital days later on Aug. 2.
