DENVER – A 7-year-old Denver boy who died in May was suffering from dehydration and starvation, and had more than two dozen cuts and bruises on his body, a coroner's report said.
The Denver coroner's office released its report Monday on Chandler Grafner, who went into cardiac arrest and died about 45 minutes after being taken to a hospital May 6.
Authorities said the boy weighed only 34 pounds.
Phillips was the legal guardian of the deceased child.
Prosecutors said Phillips and Berry locked him in a closet and intentionally starved him.
