SAN ANTONIO -- The little girl at the center of a beating investigation has died.
Kayla Garcia was taken to University Hospital with massive head injuries two days ago. She underwent surgery, but she died Wednesday evening.
The girl's mother, 20-year old Melanie Garcia, and her mother's boyfriend, 23-year-old Matthew Carrillo, were arrested on injury to a child charges. They claimed Kayla fell out of a wagon. But doctors who examined Kayla said her injuries were not consistent with that description.
