Stockton Woman Arrested on Suspicion of Murdering Child

Mavis Allen

Stockton Police have arrested a woman suspected in the death of a 20-month old child.

On August 6, 2017,  police were contacted by St. Joseph’s Hospital regarding a 20-month-old, male Child who was brought in with obvious trauma and was in cardiac arrest. Life saving measures were started and the child was transferred to Oakland Children’s Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. 

Detectives met with the mother, Mavis Allen, 26, and initially booked her on a child neglect charge. An autopsy confirmed the trauma to the child’s head was most likely not caused by an accident. 

The investigation determined that the abuse occurred in a room at the motel located at 550 W Martin Luther King Blvd. On August 11, 2017, the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office refiled the charges as 273 a(a) PC Child abuse resulting in death as well as 12022.95 PC which is an enhancement charge for child abuse which causes death.

Mavis remains in custody at the San Joaquin County Jail.
