Police say a two-month-old child is dead, a victim of domestic violence.

Jaquirion Dancer, just 2 months old, was the victim of a brutal beating that police say ultimately killed him.

Before 8 a.m. Wednesday, police were called to the home for a domestic violence situation.

The baby was reportedly being held in mom's arms when the suspect started hitting the mom and the boy.

Jaquirion was so badly hurt during the beating, he was taken to a hospital. Later that night, Jaquirion died from his injuries.

"We do have a suspect in custody for that. It is going to be reviewed at the district attorney's office in the next coming days," Assistant Chief Steve Caballero said.

21-year-old Kenta Evans of Milwaukee is now charged in connection with the death of 2-month-old Jaquerrion Dancer.

According to the criminal complaint, the infant was admitted to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in respiratory failure on Wednesday, June 5. Doctors diagnosed the baby with skull fractures, hemorrhaging and other brain injuries.

When investigators spoke with Jaquerrion’s mother, Jessica McNeal, she indicated on that Wednesday morning, Evans came over the see the baby. The complaint indicates once inside McNeal’s residence, “the defendant quickly switched from wanting to see (Jaquerrion) to accusing (McNeal) of having other men in the house.” Apparently, Evans took McNeal’s cell phone “and smashed it against the wall.” The complaint says at some point, McNeal picked up Jaquerrion and backed away from Evans. After she sat down on a mattress, the complaint says Evans “started punching (McNeal) repeatedly with closed fists, all while (McNeal) was continuing to hold (Jaquerrion).”

The complaint says McNeal’s sister took Jaquerrion from the residence — and drove the infant to the hospital. McNeal mentioned calling police — and that is when Evans apparently fled the residence.

Police later went to the home of Evans’ mother — and “located the defendant hiding in a closet.” He was arrested.

Once at Children’s Hospital, doctors noted the baby had “swelling of the scalp.” The child died from his injuries shortly before 9 p.m. later that same day. After an autopsy, the medical examiner indicated the preliminary manner of death was ruled a homicide.

When police interviewed Evans on Thursday, June 6, He “admitted to being involved in an altercation” with Jessica McNeal. The complaint says during the altercation, “the defendant attempted to take (Jaquerrion) away from (McNeal).” He apparently “tried to pulled (McNeal’s) arms off of (Jaquerrion), became frustrated, and began punching (McNeal) repeatedly. The defendant believed he struck (Jaquerrion) multiple times with a closed fist.” When Evans saw the injuries to Jaquerrion’s head, he “admitted he caused the injuries by punching (Jaquerrion).”

A Wisconsin mother is mourning the loss of her 2-month-old son, who was born premature, after police said he died during a domestic violence dispute.

Police said Jaquirion Dancer was in his mother's arms when the beating began.

According to WISN-TV, Jaquirion was taken to the hospital but died a few hours later.

"You know, this is her little boy who was born not long ago, a preemie who was fighting and doing well, and for her this is a huge tragedy," said Rev. Dan Quakkelaar, a pastor, who met with the mother to offer comfort and support. "You can tell from the picture that he was a beautiful boy and full of life, and it's hard to deal with when a life like that is lost and so tragically and so unnecessarily."
