Amanda Hendrickson, 33, and boyfriend Roderick Buckner, 34, have been arrested in the beating death of her daughter, 5-year-old Heaven Woods, reports WSBTV.

Heaven was discovered unresponsive in her Forsyth County, Georgia home after 911 was called. She later died at a local hospital.

An investigation was immediately opened by the GBI.

“So far what we’ve learned from the autopsy is the death was the result of blunt force trauma to the abdomen and it has been ruled a homicide,” said GBI spokesperson Sherry Lang.

“Multiple injuries were discovered, but those injuries were fresh and new. Some were old injuries that had healed,” Lang said.

Hendrickson and Buckner were arrested and both charged with felony child cruelty. Hendrickson also faces a count of making false statements.

The GBI said Hendrickson has a history with the Department of Family and Children Services in Floyd County.

Investigators said that’s where she lived until early May when she moved to Monroe County and moved in with Buckner.

“So possible long term abuse? It appears that the abuse was not something that had just started,” Lang said.

“I can’t even imagine what would make anybody want to hit anybody, let alone a child,” said city of Forsyth mayor John Howard.

Hendrickson is currently pregnant with her fifth child, reports the AJC.

Both she and Buckner are being held without bond.
