Las Vegas: Accused Of Choking A 6-Year-Old With A Vacuum Cord, Suspected Child Killer Facing New Allegations
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (KLAS) — A Clark County grand jury added two new child abuse charges on a man accused of killing his girlfriend’s father’s 4-year-old son and freezing his body.
Brandon Toseland, 36, arrested by Las Vegas Metro police in February for the murder of Mason Dominguez. Dominguez’s body discovered in a trash bag in a freezer inside Toseland’s northeast valley garage.
Mason’s mother was able to slip messages into her 7-year-old daughter’s shoe, which led to Toseland’s arrest on Feb. 22. In April, a grand jury indicted Toseland on ten counts, including murder, child abuse, kidnapping, and domestic violence.
