A 10-year-old boy has died after being found beaten, burned and bound in Chino Valley Thursday, according to Chino Valley police.

He was then transported to Phoenix Children's Hospital but unfortunately succumbed to his injuries on Monday.

Evidence suggested that the child's injuries were inflicted at the residence, while he was bound and restrained and unable to protect himself or flee.

Police arrested 36-year-old Daniel Terry, and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Julianna Moreno.

They face multiple felony charges including child abuse and aggravated assault. Police have asked for their attempted-murder charge to be upgraded to first-degree murder.

The day of the incident, Moreno and Terry held a yard sale at their residence. Police ask anyone who attended the yard sale on June 8 to please contact Chino Valley police.

Police said the boy's biological father authorized the release of his son's name. There is a gofundme site created in order to raise money for funeral services.
