A Virginia Beach mother and her boyfriend have been found guilty in the death of her 5-year-old son.

After a four day trial, 30-year-old Che Hazell was found guilty of second degree murder, child abuse, and child endangerment.

The child’s mother, 30-year-old Christy Ronsha Lamour, was also convicted of the same charges.

Last April, Lamour took her 5-year-old son, Christian, to Portsmouth Naval Hospital.

The child was bruised and not breathing.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

An autopsy revealed he died of blunt force trauma.

Che and Lamour will be sentenced in August.
