Las Vegas woman who found her son dead in a freezer Tuesday morning says she suffered months of abuse from her boyfriend. He has been charged with the death.

After a woman instructed her daughter to send a note detailing her abuse to her teacher, a Las Vegas police officer arrested Brandon Lee Toseland (35). Also, the note stated that the woman was not allowed to see her son, aged 4, who she last saw in December before his body was discovered.

Stephen Stubbs, a lawyer representing this woman, stated that she suffered months of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Toseland threatened to kill her son and daughter, aged 7 if she ever left him.

Brandon Toseland is a suspect in the child’s death. He appears in court Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at the Regional Justice Center in Las Vegas.

Stubbs stated that her daughter was never held captive in a room or bound when she was with her. She never had the opportunity to run with her daughter.

According to the attorney, the children were also abused at home.

Stubbs stated that the mother was emotionally, sexually, and physically abused. Stubbs said that the children were often separated from their mother and physically and emotionally abused.

According to an arrest report, Toseland stated that he had shared the news with the mother about the death of the boy and told her she wouldn’t be allowed to view his body as he would lose freedom. However, he didn’t previously share this information with law enforcement nor call an ambulance.

According to the attorney, the woman had met Toseland through her husband, who was the father of her children. He died in January 2021. She and her children moved in two months later with Toseland who slowly but surely ruled the house.
