Rehoboth Mother Charged in Murder of 2 Year Old Son

Kimberly Peno, 39, of Rehoboth, was arraigned this morning in Bristol County Superior Court with Murder in the alleged beating death of her son on March 18, 2010.

On that date, the boy was brought to the Seekonk Police Department where paramedics aided the child and transported him to Children’s Hospital in Providence, where he died several hours later. The child was found to have suffered retinal hemorrhages and brain injuries.

The Seekonk Police Department reported they determined that the child’s injuries were sustained at his residence in Rehoboth and contacted the Rehoboth Police Department. An investigation by the Rehoboth Police Department and the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office concluded that the child was severely beaten by Peno. The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office also claimed that when Peno brought the child to the Seekonk Poilce Department, there were visible injuries on her person, including a swollen right fist; as well as blood in the area of the house where Peno said she was.

Peno’s husband, who claimed to have been asleep during the alleged incident, has not been charged.
