Name: Liliana Rodriguez

Age: 2

Place of residence: Oklahoma City

Died: July 20

What happened: Liliana was beaten to death in an Oklahoma City motel room. Prosecutors accused her mother, Elizabeth Nicole Guerrero, of leaving Liliana alone with Guerrero's live-in boyfriend, Herman Marzelo Vail Bailon. The boyfriend admitted to investigators that he slapped, kicked and stomped on Liliana after she refused to eat her lunch. Bailon was charged with murder. Guerrero also has been charged with murder for leaving Liliana with Bailon even though he had been violent with the child in the past.

Other: “(Liliana) was very personable,” Guerrero told reporters shortly after the 2-year-old's death. “She was just starting to talk and learning all of the things kids do when they're that age. She was a loving child and full of life. She was just beautiful.”
