Declan suffered massive brain injuries and other internal damage at his home and died the next day. His mother's boyfriend, Marcus Clancy, 31, is charged with first-degree murder. A trial is set for June. The boyfriend told police the boy fell and banged his head on a bed rail while climbing in a closet. His mother, Janet Stewart, said she was away shopping when Declan was injured.
Declan had been taken away from his mother in January 2006 because of abuse and neglect allegations. He stayed with an aunt for more than a year. A judge allowed Declan to reunite with his mother in July 2007 after she completed a treatment plan. The aunt said she warned a Department of Human Services worker the mother wasn't ready.
