Mason Dominguez Death
The little boy was found ‘hidden under a false cardboard bottom and multiple items of food,’ the Reno Gazette-Journal reported.
The mother had sent a note to school with her eldest daughter earlier that day that said Toseland had become abusive weeks ago and she was being held against her will in the home, where Toseland also lived.
Prosecutors revealed in court that the letter was written by the mother, who had been dating Toseland for 11 months, also specified she hadn’t seen her son since December 11 and that the ‘toddler was possibly deceased.’
Dressed in the print T-shirt he had been wearing at the time of his arrest, the handcuffed and dishevelled accused killer kept his eyes on the floor until he was led out of the courtroom.

Toseland is scheduled to return to court Thursday for the murder case and on February 28 for the kidnapping case. He was booked into Clark County Detention Center without bail. Las Vegas prosecutors could combine the charges under one criminal case.
