Nashua toddler succumbs to injuries

NASHUA — A 2-year-old boy who police say was assaulted by his mother has died, according to Jeffery Strelzin from the Attorney General's Office.

The child had been fighting for his life in a Boston hospital. His mother, Unique S. Gould, 21, of 8 Ash Court, told authorities she had trouble waking him on April 26. According to documents filed in court, Gould later told detectives she had struck the child on his buttocks and head the night before and had "blacked out" at one point.

Gould has been charged with first-degree assault.

Court records show that doctors at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center found her son had "significant head trauma and inter-cranial bleeding" when he was taken there by ambulance. He was later transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital with a severe brain injury.

Strelzin said Saturday night no upgraded charges have been filed against Gould, but the case is still under investigation.

The little boy, identified on Gould's Facebook page as Devon, turned 2 on March 16, according to court documents.
