The mother of a toddler who was viciously slain by her ex-boyfriend in 2014 is seeking custody of the child's brother, according to a report by the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Katlin Wolfert-Mackey, who recently got married and had another baby, appears to live in the Ulster County hamlet of Milton, the Poughkeepsie Journal report said.

According to The Daily Freeman of Kingston, N.Y., the boyfriend, Kenneth Stahli, was convicted last year of second-degree murder in the beating death of 2-year-old Mason DeCosmo.

He was sentenced to 25 years behind bars, the Poughkeepsie Journal article said.

A court ruled that Wolfert-Mackey, having abused and neglected both her children, could only have supervised visits with Jaxon DeCosmo, the surviving sibling, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.
