Aaron Jacoby Williams of Garden City was booked into the Ada County Jail Monday on suspicion of first degree murder. The 31-year-old man is being held without bail, according to jail records.
Paramedics were called to a local health clinic Monday afternoon for a 2-year—old that had been brought in with significant injuries. The toddler was unconscious and not breathing when he arrived at the clinic, and medical staff at the clinic were unable to revive him. The Garden City Police Department says emergency staffers at St. Luke's Medical Center also tried to revive the boy, but he died of his injuries.
Garden City Police investigators searched the home where the child was believed to be injured, and said they learned the toddler had been in Williams' care, and that Williams is engaged to the child's mother.
Police have not released the toddler's name. Williams was expected to make his first court appearance on Tuesday afternoon. It's not immediately known if he has obtained an attorney, and he has not yet had an opportunity to enter a plea.

I Dont Think Thats Fair: Allora Co-Owner Says Staff Was Bumped Down Vaccine List
EAST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It was a busy Saturday night at Allora Italian Restaurant in East Sacramento and nothing unusual for co-owner Deneb Williams – he’s been going at it since the start of the pandemic.
“We are essential workers. We are feeding people who are in quarantine,” said Deneb Williams, also the executive chef at Allora. “A lot of them are in food insecure situations. Without us, they would not eat.”READ MORE: My Nephew Died A Hero: Family Honors Man From Sacramento Mistakenly Shot And Killed By Idaho Police
When COVID-19 hit, Williams got to work boxing up and delivering tens of thousands of meals to schools and community centers.
“We delivered to our church, The Table for 24 weeks straight all the while in closed confined quarters,” he said.
That’s why Williams got his vaccine appointment the minute food and agricultural workers were added to the list. But when he and his employees went to get their first shot this week, they say they were turned away.
“I tried and then they told me I couldn’t,” said Lee Hingon, chef. “I wasn’t exactly happy with that.”READ MORE: 4-Car Crash Forces I-80 Lane Closures, Caltrans Says
Hingon said he was told he wasn’t eligible unless he could show proof he was a frontline worker – like a healthcare worker.
We reached out to the Sacramento County Department of Public Health for an explanation. A spokesperson told me food and agricultural workers haven’t been bumped down or off the list – they’re next in line.
“Due to the size of our worker populations in each Tier – Sacramento County has not begun to vaccinate this group (each county is at a different pace based on works, population, and allocation amounts),” the spokesperson said in a statement.
Williams doesn’t buy it.
He says his workers are getting pushed to the back of the line while others in the same tier get their shots.MORE NEWS: Proposed Casino Near Elk Grove Secures Funding
“We got put on 1b along with teachers and other emergency workers and at the last minute, we got bumped,” Williams said. “And I don’t think that’s fair. I don’t think it’s right.”
