DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Three people have been arrested and charged after a 10-year-old boy was abused “for an extended amount of time” before dying on Dec. 13, according to court documents.
Dayton Police responded to a residence in the 1900 block of Kensington Drive in Dayton for an unresponsive 10-year-old boy on Dec. 13 at around 2:30 pm. The boy, identified as Takoda Collins, had multiple bruises and cuts all over his body when he was taken to Dayton Children’s where he died.

25-year-old Jennifer Ebert, and 28-year-old Amanda Hinze were also arrested and charged with four counts of child endangering as a result of the investigation. Ebert and Hinze were officially indicted on those charges on Dec. 27 by the Montgomery County Grand Jury.
All three are being held in the Montgomery County Jail. Bond for both women has been set at $1 million.
Ebert and Hinze also lived at the residence on Kensington Drive in Dayton. It is unknown what the relationship between the three adults is.
