MILWAUKEE (AP) - Dozens of people gathered on Milwaukee’s south side to remember a little boy who police say died of abuse.

Three-year-old Aiden Archer died last Wednesday at the hospital where he had been on life support since Monday when police were called to his home. About 100 people turned out for a vigil Sunday night. The gathering was organized by the group Guardians of Children, which hoped to raise child abuse awareness.

Prosecutors say the toddler’s mother, Megan Scott, failed to stop the abuse by her boyfriend, Maurice Snyder. A criminal complaint says the child had brain swelling, multiple bruises and bite marks on his body.

WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1MhQONK ) reports both Scott and Snyder are at the Milwaukee County detention center.
