Police originally arrested 31-year-old Kenneth Robinson, who was identified as Malone's roommate, according to detectives.

In the police report, Robinson admitted to hitting the seven year old, and binding his hands and legs. The mother, Roshaun Malone was also questioned the day of the murder but not immediately arrested.

Malone's arrest came about in the continuing investigation of the case and consultation with the Clark County District Attorney.

According to an arrest report, Malone told police she was at home when the killing happened. However, Malone's mother, Vera Dawson, said a different story emerged. According to Dawson, Malone told her she had left the apartment at the time of the death.

In addition, Malone also claimed she left the boy with another woman when he died, citing Dawson. But, police stated the only two adults at home during the death were Robinson and Malone.

Like Robinson, Malone was booked into Clark County Detention Center on a count of open murder.

Findley's death represented the 145th homicide in Metro's jurisdiction this year.
