LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The mother of a 2-year-old boy who was allegedly killed by the mother's boyfriend has been arrested on prostitution charges.

Tayler Nicholson, 21, was arrested Wednesday on three charges of soliciting or engaging in prostitution and possessing a deadly weapon.

According to her arrest report, Nicholson was met by undercover officers at MGM Grand on Tuesday night. They made conversation and the officers bought her a drink. During their conversation, they discussed an exchange of money for her sexual services. While walking to the hotel room with three undercover officers, an officer identified himself and placed her under arrest. 

The report stated her purse contained condoms and brass knuckles. 

Tayler Nicholson is the mother of Amari Nicholson, who was reported missing in May while she was out of town. Her son was later found dead. Her boyfriend, Terrell Rhodes, was the sole suspect charged with murder in the boy's death.

Nicholson was set to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

Rhodes also appeared in court Wednesday, where prosecutors declined to pursue the death penalty in his murder case.

What is the problem? She was just trying to earn a few bucks while breeding a replacement welfare kid.


Poor child race by terrible mother and stepfather both need to go to prison for freaking life


You could follow journalistic guidelines and use her last name throughout the piece. Or I guess you could just randomly switch to her first name in the middle of it, because why bother with consistency.


Poor child didn't stand a chance of growing up at all.
