Kayla Garcia, 4, 'beaten to death by Matthew Carrillo as horrific punishment for dropping MEATBALL out of Subway sandwich'

A four-year-old girl was beaten to death during a horrific punishment for dropping a meatball out of her Subway sandwich, her mother has claimed.

Melanie Garcia, 21, brought Kayla Garcia to San Antonio's Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, where employees called Texas police when they saw the girl covered in bruises and cigarette burns.

She initially said the injuries were caused by a fall, but she now claims her then-boyfriend Matthew Carrillo, 23, beat the child to death merely for dropping food on the floor.

The gruesome details were revealed when Miss Garcia gave evidence at a preliminary hearing for her ex-boyfriend Matthew Carrillo according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Both Carrillo and Garcia have been charged with causing serious bodily injury to a child after Kayla died from her injuries on May 9, 2012.
