Barreras expected in court Tuesday

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A man charged with killing his 3-year-old son and burying him in his backyard in Tucson is expected in court on Tuesday.

The attorney for Martin Barreras is expected to file a motion asking the judge to lower his bond.

Martin and Raquel Barreras are scheduled to appear in court next month for a status conference. Both face abuse charges and a murder charge for their 3-year-old son Roman.

His remains were hidden behind a south-side home where the family lived until they were evicted.

Investigators said Raquel starved the boy to death and Martin did nothing to stop it.

Both have pleaded not guilty.
