Jamaal Goodwin Released from Hospital
Boy is reportedly living with a relative.
The boy whose throat was allegedly slashed by his mother on March 18 is "doing very well," according to the Salem News.
The paper reported the boy is out of the hospital and is living with his relative Wayne Cox.
Jamaal had lived with Cox until two years ago, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Tanicia Goodwin, 25, allegedly slashed the throats of her 8-year-old son Jaamal, and 3-year-old daughter, Erica, tampered with sprinklers and a doorknob and set fire to their Pope Street apartment before fleeing on March 18.
At a March 26 dangerousness hearing, Assistant District Attorney Melissa A. Woodward said Goodwin "has a history of anger issues."
Woodard said the 8-year-old said he had been beaten consistently with items including a belt, broom and stick, according to DCF records. The boy also said his 3-year-old sister had been hit, Woodard said, and he is "afraid of his mother when she gets angry."
On April 10 it was reported Erica Goodwin had been released from the hospital.
Tanicia Goodwin is scheduled to return to court this week for a probable cause hearing.
