Tulsa police have arrested two women for first-degree murder after the body of an 19-month-old child was found inside a vehicle during a traffic stop.

Mica Shoate and Jasmin Williams, both 22, were booked on a first-degree murder complaint in connection to the death of Zamontay Green.

An officer spotted the two women driving very slowly on Lewis Avenue Sunday night. The officer saw the boy lying in the back seat and gave him CPR, but it was too late. The women told police they were headed to the hospital.

The medical examiner's office found the child had been dead for eight to 10 hours.

"Multiple broken ribs, deep, severe contusions, bruising throughout the body, had bruising on the face, both sides of the head, what they call brain bleeds, extensive injuries," said Sergeant Brandon Wycoff, Tulsa Police Department Child Crisis.

"This child was beaten pretty severely."

Police say the women gave them a statement, but the statements were disproven based on cell phone records, witness statements and items of evidence found during search warrants.

The women say they don't know how the baby received his injuries.

Police say the boy's parents live in Arkansas. The two women say he had been staying in Tulsa with them since he was 1-month-old.

"The biological family lives out of state, in Arkansas, both mom and dad's side. These two women have the baby staying with them in an agreed upon location. Mom agreed to let the women watch him. We're trying to verify the timeline if she was coming back to get him," Wycoff said.

Their Facebook pages say they are in a relationship with each other.

Police say Zamontay has two siblings living in Tulsa. One is in DHS custody and the other is living with a grandparent

They say DHS had a custody hearing scheduled for this Wednesday, but they were not sure which of the children it was for.
