Eighteen-month-old Jeremiah was raped, beaten and stabbed. He died on June 12, 2017 as a result of blunt force trauma to his spine, a cracked skull, broken ribs and bite marks all over his body, including his face and genitals.
Peters and his girlfriend, Jeremiah’s mother Abigail Ruiters, are on trial.
Peters faces a charge of rape and murder, while Ruiters is charged with abuse and neglect of Jeremiah and her two daughters, aged 11 and six.
