Ever Mendez is charged with murdering  2-year-old Isaiah Villanueva last Friday in the Lower Valley.
A criminal background check tells us it’s not Mendez's first time on the wrong side of the law.
He has a history of violence. Last year, police charged Mendez with a felony after he allegedly tried to strangle a family member.
Paramedics responded to the house last Friday but couldn't save the boy.
A neighbor who shares a wall of the apartment says he didn't hear the baby cry for help.

“They were pulling someone on the stretcher when, you know I got up fixing to go to work, and then I came out. I saw a lady crying,” said the neighbor.

Neighbors say family members have been coming over to collect personal belongings. They say the dead baby's mother may have been Mendez's girlfriend.
