CPS files show history of neglect by Citrus Heights mom charged in toddler’s death

Child Protective Services records show a 22-month-old toddler who died in a Citrus Heights apartment last October was found by paramedics bleeding from his mouth and with severe bruising to the side of his face. The death, which was originally reported to police as a child who was not breathing, resulted in murder charges against 34-year-old Rebecca Thomas, the boy’s mother. Her boyfriend, Taylor Montgomery-Gutzman, 23, was also charged in his death.
