FLINT, MI –   A young mother is one less child, after her significant other found out she was possibly cheating on him.

Police say a 19-year-old Rico Riggs admitted to kicking 5-month-old Jordan Algee Jr. in a fit of rage, causing injuries that led to the baby boy’s death.

A detective testified against Riggs.   “He stated, ‘I lost control, spazzed out and kicked the baby,’” Detective Brett Orvis told a district court judge Thursday.

On March 25, Rico became enraged when he found out the boy’s mother, 23-year-old Temara Reed was sending text messages to ex-boyfriends and having them inside the home, when her boyfriend wasn’t around.

“He had found out that they were coming over when he wasn’t there. He didn’t know their names. He said he found out by going through her phone, Detective Orvis said.

Temara testified in court that Riggs gained access to her phone when she went to the store to get Rico some snacks. She left her phone at home and that’s when Riggs went through it.

Dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit with matching orange jail issued flip flops, a sobbing Temera said,

“All I did was run across the street to the store, and I came back. I didn’t know.

She left her phone at home and that’s when Briggs went through it.

“He got upset and went upstairs angry. That’s when he spazzed out and kicked the covers, losing control. Jordan was laying in the blankets that he kicked. As soon as he kicked the covers Jordan immediately began crying,” Detective Orvis told the court.

When Temera got home the baby was still screaming. She tried rubbing his stomach. Reid and Riggs rushed baby Jordan to McLaren hospital and then he was transported to Hurley Medical Center, where he died Sunday night.

The medical examiner alerted police after it was determined the child suffered from what’s described as “blunt force trauma” to his internal organ. The ME said the injuries was not accidental.

Rico blamed the other baby for the injuries

“Rico was asked how Jordan got his injuries. He said he didn’t know and that if anything happened it had to be the other child, Nyla.

Initially when asked what happened to the baby,  Rico told investigators he didn’t know and that if anything happened, it had to be the other child, Nyla.
