Novi — Police are investigating the death of a toddler found Friday inside a Novi condo where the child's mother was also severely injured.

About 5:32 p.m, a male called 911 saying he arrived home to 50000 block of Sevilla Circle and found his wife and toddler victims of violence, officials said. 

The child and the mother had suffered severe physical trauma, according to emergency personnel from the Novi police and fire departments.

The toddler was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman was transported to a hospital for medical treatment.  

Neighbor Ranadheer Gudupaty returned from work Friday around 6:30 p.m. saying he saw a commotion of police cars and ambulances at his neighbor's house.

“There were no specifics on what happened. It’s very troubling,” said Gudupaty, who has lived in the neighborhood for five years. “They moved in about two years ago. These are all new-construction homes built in 2017 down this block.”

Gudupaty said he didn’t know the family well and met them during the summer.
