OAKLAND -- (KTXL) -- A Stockton toddler died Friday after he was taken off life support at the Oakland Children's Hospital, according to the Stockton Police Department.

Brittany Gonzales says her 2-year-old son, Jackson "Jax" Love, was abused by his step-mother.

Gonzales says she was told Jax had fallen off a trampoline on Tuesday. She said Stockton Police detectives spoke with her, her ex-husband and his new wife Chalsey Maynard.

Maynard was ultimately arrested for three charges, including child abuse, and booked into jail on Wednesday afternoon.

“I want answers. I want justice but I don’t think I’m going to get answers whatsoever,” Gonzales said.

She adds she complained to Child Protective Services that her son was being abused twice but nothing happened.
