Father Slammed Infant at Wall; Mother Starved Him to Death in Las Vegas Home; Both Jailed for Brutal Killing

A 4-month-old boy who looked “emaciated” was found dead in his Las Vegas home. His mother has now been sentenced for her role in his death, according to the police.

Around 12:45 p.m. on April 1, 2022, police were called to a house because someone said a baby was cold to the touch and not responding.

A police report says that Lindsey Bello put her son Miles Stano III to sleep around 6 a.m. that morning. She checked on him about four hours later and found that he was not breathing at 12:40 p.m.

An autopsy by the Clark County Coroner, according to the report, found that the baby was “emaciated” and had two broken skulls and serious cuts and scrapes.

It was found that the baby’s death was caused by murder and blunt force trauma. Police said they found the baby’s sleeping pad, a wipe, and a blanket in a dumpster. Both of them had blood on them.

During the investigation into the death of the child, Bello said she didn’t know how her son was hurt.

Bello reportedly told police that she may have been “exposed” to both cocaine and methamphetamine while she was pregnant, but that her baby was fine.

According to the station, Bello’s boyfriend of about a year, Miles Stano Jr., also strongly denied having anything to do with the child’s death, even when he was put through a polygraph test.

The report says that a witness told police that Bello told them she let Stano, the baby’s father, “permission” to throw the baby against the wall. The witness also said they saw a grave dug in Bello and Stano’s backyard on April 7, 2022, and thought the parents had planned the baby’s death, according to the story.

They were caught on April 28, 2022, and were being held without bail.

Records show that Bello entered an Alford plea in April 2024 to charges of second-degree murder and child abuse. When someone enters an Alford plea, they don’t say they’re guilty, but they do agree that the prosecution has enough proof to convict them.

Judge Tierra Jones in Clark County District Court gave Bello a 10- to 25-year prison term on May 30, 2024. She will be able to get out of jail in 2032 after getting credit for time served.

Stano also reached a deal with Alford over the same charges. Alford will be sentenced later this month.
