LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- The couple accused of beating their son to death will stay in jail.

The mother and step-father of seven year old R.J. Arrington went before a judge today.

One of the people devastated by this tragedy is the boy's biological father who lives in Illinois. News 3's Marissa Mike spoke with him today.

He says he is still numb and in disbelief. His son, Rodderick Arrington junior carried his name. The boy who loved to play and sing, now gone and his father is left with regret he didn't fight hard enough to keep his first-born son.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
