A man has been charged with 25 child abuse offences following the death of a seven-year-old boy who died after he reportedly fell off a pogo stick in May.

Homicide detectives arrested Kodi James Maybir on Friday, after a three month investigation in to the boy’s suspicious death.

The boy was known to the Department of Family and Community Services and died from unexplained head injuries.

His mother told police she found her son dead in the bedroom of an Oatley unit about 6.30am on Tuesday, May 21. In a statement to police at the time, she allegedly said “the boy fell off a pogo stick and hit his head while playing inside the unit and lost consciousness” the day before.

Mr Maybir, 29, was charged with offences relating to the alleged abuse of the boy.

He was arrested at Fairfield police station and is expected to appear before Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.

He faces 25 charges, including seven counts of common assault, seven of child abuse and one charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Strike Force Miretta detectives will allege Mr Maybir repeatedly abused the boy, struck him with implements, withheld food and water and made him sit outside in his underwear as punishment.

Police will allege Mr Maybir made several films that show the boy being punched and kicked. Detectives seized a laptop containing several films.

A court will hear Mr Maybir allegedly encouraged the boy’s younger siblings to repeatedly assault him on video.

Some of the abuse allegedly occurred in a music recording studio in the Oately unit.

Mr Maybir works for a music recording company and was often referred to by his stage name which was “Kopri”.

Police have yet to lay any murder charges in relation to the boy’s death.

Former Hurstville police Chief Superintendent Brad Shepherd said at the time ambulance officers found the boy dead in a bedroom at Oatley.

Paramedics were called to the unit just before 6.30am after reports a boy was unconscious and not breathing. Ambulance officers pronounced the boy dead at the scene.

Mr Maybir and the boy’s mother were both questioned by Hurstville police at the time.

It is believed the mother is separated from the boy’s father and she had been living in a caravan park.
