ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  We've got reaction from the family of a Baconton toddler who was murdered a week ago Thursday night.

Two year old Lila Grayce Lyons was found unresponsive last Friday morning when her mother Candice Smith arrived at this Knollwood Drive home to pick her up. The family issued a statement today thanking everyone for their support during this difficult time. They say Lila had a smile that would brighten any room. They also say, Candice Smith, "was guilty of only one thing, using poor judgement in leaving her child to bond with someone that she obviously did not know as well as she thought she did." Smith's boyfriend Thomas Darling is charged with murder and cruelty to a child.

An autopsy revealed Lila bled to death as a result of a lacerated liver.

They say, "Darling has deprived the family and friends of a lifetime of love from Lila Grayce and the court system will see to it, that he gets what he deserves."
