February 16, 2019

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A 25-year-old Alabama mother has been charged with murder in the death of her infant son last year.

Al.com reports Lakendra Yashekia Williams, of Tuscaloosa, was booked Thursday into the Tuscaloosa County Jail after a grand jury indicted her on charges of murder and aggravated assault.

Williams was initially arrested on a domestic violence/assault charge in March after Tuscaloosa police responded to a hospital about a report of a child suffering severe head trauma. Detectives launched an investigation which led to the initial charge against Williams, who’s being held on $60,000 bond. It was unknown if she has an attorney.
