CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An 11-year-old boy has been charged in connection with the death of a 7-month-old in Charlotte.
The mother of the infant was charged Monday, but the grandmother said the mother was not at the home when the baby died.
According to WSOC, the boy was charged with felony child abuse for his involvement in the death of infant Camden Johnson.
Detectives are withholding the name of the boy due to his age.
The baby died Saturday, and officers arrested his mother, Wendy Johnson, Monday night.
Police were called to a home on Suntrace Way and found Johnson’s baby unresponsive.
The baby was transported to the hospital where he died.
Police say physical assault led to Camden’s death.
