A one-year-old Georgia boy with a heart condition died from starvation and his mother now faces murder charges.
DeKalb County authorities arrested Alice Davis on charges of murder, concealing death, and cruelty to children over the death of her son.
The victim, who had peripheral pulmonic stenosis, died from starvation and extreme illness due to the lack of medical care.
David allegedly hid the child’s death for more than a week before calling the police.
Police said that deputies found the deceased child along with an injured 13-year-old sibling inside the Lithonia home.
Investigators declined to disclose further details about the case and circumstances surrounding the boy’s death.
