WORTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia mother is facing a felony murder charge in the death of her 2-year-old son, authorities said.
On Nov. 13, Worth County sheriff’s deputies discovered the boy dead at a Lovett Road home, the news outlets reported. A Georgia Bureau of Investigation autopsy ruled the death a “homicide caused by severe injuries,” WMAZ reported.
Swain, who also faces a child cruelty charge, remains jailed without bond, according to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office website.
Authorities also have issued a warrant for 45-year-old Willie James Rhodes Jr. in connection with the case, the outlets reported. He is wanted on second-degree murder and child cruelty charges, officials said.
