Mom charged in son's death, a few months after body found

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

The mother of a 3-year-old boy has been charged with murder, more than two months after his decomposing body was found in their Detroit apartment while she was in the psychiatric unit at a hospital.

The prosecutor's office says there's been an "extensive investigation" since Aaron Minor's body was found by a maintenance worker who noticed a strong odor in late May.

Deanna Minor was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder, murder during child abuse and other crimes. She's in custody and will appear in court Thursday. It wasn't known if she has an attorney.

In May, neighbors had wondered if Minor and her son had moved.
