CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Federal authorities have charged a Fort Campbell, Kentucky, woman with murder and child abuse resulting in death.
The Leaf-Chronicle (http://leafne.ws/1Cvfkti) reports Sheilla Linares, who was the baby sitter for Thomas Castellon II, was served an indictment on Friday charging her in the death of the 2-month-old infant from Clarksville, Tennessee.
An autopsy determined the child died from blunt force trauma to the head in December 2013 and his death was ruled a homicide.
The boy’s mother, Lucy Castellon, said her family is glad an arrest has been made.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Linares has an attorney.
