Illinois mother charged in connection to child’s death

(KTRS) – An Illinois woman is accused of contributing to the death of her 4-month-old son.

Prosecutors say that Sharron Braxton fell asleep in the same bed as her son, Marcus Covington Jr, and at some point she rolled over and suffocated the child. Police believe that Braxton had been drinking before returning home the night of the incident.

The State’s attorney says the case should serve as a reminder that there are severe consequences when parents endanger the lives of their children.

If convicted, Braxton could faces as much as five years in prison. She is not in custody at this time.
