Police charge woman with murdering baby
A 22-year-old Prince William County woman has been charged with murdering her 3-month-old son after police said their investigation revealed her neglect resulted in the baby’s death.
The child, Tyeron Green, died in May 2010 when he and the mother, Tyesha M. Green, were living in Dale City. Ms. Green told police she had fallen asleep in bed with the baby and woke up to find him unresponsive.
Police said Ms. Green was drinking and smoking marijuana in the bed that night.
The police investigation found her responsible for the boy’s death, concluding she provided poor prenatal care and an unsafe sleeping environment and failed to provide follow-up treatment for a previously diagnosed infection.
Ms. Green was also charged with child abuse and neglect and is being held without bond.
