The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

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.
