Fulton County Police told news outlets Tuesday night that 25-year-old Lillian Stone was given the extra charge in the death of her 3-year-old son. She was originally charged with first-degree cruelty to children after her arrest on Oct. 31.
Cpl. Maureen Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that police received a call from someone who saw the boy locked inside a car parked in the driveway of a College Park home.
Fulton County police detective Partrena Smith says the child was pronounced dead at a hospital Saturday.
Stone is being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond. It's unclear whether Stone has an attorney.
