Grandmother Indicted Months After Baby's Death

A grand jury indicts a baby's grandmother, three months after his death. Police say little Xavian Cull died when his grandfather sat on him at the family's Henry County home.

Donna Cull's grandson died on February 14th after emergency crews say her husband, David Cull, suffocated the infant. Now his wife, Donna, also faces charges in the case.

She appeared in court Thursday morning to answer to charges of reckless homicide and tampering with physical evidence. The Henry County grand jury indicted the 52-year-old on the two felony charges.

She tells a local newspaper she has no idea why the grand jury indicted her. She says she was asleep when her intoxicated husband sat on their grandson, who the couple had custody of.

Back when David Cull was charged with the baby's death, Donna Cull told us she tried to revive the baby.

David Cull was also in court Thursday morning. He too is charged with reckless homicide.

Investigators have said Cull had taken prescription pills before sitting on the baby, who was lying in a chair in the family's living room.

David Cull remains in the Henry County Jail. His wife, Donna, has bonded out.
