Mother charged with toddler's murder due in court

Tiea Jones

A mother charged in the death of her two-year old is due in court Wednesday.

Kentucky State Police charged 22-year-old Tiea Jones with murder and criminal abuse.

Her son, two-year old Nathaniel Jones, died in his Rowan County home in March of 2009. Police say the child was beat to death.

Police also charged Jones's boyfriend at the time, 30-year old Brian Gallagher, with murder. He is also due in court Wednesday.

Charges weren't brought against the couple until last month because of medical testing.
