CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a six-month-old boy who had been reported missing has been found in a North Carolina cemetery and that his mother is under arrest.

Law enforcement officials say the body of Chi-Liam Cody Brown-Erickson was found about 4 a.m. Saturday at Sharon Memorial Park in Charlotte.

Police say the body was found about six hours after 30-year-old Tamara Jernel Brown was arrested by Charlotte police for common law robbery and two counts of assault on a government official. She reportedly refused to tell police where her son was.
