Charlotte Mom Charged in Infant’s Death


From The Charlotte Observer By Cameron Steele, May 28, 2013

A Charlotte woman was charged Tuesday with murder in the death of her infant child.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Krishay Mouzon, 21, just after 7:30 p.m. on charges of first-degree murder, two counts of intentional child abuse and misdemeanor obstructing justice.

Mouzon’s daughter, 6-month-old Keyoni Boderick, died in October. Police found her not breathing in a Charlotte hotel.

The girl’s father, 25-year-old Todd Eric Boderick of Charlotte, was charged four days later with first-degree murder.

The girl’s grandmother said she and her parents had been living at the hotel for about a month before her death.

It was unclear why it took police so long to charge Mouzon.

An investigation, along with a consultation with the Medical Examiner’s Office, led detectives to determine that Boderick had “physically assaulted” the girl, which led to her death, according to a police statement.

Boderick’s arrest on Wednesday comes two years after he was suspected of abusing another of Massey’s grandchildren.

Court records show Mouzon and Boderick were both charged with felony child abuse after the then-seven-week-old boy was hospitalized for bleeding of the brain, skull and rib fractures and other injuries.

The couple told investigators at the time that they had dropped the baby accidentally on separate occasions, court records show, but “denied any intentional harming of the child.”

The abuse charges were later dropped, in part, because prosecutors said they could not determine who was responsible for the child’s injuries, according to the 2010 dismissal papers.

The grandmother currently has custody of the boy who was injured, who is now two, and Mouzon’s older daughter.

Mouzon was in the Mecklenburg County Jail Tuesday on $105,000 secured bond.
