From http://www.wbtv.com, November 14, 2013

Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have charged an 11-year-old boy in the death of an infant.

CMPD said Thursday morning the juvenile is charged with felony child abuse for his involvement in the death of Camden Johnson. The juvenile’s name is not being released due to his age.

Earlier this week, CMPD announced Wendy Latwann Johnson, 33, had been charged with involuntary manslaughter and child abuse causing serious bodily injury in the death of her child.

The original incident was reported on Nov. 9 on the 6300 block of Suntrace Way off Statesville Road.

According to a release from CMPD, officers arrived at the home and found the infant unresponsive. The child was transported to Carolinas Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Johnson was arrested Monday and placed in the Mecklenburg County Jail. She is being held on a $200,000 bond.

During a court hearing on Tuesday afternoon, Johnson was issued a public defender. She will have a bond hearing next week and a probable cause hearing at the start of December.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at 704-432-TIPS.
