A North Carolina woman is accused of murdering her infant son, police said.
The Pender County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of Lauren Emilie McCary on June 7. She was charged with first-degree murder after the death of her son.
McCary is being held in jail without bond.
On May 4, sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call and found her 7-month-old son unresponsive. The infant was taken to the hospital, and died the next morning, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators did not say what caused the child’s death.
But they arrested McCary in connection to the case.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (910) 772-3014.
