An Ohio mom who reported her son missing on Sunday has been arrested for his murder.
Brittany Gosney, 29, of Middletown, reported her 6-year-old son, James Robert Hutchinson, missing to police.
Police and community members immediately began looking for the boy until his mom admitted to his murder just three hours after the search began.
Gosney, 29, and her boyfriend, James Hamilton, 42, told investigators that the boy was killed a few days before he was reported missing and that they dumped his body in the Ohio River. Police are working with trained searchers to find the boy’s remains.
They have not yet entered pleas.
Two other kids have been removed from their home.
