Indictment: Mother whose son died of exposure failed to supervise him
Deputies say a Morganton woman and her boyfriend were asleep inside, and according to the indictment, Jamie Basinger failed to supervise her son.
Basinger, 23, is charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony child abuse in the death of her son Landyn, 3.
In March, deputies found the child's body on the front porch with the door open, and Basinger asleep inside.
Deputies believe the boy wandered outside during the night and died after being exposed to freezing conditions.
Basinger is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Her court date is May 15, 2017.
