An Upstate mother is now facing homicide charges after a dresser fell on her 2-year-old son and killed him. Greenville County deputies say last Tuesday Margie Shaver locked her son and his 4-year-old sister in a bedroom at their home in Landrum unsupervised. That's when the dresser fell. Deputies say the child's death was preventable, but because of Shaver's "gross indifference", she is now charged with homicide by child neglect. She and her husband are also charged with child neglect.
