Shelby Dasher Charged with beating her baby son to death when he wouldn't stop crying - 16th Nov 2011

The mother of the 13-month-old baby whose body was found wrapped in a blanket and dumped in woods has been charged with his murder.

Shelby Dasher, 20, was charged with second-degree murder after admitting to police she repeatedly struck her son Tyler in a rage because he was crying and 'wouldn't lay down, wouldn't go back to sleep'.

She also admitted disposing of his body, which was found discarded near a cemetery about a mile from his home on Tuesday, hours after Dasher reported him missing.

It followed a frantic four-hour emergency services search for the child.

Dasher originally told police she overslept that morning and discovered him gone from his crib when she awoke after claiming she put her son to bed at 10.30pm on Monday night.
