Mom Facing Charges After Son Dies From Injuries

DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas mother has joined her boyfriend in facing charges after the death of her 14-month-old son who allegedly was punched in the stomach. Dallas County jail records show Claudia L. Johnson was being held Friday on a charge of injury to a child by omission. No attorney was listed for Johnson, whose bond was set at $25,000 related to Monday’s death of her son, Marquis. Police also found her 2-year-old daughter injured and the girl underwent surgery. Police on Wednesday arrested Clezel Montague Mughni on a charge of injury to a child in the boy’s death. Authorities on Thursday charged Johnson plus added another injury to a child charge against Mughni, who remains jailed, for the girl’s alleged beating. An attorney for Mughni didn’t immediately return a message Friday. (© Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
