The teen lived in a DeSoto house where his parents also cared for four foster children. DeSoto police allege the boy intentionally body-slammed Katherine against the floor.

She died of a fractured skull. Police described the murder as "horrific."

The boy's mother, Joyce Luvern Burks, has also been charged with injury to a child. Police allege that she waited several hours before seeking medical care for the injured girl.

if it was deliberate then charge both

if the wasn't deliberate the the mother should be charged with parental neglect also.
