Funeral Scheduled for St. Louis Boy
AFFTON, Mo. (AP) -- Funeral services are scheduled for Monday for a St. Louis area boy whose mother is charged in his death.
A St. Louis County judge has entered a not guilty plea for 20-year-old Shelby Dasher of Affton. Dasher is charged with second-degree murder in the death of her son, Tyler.
Dasher reported the boy missing from his crib last Tuesday. His body was found a few hours later in a field near the family's home. Prosecutors say Dasher confessed to beating the boy because of his crying.
Services for Tyler are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Monday at St. Mark Catholic Church in Affton.
