Posted: Updated:
LONG VIEW, N.C. -

A Catawba County woman has been arrested and charged with the death of her son earlier this month.

Twenty-one-year-old Whitney Weathers of Long View was arrested Thursday and charged with felony child abuse. 

Weather's boyfriend, William Howard Lail III was charged with murder May 3 after police found their 20-month-old son, Jaden, dead. 

Warrants say that Lail intentionally scalded Jaydon Ray Sandlin and his sister when he was watching them for Weathers.

The 3-year-old girl, Kylies, had burns and bruises. 

Police say Weathers was not at home when a neighbor called police to the home.
