Bryeon Hunter mother pleads not guilty in death of son

May 23, 2013 (MAYWOOD, Ill.)

Lakeshia Baker, 22, and Michael Scott, 21, are accused of beating Bryeon Hunter to death last month and dumping his body in the Des Plaines River. They each face first-degree murder charges.

At first, in mid-April, Baker told police three men attacked her and took the boy.

A child's body which is believed to be Bryeon's was found last week.
