Mother and grandmother charged in LaPorte Co. boy's death
2 more people are now charged in the death of a 2-year old LaPorte County boy.
Prosecutors on Wednesday charged the mother and grandmother of Nizier Brown.
Regina Brown faces a charge of neglect of a dependent, while Derris Baylor is charged with obstruction of justice and failing to report child abuse or neglect.
Police say Brown knew about the abuse.
Her boyfriend, 22-year-old Tommy Shannon, Jr., faces murder charges in the case.
The coroner says he hit the 2-year-old hard enough in the stomach to split his pancreas in half.
The autopsy also found signs of previous abuse.
Police don't know what led to the abuse.
