Judge: State Custody for Nine-Year-Old Boy Charged in Death
The Belleville News Democrat reports the judge also ordered that the boy undergo a psychiatric evaluation by doctors at the Alton Mental Health Center. The boy isn't being identified because of his age. He's charged as a juvenile in the beating death of a 14-month-old Cahokia boy in August.
Three adults are facing child endangerment charges in the case after prosecutors alleged they allowed the toddler to be left unsupervised in a Cahokia home with four other children.
