LIBERTY CO., GA (WTOC) – There are new charges in the death of a 3 year old.

Liberty County deputies arrested Jocelyn Carroll charged her with cruelty to a child.

They said she knew the man charged with her son's death. The sheriff's office said Robert Gonzales beat the child before ultimately killing him.

She said Gonzales, a Fort Stewart soldier, watched the child on the weekends at his Hinesville home while she worked.

Hinesville police said they got the call a few days after Gonzales took the child to Liberty Regional Medical Center with head injuries. The child was then flown to Savannah for treatment.

There is no word on when she'll head to court.
