Gardner will be charged with malice murder in her son, Dayton Flenoy’s, death.

Officers originally went to the home on Argyle Street in November of last year.

Gardner told them Flenoy fell off the bed and hit his head. A medical examiner says that’s not true.

Instead, the infant died from intentional head trauma.

Gardner fled shortly after his death. She will be charged with malice and felony murder.
