TEXAS CITY, Texas - A Houston-area woman has been charged in the 2011 death of her 10-year-old disabled son whose body was found in a cardboard box.
The Galveston County Daily News reports that police arrested 42-year-old Tina Madrid Wednesday on a murder charge in Texas City.
A coroner last week ruled Jonathan Singer's death a homicide.
Jonathan's body was discovered last April in a box in his father's truck in Spring Branch, a Houston neighborhood.
Authorities say the boy had cerebral palsy and was neglected. Prosecutors say Jonathan drowned after his 46-year-old father, Jeffrey Singer, left him alone in a bathtub.
Singer has been charged with serious bodily injury to a child.
Online jail records do not list an attorney for Madrid, whose bond is $50,000.
