LAPORTE COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - The mother of a 4-year-old boy who was found dead inside a home in rural Union Township earlier this week has been charged.

26-year-old Mary Yoder was booked into the LaPorte County Jail on a 48-hour hold that started Tuesday while investigators looked to see if there is probable cause for an arrest in the death of her son, Judah Morgan.

Yoder is now facing numerous charges in the case, including two felony counts of neglect of a dependent.

Judah’s father, 28-year-old Alan Morgan, has been charged with murder and multiple felony counts of neglect of a dependent. He was taken into custody on Monday and he remains housed at the LaPorte County Jail without the possibility of bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
