Mooresville police officials told WTHR in Indianapolis that Meghan Price and Steven Ingalls Jr. used "graphic" text messages to discuss violence against Price's son, who had special needs. Brayson Price died the day before Thanksgiving after he was rushed to a hospital.
WTHR reported that police have not revealed how the boy died, but said that forensic testing took several months to complete. Those tests led to the arrests of Price, 25, of Mooresville, and Ingalls Jr., 31, of Indianapolis, police said. They both face multiple charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and child neglect.
