OH mom charged with toddler's murder

CLEVELAND (AP) - As a Cleveland mother awaits arraignment on a murder charge, a crowd turns out for a candlelight vigil to remember her slain 3-year-old son.

Authorities say 20-year-old Camilia Terry will be arraigned Thursday morning on an aggravated murder charge prior to her case being forwarded to a grand jury.

Terry is accused in the death of her 3-year-old son Emilliano, whose body was found in trash bags at a waste processing center near their apartment Monday.

Terry initially told police that Emilliano went missing during a Sunday outing to a park.

Around 75 people showed up at the same park for a vigil Wednesday night to pray and remember the toddler as church bells chimed.

The medical examiner's office has not said what caused Emilliano's death.
