The mother of a 2-year-old Huetown boy who died when a gun was discovered earlier this week has now been charged with his death.
Hutton police announced the manslaughter charge on Friday against 23-year-old Krishna Daniel Small. She has been charged with the death of 2-year-old Kyler Small.
Huetown police and firefighters responded to a report of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at 11:35 a.m. Tuesday at a residence in the 1400 block of 26th Avenue.
Chief Mike Yarbrough came to find the 2-year-old and immediately began life-saving efforts. The baby was taken to Children’s, Alabama, where he was pronounced dead at 12:22 pm.
The chief said the child found the child’s family member in the preliminary investigation and released the firearm.

She is expected to surrender on the charges. Her bond is set at $ 30,000.
