PITTSBURGH - A Cambria County baby’s death has been ruled a homicide, and his stepmother has been charged.
Police said Haley Butler had been asking for prayers for her stepson on social media while they were investigating her.
Brennon Everett died Wednesday at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
The baby likely suffered from shaken baby syndrome, doctors said.
Court documents said he was “seriously underweight and had symptoms of severe shaken baby syndrome.”
The boy was living with his father and Butler in Cambria County before he was taken to the hospital, police said.
“I’m feeling obviously angry and drained. My emotions are out of whack,” said Brennon’s mom, Rebecca Everett.
The father claims the baby fell, police said.
