The mother of a two-year-old boy who died in July last year has been charged over his death.
Fenton Hogan died after he was found collapsed at his home address in Cotswold Close, Frankley. A post mortem later revealed the toddler died from methadone poisoning.
His mother, Kelly Emery, of Gravelly Hill, Erdington, was arrested in February this year on suspicion of manslaughter; and yesterday (Sept 9) she was charged with the offence plus an additional charge of child cruelty.
The 32-year-old was remanded into custody and is due to appear before Birmingham Magistrates this morning (10 Sept).
