BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations (CUSI) arrested Nytosha Laforce for the death of her 14 month old son Peighton Geraw.

A press release says she is being charged with 2nd degree murder. She is currently incarcerated on unrelated charges and is lodged at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. Laforce is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning.

The investigation is ongoing.
