Woman formally charged in son’s car death

ANDERSON (AP) — Prosecutors have filed formal charges against a central Indiana woman who had been drinking and was taking a nap while her 2-year-old son crawled into a hot car and later died.

Britni Nicole Wihebrink of Daleville was charged Tuesday with neglect of a dependent resulting in death and obstruction of justice. She’s being held without bond. Her initial hearing is set for Sept. 24.

A probable cause affidavit says her son, 2-year-old Jaxon Stults, was found “very hot and stiff” in her car about 6:30 p.m. Sept. 5 and died in an ambulance taking him to a hospital.
