Mo. mother jailed after 1-year-old found dead

By The Associated Press

AFFTON, Mo. (AP) ' Police investigating the death of a 13-month-old boy have taken the baby's mother into custody a day after his body was discovered near a suburban St. Louis cemetery.

Antoinette King, booking clerk for the St. Louis County jail, says no charges have been filed against 20-year-old Shelby Dasher of Affton, Mo., who was taken into custody early Wednesday. The body of her son, Tyler Dasher, was discovered Tuesday afternoon.

King says Dasher is on a 24-hour hold. The hold is designed to give the police a day to build a case. If no charges are brought in that time, Dasher must be released.

Police say no further information will be released until the prosecutor has reviewed the investigation.

The prosecutor didn't return calls seeking comment.
