Woman charged with murdering son makes first court appearance

READ MORE: Woman charged with murdering son makes first court appearance
The 18-year-old Wilmington woman charged with murdering her four-month-old son made her first appearance in court yesterday. Logan Van Dyke died Friday night from internal injuries. His mother Meagan Stuhan is charged with first-degree felony murder. While Stuhan was in jail, the boy's father Randy Van Dyke says he was at the hospital with Logan, and had to make the final decision about his son's life. "They asked me to make a decision if my son should live or die and of course she broke down and said no no no, and I explained that somebody beat the crap out of him, someone shook him so bad there's no chance he'd even survive. If he did he'd be a vegetable," said Van Dyke. Randy Van Dyke says he does not believe Stuhan could harm their son. He says she was seeing another man, and Van Dyke thinks that man may have played a part in their son's death. The district attorney says Stuhan could face the death penalty if convicted.
