We have new information on the Wilmington mother charged with the murder of her four month old baby. Angela Billings, describes her nephew Logan VanDyke, as a very mellow, low key and happy baby. Angela's sister in law, Maegan M. Stuhan was arrested Thursday for felony child abuse of her four month old boy, Logan. Charges of child abuse changed to first degree felony murder Saturday. Just before midnight, Logan died from multiple fractures and internal injuries. Detective Lisa Savitts said, “our investigation shows us that it was more than one incident, however we're waiting for the final result from the medical examiner." Billings said, “I don't think anyone saw this coming or that Meagan needed help." Tuesday morning Stuhan brought her son to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Savitts said that Stuhan went to the hospital and reported that her son was having breathing difficulty. It turned out that may not have been the case. Savitts said, "It’s my understanding that it seemed apparent to first medical responders that his injuries were indicative of non-accidental trauma, thus resulting in the mandatory reporting to social services as well as law enforcement." Billings said Stuhan eventually confessed to authorities that she abused Logan. “She changed her story and then started admitting stuff, like hurting him, un-Godful things" But later Stuhan retracted her confession, Billings said. She says,"He's going to be flown back here we are going to be having a funeral for him." Stuhan is being held with out bond at the New Hanover County jail. Her first court appearance will be Monday. Stuhan's aunt, Angela Billings lives in Michigan, that's where Stuhan is from. She said that Stuhan was just supposed to be vacationing in Wilmington to get away from her boyfriend Randy VanDyke, but that she later decided to move here. The aunt said that she never knew of Stuhan doing anything to harm her son.
