Mom charged with baby’s 2013 death

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Charlotte woman is accused in the death of her baby in Brunswick County.

Katherine Ann Jennings, 33, is in jail charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Luke Stephen Phillips was just eight months old when he died last year.

Jennings was arrested in Charlotte last night and brought back to Brunswick County. Warrants show police came to believe some time after the baby’s death that jennings was responsible for it.

This was not the first child Jennings lost. In 2012, she lost another son in a similar incident, according to the Charlotte Observer, where she was said to be sleeping and accidentally rolled over on the child.

The DA’s office says it has never filed charges in a case like this one before.
