Mother Arrested In Child's Death

Police say act of neglect leads to manslaughter charge
A Dothan woman has been arrested in connection with the death of her six-month old son. Andrea Lenette Culver, 35, of Ashland Drive was charged with manslaughter after the youngster was found unresponsive at Culver’s home.

Paramedics responded to a medical call Sunday morning and found the child unresponsive according to Lt. Will Benny of the Dothan Police Department. The boy was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Circumstances led to a criminal probe that resulted in Culver’s arrest.

“It was an act of neglect that we believed cause the death,” Benny said. “At this time I am unable to release additional information because we’re still working to tie up some loose ends regarding our investigation.”

Bond is expected to be set for Culver later Monday.
