Cousin Charged with Little Boy's Death
The boys told officers that 4-year old Coty Cox fell off the bed and hit his head on a dresser, but that turned out to be a lie. Autopsy results and further investigation showed the little boy was shot in the head with a BB gun. Coty Cox had been left in the care of his 13-year-old cousin and 10-year-old brother when the incident happened. Sheriff Chris Mathes says the 13-year old boy will be charged with reckless homicide.
