Two people including an 8-year old boy are charged in the death of a 1-year old girl.
The woman's lawyer says she is disputing the allegations.
Police say Katerra Marsha Lewis and a friend left the boy to watch over five younger children while the women went to a nightclub.
The boy is accused of beating the infant when she wouldn't stop crying.
He faces charges as well but legal experts say the case will be challenging because of his age. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Charges will be filed against an 8-year-old boy accused of beating a 1-year-old girl to death while they were left home alone as their mothers went to a night club.
Police say a murder warrant has been obtained for the boy and his case will go through the family court system.
There's no minimum age for prosecution in Alabama.
A director at the Southern Juvenile Defender Center says she believes there will be questions on whether the boy has "the rational capacity for the proceedings against him."
