CLEVELAND — Camilia Terry was charged in a 10-count indictment Monday for the death of her 3-year-old son, Emilliano.

According to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office, between November 20 and November 26, Terry, 20, of Cleveland, purposely caused the death of her son.

On November 25, Terry reported her son missing, resulting in various law enforcement officials searching for the child throughout the Cleveland area.

Interviews following the discovery of the toddler’s body revealed that Terry admittedly sent police searching for the child knowing she had placed his body in the garbage earlier that week.

Charges include two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of murder, two counts of endangering children, one count of felonious assault, one count of tampering with evidence, one count of making false alarms and one count of gross abuse of a corpse.

Earlier on Monday, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office released the cause of death for Emilliano.

A spokesperson said the toddler died from blunt force trauma to the head, torso and extremities.

Terry is being held behind bars on $2 million bond. She’s also been ordered to have no contact with her two other children.

Pernel Jones & Sons Funeral Home will handle Emilliano Terry’s private services. Further details, including the date of the funeral, were not immediately released.
