CLEVELAND, Ohio — The mother of a 10-year-old boy accused of shooting and killing a baby was set to appear in court Thursday but did not appear because she is in federal prison.

Brittney McTier, 31, of Cleveland, is charged with obstructing justice and endangering children.

McTiern had been on federal probation on bank fraud-related charges.

Police and paramedics were called to a house on Rexwood Avenue near East 143rd Street back in April. The victim, 1-year-old Isaiah Martin, was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Cleveland Division of Police said investigators believe a 10-year-old boy was the shooter.
