Chicago -- A suburban Chicago woman who reported that her 1-year-old son had been kidnapped is now facing murder charges.
Prosecutors say Lakeshia Baker of Maywood beat her son to death with a belt as her boyfriend held the child to the floor, and then concocted a false story about the boy's abduction.
The toddler, Bryeon Hunter, has been missing since Tuesday and is now presumed dead, though authorities have yet to find a body.
The mother's boyfriend, Michael Scott, has also been charged with murder.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that a judge on Saturday ordered Baker held without bond. Scott was ordered held in lieu of $750,000 bail.
