      The mother of a 5-year-old Anniston boy who died last week and her boyfriend have been charged with capital murder in connection with the death.

      India Kimble, 28, was arrested by US Marshals in Mobile Tuesday afternoon for her role in the death of her son, Gregory Caver, who was found unresponsive and having difficulty breathing at his home on Wilmer Avenue Friday, July 26. Caver was transported to the nearby Stringfellow Memorial Hospital before later being airlifted to Children's of Alabama in Birmingham, where he later died.

      A preliminary autopsy report listed the boy's cause of death as homicide, and investigators obtained capital murder warrants against Kimble, as well as her 26-year-old boyfriend, Vonta McClellan, who was arrested last weekend on child abuse charges stemming from a separate incident involving a 7-year-old girl.

      Another woman, Secret Huguley, was also arrested with McClellan, in connection with the child abuse investigation. Huguley was charged with a misdemeanor charge of tampering with evidence.

      Family and friends have setup a memorial between Caver's home and a nearby church. A stuffed bear, cards and one of the boy's toys were placed on a cross honoring Caver.

      Gregory Caver, 5, died Friday, July 26, 2013 at Children's of Alabama.

      Kimble was booked into jail in Anniston around 3 a.m. Wednesday after police transported her from Mobile.

      "We would like to thank the US Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force Birmingham and Mobile Offices in their assistance with Kimble's apprehension." George said in a release.

      Anyone with any information regarding the case is urged to contact the Anniston Police Department Investigative Division at 256-238-1800.
