Cuyahoga County prosecutors will ask for the death penalty in their case against Angel Glass, the Cleveland woman accused of beating her five-year-old son to death.
Glass, 24, is in the county jail on a $1 million bond, charged with aggravated murder in the death of her son, Arshon Baker.
A Cuyahoga County grand jury indicted her Tuesday on two counts of murder, two counts of aggravated murder, one count of felonious assault and one count of endangering children.
By law, prosecutors can seek the death penalty for those charged with murder if the victim is less than 13 years old.
The police report says Glass told officers that she put her son in the corner to punish him for lifting her dress, but he wouldn’t stay there, so she began hitting him on the tops of his hands with a hairbrush. When that had no effect, the report says, she began beating the boy all over his body with a belt. As the boy tried to run away, she told police she grabbed his leg and he fell, hit his head on a dresser and went limp. She tried to revive him by pouring a glass of water on his head. Then she called 911.
