Mom charged with murder when son's remains found in car after 10 years

(FOX News) - A Virginia woman was charged with murder after her son's remains were found in her car more than 10 years after he was last seen alive, according to documents revealed Tuesday.

Tonya Slaton, of Richmond, was indicted Feb. 1 in Hampton Circuit Court on a charge of second-degree murder in the death of her son, Quincy Jamar Davis, according to the indictment. The document alleges that Slaton killed Davis between July 24, 2004 and July 24, 2005. The Virginian-Pilot reported that Davis would’ve been 14 or 15 years old at the time of his death.

Davis' remains were found in June in Slaton's car when she was driving on Interstate 64. Slaton was pulled over by a Virginia State Trooper conducting a traffic stop when he noticed a strong odor coming from her car. Davis’ body was found in the back of her Ford Mustang, according to the paper.

The cause of death has still yet to be determined. Davis was never reported missing.
