Platte County jurors to hear case of Columbia tot's gruesome death

According to the Missourian, they're going to use Platte County jurors for the trial of Keyonda Lumpkins, a Columbia woman facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of her son, 2-year-old Cortez Johnson. (Cortez's dad was charged, too, but his trial won't start for a few months.) The little boy died from blunt force trauma, though his body showed signs of several burns, suggesting that he'd been abused over a long period of time.
