NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – A woman was charged Tuesday in the death of her 1-year-old son who was found unconscious a day earlier in the bathroom of a midtown Manhattan restaurant.
Latisha Fisher, 35, faces charges of second-degree murder in the death of Gavriel Ortiz-Fisher. She is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
Fisher had a painful expression but said nothing to reporters as police led her out of the Midtown South Precinct station house in handcuffs Tuesday morning, CBS2’s Janelle Burrell reported.
She and her son were found in the bathroom at 5 Boro Burger on Sixth Avenue near 36th Street at about 2:45 p.m. Monday.
Police say a worker at the restaurant became concerned after noticing that the woman and child were in the bathroom for an unusual amount of time.
