CENTRE, Ala. (AP) - Five-year-old beating victim Geontae Glass will be buried Monday in Centre, Ala.
The boy's mother reported him missing a week ago, triggering a nationwide Amber Alert. She said he was asleep inside her car when it was taken from an Albertville convenience store.
The boy's body was found inside the car the next day.
Police believe the mother's boyfriend -- 31-year-old Kevin Towles --beat him to death and staged the abduction to cover up the crime.
Towles is charged with capital murder. The mother, 25-year-old Shalinda Glass, of Rainbow City, is charged with hindering prosecution.
