CLEVELAND: A prosecutor says the boyfriend of a woman charged with murder in the death of her developmentally disabled 5-year-old son who was found buried in a Cleveland backyard also has been charged with murder.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said Wednesday a grand jury indicted Christopher Rodriguez, 36, on charges including murder, felonious assault and gross abuse of a corpse in the death of Jordan Rodriguez. Authorities in December found the boy’s body buried in bags in the yard of the child’s home.

The boy’s mother, Larissa Rodriguez, 34, pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges earlier this month.
