Court documents indicate 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. The indictment alleges Slaton killed Davis between July 24, 2004, and July 24, 2005. The Virginian-Pilot reports ( ) that Davis would have been 14 or 15 years old at the time.

Human remains found in a vehicle Slaton was driving on Interstate 64 in Hampton in June were identified as Davis'. The medical examiner has not determined the cause of death.

Police say Davis was never reported missing.
