DETROIT (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a social worker and her boss with manslaughter and child abuse, alleging they neglected to do everything they should have to protect a 3-year-old Detroit boy who died.

Elaina Brown and her supervisor, Kelly Williams, were arraigned Monday on charges of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree child abuse and neglect in the death of Aaron Minor. Their attorneys didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Prosecutors allege that after identifying Aaron as vulnerable, Brown and Williams failed to provide a safety plan, ask police to conduct a safety check or file a juvenile court petition.

The boy’s decomposing body was found in his mother’s apartment in June while she was in a hospital psychiatric unit. She was charged with murder in August.

Brown and Williams have been suspended with pay.

    Larry,
    You never cease to amaze me. Your hatred and ignorance is similar to that of an infection that has no cure. As much as I want to talk down to you, or subtlely insult you, or list the number of degrees that I have, or share with you how amazing our child is and list all that he has accomplished, I will not. I am going to show our miracle this post, explain to him that there are people like you in the world, and then we are going to pray, and ask that in 2017 God will deliver you from this hatred. I hope you and yours have the best Thanksgiving holiday that He has to offer. I do hope that you change before you meet the God that I graciously serve. I love you

  2. Many do not understand what happens when you work someplace with limitted resources. It is no excuse, but you aregiven excess amounts if work which must be completed within a certain amount of time. They probably had other childr n deem d wors iff rhat had to be addressed. If they ar arr stedthen the higher ups need to be arrested also. I hope rhey have some documentarion to prove they reported they could not address this issue due to limitted resources. Our Social Service workers need a o bethe ones out protesting o ensure all children can be helped with more resources.

    Suspended with pay???? These two ugly MF’s don’t deserve to ever have access to any child again. How the hell do you look at a vulnerable, helpless 3 year old baby and turn a blind eye to him being abused. Send them to prison and don’t provide any security for the. I’m a mother of 4 and if I see any child hurt, you best believe I’m stepping in!

  4. How are these two POS being punished-with being suspended and paid??????

    Lock these cows up-deny them BAIL. Take this case to trial-send their asses to JAIL.

    However, no matter how much time they serve-they cannot bring back that innocent
    three year old child they allowed to be abused and killed.

  5. And in other news, humongous numbers of people around the world traipse through the streets protesting Donald Trump’s Presidential win. An act of symbolism that won’t make one slip of a difference in the end. Who is marching for Little Aaron and all the other Little Aarons around the nation? On this, we could make a difference. But then, it wouldn’t exactly fit our agenda of hate and division. Rest easy Little Aaron.

    • I’m referring to the “mother”, who, yes is black. Free pass to her because she is claiming mental instability. These two women are social workers in Detroit, the armpit of our country. Can you imaging the hundreds of cases these women are trying to manage? In a city where shitty, selfish, and irresponsible parenting is the norm? Where is the family of this woman who let her child die? Nowhere to be found unless there is a chance for a $ lawsuit. Find someone else to blame for our dysfunction, that’s how we roll.

      • What would compel a seemingly rational, educated person to take the time to reply to anything posted by this agitator? This is the way he entertains himself. You just provided him with more fun.
