Man charged in death of girlfriend’s 1-year-old

Long View police have charged 25-year-old William Howard Lail with murder in connection with the death of his girlfriend’s 18-month-old son.

Authorities Friday found the boy’s body and his 3-year-old sister, who was suffering from burn injuries, at a Long View residence in Catawba County.

First responders had been called to the home for a reported cardiac arrest.

Detectives had not released information on the extent of the 3-year-old girl’s injuries. She was taken to Frye Medical Center for treatment.

The boyfriend was supervising the children for their mother, who was not home when police were called to the house.
