Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said Thursday that a mother has been charged with murder in the death of her 3-month-old son.

Chaz Bush, 29, was arrested after an interview with CMPD detectives at police headquarters uptown. In addition to the murder charge, she faces a count of felony child neglect resulting in serious injury. Bush was being held Thursday night under $225,000 bond.

Police said they were called to the 300 block of Harrison Street, northwest of uptown off Rozzelles Ferry Road, on Tuesday afternoon. They found Majestic Kincaid Bush, who was born in October, unresponsive.

Paramedics pronounced the baby dead at the scene.

CMPD said homicide detectives, the Medical Examiner’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office consulted on the case and “determined that the infant was neglected which led to his death.”
