More than a year after the tragic death of a 10-month-old boy in Fort Worth, his mom has been charged with murder.

Emergency crews were called out to Shakira Bickerstaff's home last August when her boyfriend found 10-month-old Lamont unresponsive on the couch. Bickerstaff told police her son had fallen off the bed.

The infant had several abrasions, scars, and bruises.

However, just a few days ago, Bickerstaff admitted to police that she shook her son, hit his head on a table, and then covered his mouth to stop him from crying.

She's now charged with capital murder.
