    A babysitter arrested in the death of a 2-year-old boy has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge.

    A grand jury in Virginia Beach indicted Brenda Kay Garner, 35, on Monday, reports the Virginian-Pilot.

    Garner was arrested Nov. 17 in the death of Garrett King.

    Police have said the boy's mother dropped him off at Garner's home on Nov. 14. Police and emergency personnel went to the home that afternoon in response to a report of an unconscious child. The child died at a hospital the next day.

    Officers arrested Garner on a felony charge of child abuse and neglect. She remains in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.
