Jackson County Mother Found Guilty Of Killing Son, Faces Death Penalty

An Escatawpa woman was convicted Thursday in the death of her five-year-old son. 

Towander Broadhead was found guilty of capital murder in the 2004 beating death of her son Kenderick. The boy's body was found in Harrison County.

The trial took place in Vicksburg because of pre-trial publicity on the coast.

On Wednesday Broadhead's daughter testified that her mom beat her brother with a belt, a broomstick, a plastic rod and a book.

Towander Broadhead could be sentenced to death or life without parole.
