Additional charges have been filed in connection to the death of Colton Turner, the Cedar Park 2 year old found dead in a shallow grave in Southeast Austin in September.
Police said Colton’s mother, Meagan Work, is charged with injury to a child and injury to a child by omission, both first-degree felonies. Her boyfriend, Michael Turner is charged with injury to a child by omission, a first-degree felony. Bond is set at $750,000 on each charge.
Investigators said Work and Turner admitted to burying Colton on July 8. Police did not find him until September.
A few days later, police said a witness who worked next door to Turner, Robert Coe, came forward and told officers he saw Work hitting and shaking Colton in the parking lot on July 7, then slamming his head into the side of a truck. Officers said,”What he saw haunted him, especially once he found out the child died.”
