RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Richmond woman has been charged again in the death of her two-year-old son.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Richmond authorities have brought back charges of murder and child neglect against Ashley Williams.

The same charges were withdrawn in January because investigators were awaiting a cause of death.

The medical examiner's office has determined the cause to be malnutrition and dehydration.

The child, D'Sean Williams, weighed only 14 pounds when he died last May.
