Funeral is Set for Four Year Old Boy

A funeral is set for Friday in Livingston for a four-year-old boy who authorities say was strangled and buried by his mother in a shallow grave behind the family's trailer home.

Tabitha Boone is charged with capital murder in the September death of her son, Tony. Polk County Sheriff's Lieutenant Craig Finegan says Boone told authorities she grabbed her son by the throat and threw him across the room after he had repeated fits. The 25-year-old mother was pregnant at the time with her youngest daughter, who is now in protective custody, along with another daughter.
