An Augusta woman and a War­renton man were charged with murder Tuesday in the January death of an infant.

Frances Nicole Howard, 23, of the 3300 block of Kenny Road, and Matthew Craig Reynolds, 20, of the 100 block of Stony Road, were arrested and taken to the Richmond County jail, according to jail records.

On Jan. 5, police received a call about a 1-month-old boy not breathing at Ms. Howard’s home, according to a police report filed at the time.

Ambulance workers began doing CPR on the infant, who was taken to Doctors Hospital, the report states. The report doesn’t state when the child died, but the case was turned over to an investigator at the time and was considered a “suspicious situation.”
