AMHERST, OH (WOIO) - One month after burying her 3-year old son, a 22-year old Amherst woman is locked up on domestic charges.

Sweaney is the mother of Jesse Crum.

He was severely injured last month and later died. Officers reported seeing bruises all over his body.

Charges have yet to filed in connection with the child's death.

Sweaney was taken to the Lorain County Jail.
