CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis mother who was accused of killing her 13 month old son faces another court hearing in Clayton Friday.  Shelby Dasher, 20, is accused of beating her son Tyler to death last November because he would not stop crying.

She falsely reported that the child had been abducted. But she later led investigators to his body after admitting she dumped him in a nearby cemetery.  She’s being held on $500,000 bond.
