30-year-old Sacha Brown of Jonesboro will be back in an Illinois courtroom in July for her role in the death of a 4-year-old boy. Brown was arrested December 12th and is charged with 1st-degree murder, aggravated battery, and concealment of a homicide. She is not the child’s mother. According to deputies, she allegedly killed the boy to cover up a skull fracture he suffered while in her care. An autopsy on 4-year-old Justin Hepburn revealed the injuries. Brown will next appear before Judge William Thurston July 11th in Jonesboro for a hearing. Her trial date still has not been set. Brown remains jailed on a 250-thousand-dollar bond.
