ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - The final autopsy report on a 2-month-old found dead in a ditch in April states the baby died from blunt force trauma to the head.

The body of Prince Javeion Deshaun Brown was found across the street from his home in the 1200 block of East Mt. Pleasant Zachary Road in Zachary on April 10.

He had been reported missing earlier that morning by his father.

Sabrina Maiden, 22, the infant's mother, was arrested the same day the boy's body was discovered. She is charged with first-degree murder.

The baby's father, Willie Brown Jr., 32, was also arrested. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute Schedule I narcotics and possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said physical evidence on the scene indicated the child was left in an area of shallow water and evidence indicated the child was alive at the time he was abandoned.

Detectives detained both the mother and the father for questioning during the search for the little boy.

They obtained a search warrant for the home prior to the discovery of the infant.

Investigators said they found two handguns and 260 grams of marijuana inside.
