Belleville, IL (KMOX) – 8 months after a 2-and-a-half year old Belleville boy dies, investigators have now filed charges against his mother’s live-in boyfriend.

Kane Friess was taken by the couple to St. Elizabeth’s hospital in April of this year. He was flown to a St. Louis hospital where he died. Investigators say the child suffered head trauma.

24-year-old Gyasi Campbell is being sought on First Degree Murder charges.

The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department says the investigation took time to get expert medical examination reports.
