FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police charged a Felton woman with murder in the death of her 3-year-old grandson.

Around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, police and paramedics responded to a home on Skinner lane after a call from 51-year-old Angela Bingham. Police say Bingham called 9-1-1 to report that she wanted to do harm to herself and that she had killed her grandson last week.  

Police say Bingham left the house during the 9-1-1 call and was located walking near the intersection of Reeves Crossing and South DuPont Highway, where she was detained by an officer with the Felton Police Department.  When paramedics and troopers entered the home, they found the child dead in the bedroom.

Bingham was eventually transported by EMS to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she was examined and released to the custody of the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit.  She was taken back to Troop 3 where she was charged with 1st-degree Murder and incarcerated at Delores J. Baylor Women's Correctional Institution without bail.

The Delaware Division of Forensic Science was contacted and removed the young male victim, who has been identified as Rilan M. Everett, to conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Detectives are continuing their investigation by conducting interviews and collecting evidence to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident.
