The mother of a 3-year-old Tahlequah boy who died in November has been charged with murder in his death.
Police found Dakota Sanders' body in a room in a boarding house in Tahlequah. They say he'd been either strangled or suffocated.
They arrested the parents, Buford Ellison and Jeri Sanders, but Ellison died of cancers a few days later.
Police say instead of immediately calling 911, Sanders took Dakota to a babysitter at the rooming house. The neighbor thought he was asleep, but had a manager call 911 when he was still unresponsive a couple of hours later.
