Friends and family buried a Tulsa toddler Monday after the boy was beat to death last week. Now his 19-year old mother faces murder charges.

21-month old Isaiah Clem was laid to rest Monday morning. Tulsa Police are still investigating his death. The story started last week with the arrest of Ashley Clem.

Clem reportedly confessed to shaking and beating her son after he went to the bathroom on the floor of their home. Police say she didn't take Isaiah to the hospital until the next morning. At the hospital, Isaiah was pronounced brain dead and taken off life support.

Ashley Clem is charged with first-degree murder.

Tulsa Police are still investigating whether anyone else was at the home at the time of the incident.
