MEADE CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Charges have been amended for two people in the death investigation of five-year-old Braydon Irwin.

Authorities started investigating when Braydon died at a hospital in Harrison County Hospital after a 911 call came in about the child not breathing.

Preliminary reports say the cause of death was blunt force trauma

Braydon’s mother, Kayla Irwin, and her boyfriend, Daniel Clemans, now each face a first-degree manslaughter charge, according to court officials.

They were originally facing complicity to murder.

Officials tell us their cases are being moved to a grand jury. They say their cases will likely not be heard until March 14.

Their bond remains at $250,000 each.
