The mother of a two-year-old who was strangled to death last week was arrested Monday and charged with the boy’s murder, police said.

On August 10, officers responded to a 911 call of an unconscious baby at 155-14 Jewel Avenue at the Pomonok Houses. When they arrived, officials found two-year-old Izayah Hall unresponsive, and he was transported to New York Hospital Queens where he was pronounced dead.

The following day, the boy’s death was ruled a homicide. According to the NYPD, at the scene the mother, Afriyie Gaspard, 29, claimed to have found him unconscious.
