Affton, Mo (KSDK) -- A Grand jury indicted an Affton mother on Wednesday who police said confessed to beating her son to death.

Shelby Dasher is scheduled to be arraigned on March 7.

Police said Dasher confessed last November to hitting her 13-month-old son, Tyler, repeatedly because he would not stop crying and go back to sleep. They said she then dumped his body near the River Des Peres.

Dasher, 20, is in jail charged with second-degree murder.

Earlier this week, Dasher's public defender filed a motion that the second-degree murder charge against her should be dismissed. She was scheduled to be in court Thursday, but it was cancelled following the indictment.
