Child Found Dead Mother Charged With Murder

Largo, Fla.(970 WFLA)-A Pinellas County child that was the subject of an Amber Alert is dead, and his mother is facing charges.  The body of two-year-old Jordan Belliveau was found Tuesday afternoon in the woods behind the Largo Sports Complex.    

Jordans mother , 21 year old Charisse Stinson claimed that Jordan was kidnapped by a man who offered her and her son a ride and then knocked her unconscious. 

But in the police affidavit released this morning,  Stinson admits that she  hit Jordan  with the  back of her hand so hard that he hit the wall, and began having  seizures that continued through the night and died. 

She then carried him into the woods where she  left his body.  She's due in court at 1:30 this afternoon.

Investigators and neighbors spent more than 60 hours searching the woods and waterways, and Largo Police Chief Jeff Undestad says it's an extremely difficult and emotional time for those involved.  

Heartbroken friends, and relatives will come together to commemorate the life of Jordan today at 5:00, his uncle will host an event at Largo's Highland Rec Center to thank those who volunteered their time to search for the boy.  A prayer vigil is scheduled for Saturday at the site where Jordan's body was found near Lake Ave. and McMullen Road.
