Prosecutors: NJ mother arrested in death of 4-year-old son in South Bound Brook
A New Jersey mother has been charged with murder in the death of her 4-year-old son, prosecutors say. Police say they received a 911 call from Elina Gutti, 38, of South Bound Brook at around 2 :30 a.m. Saturday regarding unexplained injuries on her wrist.
Officers responded to the scene on Cedar Street where they located the child, Aiden Singhania, with severe lacerations. Emergency medical personnel attempted life-saving measures, but Singhania was pronounced dead at the scene. Gutti was transported to a hospital for medical evaluation by police. After an investigation, Gutti was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a knife. She will be transported to the Somerset County Jail once released from the hospital, pending a bail detention hearing.
