A grand jury has indicted two people on capital murder charges in relation to the beating death of a 5-year-old Anniston boy last month.

the child's mother, India Latrice Kimble, 28, and her boyfriend, Vonta Montrell McClellan, 26, both of Anniston, each have a cash bond of $1 million. The two were charged July 30 with the capital murder of Gregory Caver and indicted Aug. 16, according to online court records which became available today. Calhoun County District Attorney Brian McVeigh said a cash bond requires the defendant to pay that entire amount to be released from jail.

Police say Caver was beaten with a belt severely enough to cause his death because he wet his bed. Caver was reportedly having trouble breathing on July 26 at a home on the 2400 block of Wilmer Avenue. The boy was taken to Stringfellow Memorial Hospital and later airlifted to Children’s Hospital of Birmingham, where he died.

Kimble’s and McClellan’s indictments state that they intentionally caused the death of Caver by causing blunt force trauma to the head and body by beating the child with a belt or belt-like object, according to court records. The indictment noted that Kimble failed to prevent the offense and that both defendants assisted in the killing.

McClellan and Kimble were in the Calhoun County Jail today. Both are scheduled for arraignment Oct. 17, in which the indictments will be read and they will plead guilty or not guilty.

Neither defendant has retained a lawyer, court records showed today.
