HARTSELLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama woman has been charged in the killing of her 8-year-old son, who was found with a knife protruding from his chest, investigators said.

Jennifer Nicole Long, 41, of Hartselle, is charged with capital murder in the death of her son, the Morgan County sheriff's office said in a statement. Investigators said they discovered the grisly scene Thursday morning when they responded to a 911 call about a reported stabbing, the sheriff's office said.
