WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The mother of a 2-year-old boy who was found dead in a Wichita hotel has been arrested in his death.

Wichita police spokesman Charley Davidson said Thursday that 23-year-old Kimberly Compass faces a possible felony murder charge in the death of Zayden Jaynesahkluah.

The boy was found dead May 31 at the Sunset Motel in Wichita where he lived with his mother.

Davidson said in a news release that new information from the Regional Forensic Science Center led to the arrest. He did not elaborate. Information on how the boy died has not been released.

Davidson said the investigation is continuing.

State Rep. Michael Capps, a Wichita Republican, said when the boy died that state welfare officials had previous contact with Zayden's family.
