A second arrest has been made in the death of 2 year old Malakai Garrett.

Malakai was taken to a fire station on North Clinton back in November when he was unresponsive.  Malakai was declared dead a short time later.  His mother's boyfriend at the time, Mitchell Vanryn, was charged with murder and other death related charges. 

Today, officials have charged Malakai's mother, 26 year old Amber Garrett, with two counts of child neglect.
