Police believe that 2-year-old Madison Snead died after her mother’s live-in boyfriend covered her with blankets and sat on her until she stopped moving, Police Chief Tony Sullivan said Thursday.

The boyfriend – 33-year-old Silas Edward McCracken III – and the child’s mother, 25-year-old Sarah Louise Snead, have both been charged with second-degree murder in the toddler’s death and are being held without bond at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon, Sullivan said in a statement.
