Three people have been charged in Tazewell County for the death of an 8-month-old infant.

The boy was found dead Wednesday.

After executing four search warrants at two homes in the Richlands and Road Ridge areas, Star Adams, Monica Walker, and William Hilbert were all arrested.

Walker and Hilbert have been charged with causing serious injury to a child under the age of 18, which is a felony.

Adams has been charged with abandoning a child, which is also a felony.

All three are being held at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail without bond.

Additional charges are pending based on the results of the autopsy, according to the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office.
