GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas (KBTX) A Galveston County prosecutor says the mother of 1-year-old Hazana Anderson has been indicted on a criminal charge related to the child's death.

Galveston County Chief Assistant Criminal District Attorney Matt Shawhan tells KBTX Tiaundra Christon was indicted last Thursday on one charge of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with the intent to impair a human corpse.

The Brazos County District Attorney's Office said Monday an indictment was still pending, and Tiaundra's case had been transferred to Galveston County courts for prosecution.

Investigators believe Christon and her boyfriend, Kenny Hewett, fatally injured the child at a Houston-area hotel last year and then disposed of her body in a Texas City lake.
