Police charge Brittany Gosney with murder

Police say the 6-year-old James was last seen near Crawford Street in Middletown, Ohio.

A 6-year-old reported missing from Middletown was killed and thrown in the Ohio River, Middletown police said Sunday night. His mother is charged with murder.

James Robert Hutchinson was reporting missing Sunday morning by his mother, Brittany Gosney, 29, officials said in a statement.

"Sadly, upon further questioning of Brittany Gosney and her boyfriend, James Hamilton, they now say that James was killed in Preble County a few days ago," the statement said. "The child's body was brought back to Middletown, where they live, and later put into the Ohio River."

Middletown police said they are beginning the work needed to recover his body from the river.

"The river is very high and treacherous, so we will not be disclosing the exact location in hopes of avoiding another tragic incident," police said.
