Mother charged in connection to son’s death

On August 4, 2009, Sacramento County Sheriffs Department Child Abuse Bureau detectives arrested 25-year-old Amber Christine Ingram in connection to the June 17, 2009, death of her 5-year-old son. Ingrams 31-year-old boyfriend, Eduardo Zamora, Jr. was arrested  on June 18th and charged with murder.

During the course of their investigation, detectives developed information which led them to believe Ingram was complicit in the death of her son. A warrant was issued, and Ingram was arrested at her place of employment earlier this morning. Ingram was booked (see booking photo below) into the Sacramento County Main Jail on the charge of felony child abuse. She is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on August 6, 2009, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 62.
