CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Saturday, police found the body of a missing 6-month-old from Matthews in a Charlotte cemetery. Monday, the boy's mother was expected to appear in court on a robbery charge. 

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Tamara Brown robbed a 53-year-old man outside of the Walmart on Galleria Boulevard around 9:20 p.m. on Friday.   

Around 10 p.m. Friday, Brown was located by CMPD officers, arrested and charged with robbery and assaulting a government official.

Brown missed her court appearance on Monday on the robbery charge because she was involuntarily committed.

Saturday morning, CMPD confirmed a body found at Sharon Memorial Park in southeast Charlotte was that of missing 6-month-old Chi-Liam Cody Brown-Erickson. 

The boy and his mother, identified by police as 30-year-old Tamara Jernel Brown, were announced as missing around 7 p.m. Friday night by the Matthews Police Department.
