BEAUFORT, S.C. (WOLO)— The Beaufort Co. Sheriff’s Office says a woman is charged with the death of a six year-old.

On May 19 at around 1:25 a.m. deputies responded to an address on Sam Doyle Drive, Saint Helena Island after receiving a 911 call reporting a woman who was attempting to drown her child.

Jamie Bradley Brun, 37, was detained and deputies located deceased 6 year-old Mackaya Bradley-Brun. An investigation revealed Brun most likely drowned the child, say authorities.
