FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Prosecutors say they're ready for trial in the murder case of 2-year-old Jezaih King.

31-year-old Latisha Lawson appeared at a pre-trial conference Tuesday morning.

Lawson allegedly told police she killed her son in 2009 because she thought he was “demon possessed.”

She later hid his body in her closet for nearly a year.

Lawson's trial is scheduled to begin May 24th.
