30-year-old Carlton Mathis died in the Houston County Jail while awaiting trial in the death of his baby son whose body was found in a hotel room freezer.
An autopsy will be performed to determine how Mathis died. His son died after ingesting meth and officials say his parents then stuffed him in a freezer in a hotel room.
The child’s mother, Amanda Oakes, pleaded guilty earlier this week to charges of manslaughter and corpse abuse. She was sentenced to life in prison.
