A Rockwell couple have been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the December death of their 7-day-old son.

A Rowan County grand jury returned a true bill of indictment against Bryant Chapman and Amber Revis, both of 134 Wingate Lane, Rockwell, and the couple were arrested Wednesday by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Department.

Each was placed under $15,000 bond on the involuntary manslaughter charges.

Their son, Tanner Chapman, was found unresponsive by his father on the morning of Dec. 7 as Chapman was leaving for work, according to earlier reports.

The infant had been in bed with his parents.

Also in December, authorities charged Shannon Elizabeth Anderson, 22, of 6125 Faith Road, Salisbury, with second-degree murder in the death of Matthew Gabriel Brown, her 26-day-old son.

The Brown baby’s death occurred Nov. 30. Anderson had told the Sheriff’s Department she fell asleep on a couch with her baby, who was later found unresponsive.

Autopsies were performed on both infants.
