Birth mother blames adoptive mother for boy's murder

Click Title For Full Article:

Adoptive mother Gloria Grayson is facing first-degree murder charges for the death of 5-year-old Kevin Michael King.
The birth mother, Kawanna Adkins, is now demanding answers and levelling serious allegations against Grayson. Adkins said Wednesday that she was worried about the care the boy was getting.
"He was a sweet kid, (and) I don't know why she killed him," Adkins said. "It really makes me mad."
Adkins said the child, who she named Daniel, was put into protective custody in 2004 when he was 9 months old. Adkins said she and the child's father hadn't been getting along.
Two years later, the boy was placed into Grayson's foster home, and Grayson adopted him later that year.
On Sunday, police say the child was found unresponsive on the bathroom floor of Grayson's home on the 5900 block of Spokane Avenue. Grayson called 911, and the boy was taken to the hospital, where he died.
