Boy’s remains encased in concrete

MONCKS CORNER — A South Carolina toddler’s remains have been found encased in concrete in a trash bin, and a man and his girlfriend have been charged in the boy’s death.

Investigators were awaiting a DNA test before positively identifying the boy as 2-year-old Rodricus Williams, but Berkeley County Sheriff Wayne DeWitt said Thursday the body matched the description given to police when Rodricus was reported missing in Charleston Tuesday night.

Sheriff DeWitt said Roger Williams, 29, and Grace Nichole Trotman have been charged with homicide by child abuse.
