CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A headstone has been placed at the grave of an infant who died after being carried into a creek near Socastee.

Local media outlets report that the gravestone was paid for by community residents and was placed Wednesday at the grave of 5-month-old Grace Carlson Santa Cruz at a cemetery in Conway.

The child’s mother, 33-year-old Sarah Lane Toney, has been charged with homicide by child abuse. Toney told authorities she was carrying her daughter across a rain-swollen creek in November when the child was washed away.
