A Harper Woods mother has been jailed on $1 million bond after she was arraigned Wednesday on first degree child abuse charges in the death of her baby boy. According to medical reports, eight-month old George Wilbur had numerous old and new injuries, including skull fractures.

He died October 12th.

His mother, 20-year old Delniece Williams, is charged with first degree child abuse, but could face murder charges once a medical examiner’s report is complete.

Willams broke down sobbing, when asked by the judge if she understood the charges against her.

The baby’s father, George Wilbur Sr., said he thought he saw signs of abuse three weeks ago.

“When I got him and he had the bite marks, I told Child Protective Services that I feared for my son’s life, and they proceeds to still send my son back over there,” Wilbur said.

Wilbur was asked who he think abused his son, because Williams had taken up a new boyfriend.

“I pretty much think it was both. It was … She’s probably covering for him, but in the end she’s the only one who’s going to be doing time for it,” he said.

Williams has asked for a court-appointed lawyer. She will be back in 37th District Court next week.

    This baby boy was my great,great nephew. I as well as my family are still dealing with the fact that his mother let this happen to one of God’s little angels. If they didn’t want hiim his father my great nephew would of taken him no questions asked. He tried to save his son and a broken down system prevented him from saving his son. What type of world is this where we hand babies back to their murders. We need to take a good look at the social woeker’s and weed out those that are on the job just for a check and not because they really care about the little one’s they serve. As for the one’s who killed him ( They know who they are). I pray that everytime you close your eye’s to rest you will see Baby George’s ( our Pork Chop ) face. To my family I wish I could be there in body, but know that your family here in North Carolina and in New york are with you in spirit. Keep your heads up and as a family we will get through this in time. We love all of you. XOXOXOXO’s Your Sister and Auntie. Jean
