A 12-year-old Texas boy accused of killing an infant by throwing him to the floor has been released from juvenile detention and into the custody of a relative. A judge on Tuesday ordered the boy released until his trial. The boy will live with an aunt and be supervised 24 hours a day, including when he is at school. Officials say the 12-year-old was left alone March 12 at a Houston home with a group of younger children by his mother and the mom of the other kids when he threw 10-month-old Deandre Washington to the floor. Deandre died two days later. His injuries included two skull fractures.
