SEARCY, AR (KAIT) - The mother of a Region 8 toddler who was found dead is not happy with the charges filed in the case.
Jeffery Clifton pleaded no contest in the death of 2-year-old Malik Drummond.
Malik vanished in November 2014 from his home in Searcy. His remains were found in December 2015 in rural Jackson County.
Clifton's ex-girlfriend, Lesley Marcotte, is charged with hindering apprehension.
According to ABC affiliate KATV, Malik's mother, Tonya Drummond, is not happy with that charge.
"They let it go on for so many years. Why just let it stop now? Why not let it keep on pushing? Y'all out here looking for this little boy, spent all of y'all's precious time, time that you could have been doing something else. The truth needs to come out," Drummond told KATV.
White County Prosecutor Rebecca Reed McCoy believes the charges are fair.
