Detectives Conducting Homicide Investigation

The Delaware State Police have arrested a 51-year-old grandmother for the murder of her 3-year-old grandson.

At approximately 8:38 a.m. Tuesday September 27, 2016, Delaware State Police and Kent County Paramedics responded to a residence located in the unit block of Skinner Lane after Angela M. (Mossinger) Bingham, 51 of Felton, called 9-1-1 to report that she wanted to do harm to herself and that she had killed her grandson last week. Bingham left the house during the 9-1-1 call and was located walking near the intersection of Reeves Crossing and South DuPont Highway (US13) where she was detained by an officer with the Felton Police Department. Paramedics and troopers made entry into the house where a deceased child was located in a bedroom in a state of decomposition.

Bingham was eventually transported by EMS to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she was examined and released to the custody of the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit. She was taken back to Troop 3 where she was charged with Murder 1st and incarcerated at Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution without bail.

The Delaware Division of Forensic Science was contacted and removed the young male victim, who has been identified as Rilan M. Everett, to conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Detectives are continuing their investigation by conducting interviews and collecting evidence to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident.
