Mother identified after deadly incident

CANTON, Ohio -- Authorities have identified a 14-month boy found dead in a northeast Ohio apartment and his mother, who they say was killed when she ran in front of a truck on an interstate highway in an adjacent county Thursday.

The Stark County coroner's chief investigator identified the baby found dead in Canton in Stark County on Thursday as Omoyele Gonzalez. Coroner's Chief Investigator Harry Campbell says the baby's autopsy results won't be released until Monday.

Campbell confirmed the mother as Kayelisa Martin. But he says authorities in Summit County, where she died, are investigating that death.

A Summit County's sheriff's release says the 20-year-old woman died when she was struck by a tractor-trailer after running onto Interstate 77. Summit County's medical examiner's office says autopsy results are pending.

Authorities continue to investigate.
