In re D.S. (Cal. Ct. App. - March 24, 2020)

A little dependency case from down here in San Diego:

"12-year-old D.S [] was living with his paternal aunt (Aunt), later determined to be his presumed mother. The Agency alleged that D.S.'s father was deceased, Mother had previously caused the death of another minor, and Aunt was no longer able to care for D.S. As discussed in the detention report, Mother's parental rights were terminated after she was charged and convicted of killing D.S.'s brother. D.S. had been placed in the care of his father, who subsequently died suddenly in March 2018. Aunt assumed care for D.S., but reported to the Agency that she could not currently care for D.S. due to her own health issues."
