Police say a central Iowa mother has died after first killing her 2-year-old son.

They say she killed her 2-year-old son Gavin sometime earlier Sunday morning inside their Indianola apartment.

Police say Kelly Sly had been upset about custody arrangements the day before.

Indianola police say they had spoken to her Saturday because she violated a court order by contacting her estranged husband.
