    ATLANTA -- Two sisters have been charged with killing one of their babies. Fourteen-month-old Quintaveous Wright died after he was found not breathing. Atlanta police believe his 16-year-old mother and his aunt, Tameka Hardeman, are responsible.

    Police have not yet released why the two women were charged or how the baby died. But Channel 2 obtained a copy of the police report and it revealed the baby had a wound on his leg and that investigators believe foul play was involved.

    A relative of the family is sticking up for the baby’s mom and aunt. “They’re good parents. They’re really good parents,” said the relative who did not want to be identified. "I really don't think they should be charged with murder because I don't think they would harm the kids. I've never seen them hit them, do no harm to them, in no type of form or fashion."

    Wright was found not breathing at his northwest Atlanta home Monday morning and was rushed to Hughes-Spalding Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Since then, Atlanta police have charged his 16-year-old mother and 30-year-old aunt, Hardeman, with his death.

    "When I got ready to get my kids ready, he was up that morning. He was happy and jolly. And all of the sudden, I was getting ready to come outside, she came outside screaming and hollering saying, ‘They killed my baby,’" the relative told Channel 2’s Rachel Kim.

    The relative said the baby’s paternal grandmother had him the night before and has been wanting custody because she believes his mother is too young. Authorities have not yet released any details as to why the mother and her sister were charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
