MONROE TWP. — The aunt of an apparently autistic boy who drowned last week in a lake near their home has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday.

Felicia Tucker, 26, of 12th Avenue was released on her own recognizance after the charge was filed, prosecutor’s office spokesman Bernie Weisenfeld said.

Tucker was looking after her nephew, Joshua Moore, on Aug. 1 when he slipped out of her home near Victory Lake.
