AFFTON, Mo. (AP) -- Services are set for early next week for a 13-month-old suburban St. Louis boy who authorities say was fatally beaten by his mother.
   
A St. Louis County judge on Thursday entered a not guilty plea on behalf of 20-year-old Shelby Dasher of Affton, a day after she was charged with second-degree murder in the death of son Tyler.
   
Dasher on Tuesday reported the boy missing from his crib, but the boy's body was found a few hours later in a field near the family's home.
   
Prosecutors say Dasher confessed to striking the boy out of frustration over his crying.
   
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Tyler's services will be at 10:30 a.m. Monday at St. Mark Catholic Church in Affton.
