Fabian Garrett-Garcia died while under the care of his foster mother Chastity Alco-Siba-McKenzie.
She has now been indicted for second degree murder.
The three-year-old boy was sent to the hospital with numerous injuries in July of 2017.
Big Island police re-classified the case to murder after getting a second opinion on the autopsy.
Alco-Siba-McKenzie was then arrested, but released without being charged.
The attorney for the boy’s family says that they are relieved that justice can finally be served.
The family also has a pending lawsuit against the state and the contract provider, Catholic Charities.
