Investigators said Narges Shafeirad, 33, overdosed her son with Benadryl allergy medicine, then took his dead body and started driving.

Police said she poured gas and started a fire in the car, then crashed it with her dead son inside.

Shafeirad claimed the crash and fire was an accident, police said.

Investigator said Shafeirad’s motive had to do with her divorce and a custody battle with the boy’s father.

Shafeirad was burned over 40 percent of her body, police say, but they don’t believe she intended to kill herself. She was arrested and hospitalized under police guard for burns.

“We’re adding more jobs as we bring in new stores, and of course the development that’s happened around us,” said Sharon Campbell, who is the general manager of the outlets.

The future Alta Berewick Apartments are part of that development.

Construction started on the 266-unit luxury apartment complex months ago, according to Woods Partners LLC.

The complex is expected to be complete by next summer, but developers said they’ll begin leasing some units as early as January.

Alta Berewick is just part of a much bigger plan that also involves the Town Center at Berewick.

The first phase includes a Harris Teeter, Walgreens and additional space for retail, restaurants and a hotel, according to the community’s website. The first phase is expected to be complete by summer 2016.

“I think it’s good for our community,” said Carmen Williams who has lived in Steele Creek for 15 years. “This development is keeping a lot of people employed and hopefully our properties are going to go up.”
