The caretaker of 4-year-old Myls Dobson, who authorities say suffered horrific abuse before his death, has been indicted.

Myls died last week and his funeral is set for Tuesday.

With his father in jail and his mother stripped of custody, Myls ended up in the care of 27-year-old Kryzie King.

Police say she burned the boy, beat him and starved him.

King has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment, but could face more serious charges when the cause of death is determined by the medical examiner.

She was indicted by a grand Jury late Wednesday afternoon.

Her case will be back in court February 5.

Meantime, a funeral for Myls will be held Tuesday at the First Corinthians Baptist Church in Harlem.

Arrangements are being made by his birth mother, who had lost custody of the child.

There is no word on whether his father, who is currently jailed in New Jersey, will be allowed to attend.
