Could be the logic board or the "mid-board" which houses the flex circuit going from the charger to the home button to the logic board.
If the battery has no charge (likely) and the flex circuit going from the charger isn't passing power then there is no way to charge, and the phone won't start.
Check the voltages on the battery with a volt meter to see if it has any charge.
if it's dead, then the only way to really check is to connect your logic board to a different mid board and try to charge/startup. The flex for the button/dock connector is available on ebay but changing it is a pain since you have to take off the display and there is a good probability that you'll crack the cover glass since it is glued to the mid-frame.
