A West Virginia woman accused of deliberately making her 9-year-old son sick by contaminating his IV at a Cincinnati hospital could change her plea at an Ohio court hearing.

Candida Fluty is set for a plea hearing on Tuesday in a Hamilton County court where she previously pleaded not guilty to felonious assault and child endangering charges.

Prosecutors say Fluty’s son has a condition affecting the bowels that has required numerous surgeries. Authorities say fecal matter was put in his IV and caused his fever to spike while he was hospitalized in January.
