A West Virginia woman accused of deliberately making her 9-year-old son sick by contaminating his IV with fecal matter at a Cincinnati hospital will go to trial before a jury this summer.

A judge in Hamilton County on Tuesday set an Aug. 3 date for Candida Fluty’s trial on felonious assault and child endangering charges. A court official said the 35-year-old woman from Kermit, West Virginia, wasn’t in court Tuesday.

Fluty rejected a proposed plea agreement last month and opted to go to trial. Her attorney hasn’t returned calls seeking comment.

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.
