FAIRFAX, Va. – A Virginia mom admitted to injecting her son together with her own blood after she was caught on digital camera within the 5-yr-previous’s hospital room, in accordance with WJLA.
Elizabeth Malone, 28, allegedly did it to get hospital employees members to “respond faster” to her son, based on documents.
The boy is disabled and unable to speak, in line with WRC-TV.
The incident happened in April 2018 at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
A digital camera was secretly set up within the boy’s room after Malone brought the child to the hospital seven occasions, elevating the suspicions of hospital staff, in line with the documents. On two of these visits the boy was bleeding.
Malone used the hospital’s medical supplies to draw blood from her right arm and inject it into her son, in line with police.
Prosecutors stated the boy suffered infections and high fevers after the injections, in accordance with WRC-TV. The 5-yr-previous’s situation has improved enormously since his mom’s incarceration, and prosecutors say he’s now going to high school.
Malone pleaded responsible to youngster abuse and might be sentenced in July.
