Warrant Issued for Mother Accused of Deliberately Making Son Sick


 A woman accused of deliberately making her 9-year-old son sick by contaminating his IV with fecal matter at a Cincinnati hospital is being sought on an arrest warrant after she missed a court hearing.

A Hamilton County court official says Candida Fluty, 35, of Kermit, West Virginia, was scheduled for a hearing Thursday in Cincinnati. She is charged with felonious assault and child endangering.

The judge says he will withdraw the warrant if Fluty attends a hearing now set for Friday. A court official says the defense attorney indicated Fluty apparently was attending another court hearing Thursday in West Virginia.

Authorities say fecal matter put in the boy’s IV caused his fever to spike.
