Mingo mother pleads not guilty to hospital room charges

A Mingo County mother pleaded not guilty Friday to charges she placed fecal matter in her son’s IV to make him sicker.
Candy Fluty was indicted last week on four felony counts, including two counts of felonious assault for an incident that allegedly happened at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
She was arraigned in Cincinnati on Friday and released on the same $50,000 bond she was given after an initial court appearance. Fluty was ordered once more to stay away from her children.
Prosecutors have said they don’t believe Fluty meant to kill her son, who suffers from Hirschsprung’s disease, which affects the colon.

A defense attorney told the judge that Fluty’s an unemployed mother who is a full-time student.
