A West Virginia woman was recently sentenced to 6 years in prison for placing fecal matter in her son’s IV drip.
Having been born with Hirschsprung’s disease, the 9 year old boy was being treated at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio. Hirschsprung’s disease affects the bowels and requires many surgeries, and in this case the use of a colostomy bag.
In an apparent attempt to get attention for her son, Fluty reportedly placed feces in her son’s IV drip which caused him to spike a fever in January of this year. Images were found that showed evidence of the mother placing something in her son’s IV. This was later determined to be fecal matter.
The woman pled guilty to the charges. According to authorities, the boy is back in West Virginia and is staying with family.
