Bail set at $2M for mom charged in missing son’s death
MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) - Bail has been set at $2 million for the mother of a 6-year-old boy who police say died when she tried to abandon him and his two older siblings at a park and drive away but he grabbed for a door and was dragged.
Twenty-nine-year-old Brittany Gosney pleaded not guilty during her arraignment Monday to 16 counts, including murder, corpse abuse and endangering children.
Her 42-year-old boyfriend, James Hamilton, also pleaded not guilty to the 15 counts he faces, including abuse of a corpse, evidence tampering and child endangerment.
Bail for Hamilton was set at $750,000.
Both he and Gosney were represented by court-appointed attorneys who did not comment on the charges their clients face.
