No bond for mom accused of killing son by putting him in fridge

Bond has been denied for a mother charged with killing her infant son by putting him in the refrigerator for several hours.

A magistrate judge made that determination during a brief hearing Tuesday for 27-year-old Angela Blackwell. She is charged with homicide by child abuse, and it will be up to a circuit court judge to determine if she can be released from jail on bond.

Blackwell appeared in court with a public defender. Her next court date is Nov. 10.

Blackwell was arrested Monday. Deputies say she was at her home February 27 when she put her 4-day-old son in the refrigerator and shut the door. After three hours, she took him out and sought medical attention.

Chester County Coroner Terry Tinker says William David Blackwell died from hypothermia and asphyxiation.
