We have new information in the case of a mother accused of trying to kill her teenage son by drugging him and setting their apartment on fire.
41-year old Lamonica Hill was back in court this morning to find out if her attempted murder charge will go to a grand jury.
Hill pleaded not guilty to arson and attempted murder charges at her arraignment.
On Wednesday, her case went before a judge, and at one point, testimony became too much for the defendant Hill, visibly showing emotion at one point.
Lead investigator Capt. Carrie Bowling testified Hill's 12-year-old son told them in an interview that his mother gave him an excess amount of sleeping pills on three separate occasions, totaling 20 pills.
"He also indicated that he looked up what the medication was on his phone after she had given it to him the initial time to see what it was," said Bowling while on the stand.
Investigators say Hill admitted to setting a fire in one of the apartments rooms, claiming that she was sleep walking when she did it.
Bowling testified that her son was the one who made the call to 911 and also revealed another startling detail of that night.
"He indicated that he was awakened with Ms. Hill on top of him covering his mouth and nose, that he had to push her off of him," added Bowling.
At one point the public defender tried to make the argument that Hill tried to cover her son's mouth and nose to protect him from the smoke from the fire that had just started.
Investigators also interviewed Hill's ex-boyfriend, who told them Hill had sent him a text a few days before. "He indicated that a day or two prior to the fire he received a text message from Ms. Hill stating that she was about to kill her family because he had broken up with her," Bowling testified.
Also admitted into evidence, was a suicide note and will sent to Lemonica Hill's stepmother by Hill postmarked the day of the fire, according to investigators.
