Western Kentucky mother charged for killing her son

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Scottsville woman being charged with murdering her son pleaded not guilty in a New York courtroom Tuesday.

In New York, the Westchester county District Attorney is accusing Spears of killing her five year old son, possibly with sodium.

Police are investigating whether the case deals with Munchausen syndrome, a disorder where a parent deliberately harms their child to get sympathy for themselves.
