The medical examiner determined that the toddler’s death was caused by a ruptured stomach from a blunt force injury and noted that he had suffered several other contusions to his head and body. Highbear has been in custody since the time of her arrest, with bail set at $1.5 million. Her sentencing has been set for March 7th.
