TORONTO -- An west-end mom accused of nearly killing her 11-year-old son by dropping a fridge on him was denied bail Wednesday as her relatives cried in court.
The 32-year-old mother of four lost her bid for freedom and was remanded in custody until Sept. 25 when she'll appear by video at the Ontario Court of Justice .
She is facing charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and failing to provide the necessities of life. She's accused of crushing her son with the 200-pound appliance and then dragging him to her apartment balcony and locking him outside.
The woman's son -- who is battling for his life after suffering major head and abdominal injuries -- is listed in stable but critical condition, Toronto Det. Stephen Laramy said outside court.
Justice of the peace Alfred (Budd) Johnston rejected a bail application made by the woman's lawyer, Gordie Goldman. A publication ban was imposed on the proceedings.
