Deana Debrow-Conley denied release from halfway house

The woman charged with the death of her infant son was denied release from a halfway house.

The attorney for Deana Debrow-Conley, 26, asked for her to be released so she could live in Philadelphia with her brother. Debrow-Conley was originally arrested and extradited from Philadelphia. Debrow-Conley’s lawyer said she has been doing well at the halfway house and has gotten a job with Barnes and Noble.

Debrow-Conley was charged with killing her one-year-old son on July 23, 2016 and has been residing n the halfway house for six months. She has not yet been indicted on this charge but the government still has time to bring an indictment.

A judge ruled that she would remain at the house because she couldn’t be supervised in Philadelphia and she is a risk to the community.

Her next felony status conference is scheduled for Sept. 11.
