The mom charged with killing her one-month-old son was ordered released to a half-way house Friday.
Deana Debrow-Conley, charged with first-degree murder, appeared in court for her first preliminary hearing. A judge found probable cause for the case to move forward, and a grand jury will hear the allegations against Conley and decide whether to indict her.
According to police, Conley’s infant son was admitted to the hospital on July 19 of last year, after he was found unconscious and unresponsive. The baby died from his injuries on July 23, and his cause of death was ruled blunt neck trauma in December. Last month, Debrow-Conley was arrested in Philadelphia and arraigned on the murder charge in D.C. Superior Court.
She is next due to appear in court on April 7.
