BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- The mother of a three-year-old child who died last month appeared in court Wednesday.

Danielle Fischer, 22, had her bond reduced from $500,000 to $100,000 on Wednesday.

Police arrested Fischer for Endangering the Life or Health of a Child earlier in April.

Fischer’s son, Robert W. Cramer, died on March 26. Autopsy results show Robbie was struck in his abdomen with such force it caused an internal laceration, which led to sepsis.

Nicholas Compton, 23, of Colfax has also been arrested and has been charged with murder and aggravated domestic battery.

Fischer is next scheduled in court on April 19 for her arraignment.
