NORMAL, Ill. -- The mother of a Normal boy who was killed last week has been arrested.

Thursday, police arrested 22-year-old Danielle L. Fischer for Endangering the Life or Health of a Child

Fischer’s son, 3-year-old Robert W. Cramer, died last Tuesday morning. Autopsy results show Robbie was struck in his abdomen with such force it caused an internal laceration. That led to sepsis, deadly bacteria invading the body.

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