$100K Bond Set For Woman Accused Of Killing Kid

7/15/11 – A 100-thousand-dollar cash bond was set today for a Madison woman accused of recklessly killing her toddler, because he ate candy-coated gum after she told him not to. 22-year-old Maria Castillo-Dominguez made her first court appearance in Dane County on a charge of first-degree reckless homicide. Three-year-old Luis died two weeks ago from head injuries. Prosecutors said Castillo-Dominguez got upset and threw her boy against a wall in her apartment after he disobeyed her and ate some Chiclets. Police also quoted the defendant as saying she hit her son in the face, after she ordered him to get undressed to take a bath. Police said the boy vomited after the bath, and his father took him to a Madison hospital where he died. Castillo-Dominguez is due back in court July 20th, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
