Baltimore County police in Maryland say a South Carolina woman accused of neglecting her 555-pound son's health has been released from the hospital and transferred to the county jail.
Police had taken her to the hospital after her arrest because she showed signs of wanting to hurt herself.
County police spokesman Bill Toohey says 49-year-old Jerri Gray was found with her son, 14-year-old Alexander Draper, at a laundry in the Baltimore suburb of Woodlawn in Maryland on Thursday. Police found them after tracing calls on the mother's cell phone.
Toohey says the mother was charged on a South Carolina warrant for violating a custody order. A video extradition hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Gray told police she won't fight the extradition.
