FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The mother of a two-year-old boy who died with severe signs of trauma and neglect was back in the Allen County Jail Friday night.

Amber Garrett was arrested for violating the terms of her release, according to our Partners in News at ABC 21. She was later released contingent on making a Monday morning court appearance.

Garrett had been out on bond and awaiting trial for two charges of neglect in the death of Malakai Garrett, who police say was badly beaten prior to his November 2017 death.

Her boyfriend, Mitchell Vanryn, was recently found guilty of aggravated battery and domestic battery, but not guilty of murder, in the case.
