A South Carolina mother charged with killing her newborn son by putting him in the refrigerator for several hours is expected to appear before a judge on Tuesday.

Angela Blackwell is due to have a bond hearing at Chester County jail, according to Sheriff’s Chief Deputy, Robert Sprouse.

Blackwell (27) was arrested on Monday on a charge of homicide by child abuse. Deputies say Blackwell was at her home on February 27 when she put her four-day-old son in the refrigerator and shut the door. After three hours, she took him out and sought medical attention.

A coroner said the boy, William David Blackwell, died from hypothermia with asphyxiation.
