HENRICO, VA—The case against a Henrico County mother charged with felony child neglect in the death of her infant son will head to a grand jury hearing in March.

Jasmine Norman has been charged with felony child neglect in the February 2012 death of her 2-month-old son. The infant was found dead in an apartment at the Oakmeade Apartments.

Norman waved here right to a preliminary hearing Monday.

According to court documents, Norman told police she was in her kitchen fixing a pizza when she heard her older son crying. When she went to investigate, she says she found her 2-month-old in a "bouncy chair" with a bag over his head.

According to the documents, Norman said the baby was unresponsive and had a bloody fluid on his face, and she ran next door to call 911.

The child was later pronounced dead at VCU Medical Center.

Norman was released on $7,500 bond in May 2012.

In September, the daughter of Jasmine Norman, was found suffering from injuries to her upper body. The child's father Terrell Demond Cook, 23, of Henrico, has been charged with malicious wounding and child neglect. Prosecutors said Norman did not have any involvement in the incident.

Norman is due back in court in March.
