ND Mother Accused of Son's Death

Posted: Updated:

A judge is deciding whether there's enough evidence to proceed with a murder trial in the case of a Fort Ransom woman accused in the death of her toddler son. 

Jodi Lindvall had a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges of murder and child abuse in the Sept. 22 death of 22-month-old Bentley Lindvall.

Judge Jay Schmitz will issue a ruling later on whether the case moves forward.

Prosecutors say an autopsy determined the boy had been physically abused and died of a head injury.

Court documents indicate Lindvall told authorities her son hit his head while she was struggling to change his diaper, and that she also had seen her live-in boyfriend shake the boy. The boyfriend has not been charged.

Lindvall could face life in prison if convicted.
