A bail amount has been set for a Henderson mother accused of killing her young son.

Jazmin Ramirez, 29, appeared Wednesday morning in Henderson Justice Court.

Judge David Gibson Sr. set Ramirez's bail at $100,000 cash bail and also ruled that she cannot live at home with children.

In court, the state brought up that Ramirez had five arrests for domestic battery from 2012-2015.

The state argued that evidence shows the 2-year-old was beaten to death with a massive brain fracture and that Ramirez did not give doctors the right story on how the child was injured.

Ramirez is eight months pregnant and is currently booked in the Clark County Detention Center.

Public defender Robert Arroyo asked the judge for release or house arrest with reasonable bail, saying the CCDC was not providing proper care to Ramirez.

The judge responded by saying that CCDC has doctors to give proper care.

Ramirez has two other children who will stay with family members.

A c-section has been scheduled for Ramirez on May 5.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 25.
