Mom in court after son dies in pool accident

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

A 7-year-old boy has died and his police are pointing fingers at his mom.

Linda Harden, 34, is set to appear in court Monday on a charge of injury to a child by omission.

On June 21, Houston Police investigators said Linda took her child, Joseph, to a swimming pool despite it being closed off.  Joseph dove into the pool, hitting his head.  

When he didn't surface, EMS crews were called in to transport him to a nearby hospital.  He died on Saturday.

Child Protective Services took custody of Linda's other three children, all under five years of age.  She is 3 ½-months pregnant and is in custody on $100,000 bond.
