BETHEL, OH (FOX 19) - A Bethel mother has been charged with endangering children after a nearly month-long investigation into the death of her two-year old son, Jerry Wells.

Krystle Hoskins, 24, had her bond set at $100,000 cash or professional and she will be back in court July 1 for a preliminary hearing. She remains in the Clermont County Jail.

A day after Wells' death, Krystle's husband, 42-year-old Timothy Wayne Hoskins, was charged with child endangering. He is in jail on a $1 million bond.

Wells died June 1 after injuries sustained at his home.

From the beginning, investigators have said the Hoskins' story on how Wells died didn't pan out.

The couple originally told authorities that they were on the couch when they heard the toddler fall down the stairs.

When Krystle Hoskins called 911, Jerry was taken to Children's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  The Hamilton County coroner then contacted Bethel Police stating the toddler's death was suspicious. According to the Clermont County Sheriff's office, non-accidental trauma, including prior bruises were found during their examination. A complete autopsy is due in about a month.

After that revelation and further questioning, it was discovered that Krystle Hoskins was not in the home and when she arrived she says her two-year old was laying on the bathroom floor with his eyes open, unresponsive.

Combined the Hoskins have six children.
