Mother of Damarcus Jackson appears in court

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The mother of a 2-year-old boy who was murdered in October appeared in court on Tuesday.

A very pregnant Latricia Jackson, 22, had a scheduling conference in Judge Norbert Nadal's courtroom.

Jackson is facing an endangering children charge for the death of her 2-year-old son, Damarcus Jackson. Damarcus' father, Antrone Smith, is charged with murder.

Judge Nadal said he wants to talk to the Hamilton County Job and Family Services workers who placed Damarcus back with his biological parents after spending time in foster care. However, Nadal said he won't talk to the workers or begin a trial for Latricia Jackson until Smith's trial is over.

A trial date for Smith has not yet been set.

Latricia Jackson remains at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $150,000 bond. Another court date was scheduled for Feb. 3.
