A Hamilton County judge issued a warrant for the arrest of a mom accused of injecting feces in her son's IV after the woman failed to show up to court Thursday.  

Candida Fluty, 35, finally appeared before Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Jerome Metz Friday. The judge withdrew Fluty's warrant as a result of her appearing in court.

Her lawyer told the judge she was tied up in a West Virginia juvenile court on a separate matter, but the judge still issued the warrant for her arrest.

Fluty is under court order to stay away from her 9-year-old son. She is free after posting $50,000 cash bond following her January indictment on charges of felonious assault and endangering children.

Her son has spent most of his life in and out of hospitals struggling with a disease called Hirschprung's that affects the colon.

Prosecutors suspect his illness may have been exaggerated or intensified by his own mother suffering from a mental disorder called Munchausen by proxy.

Fluty will appear back in court on April 29.
