TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A northwest Ohio woman who police say caused the death of her 6-month-old son by throwing him has been indicted on a murder charge.

The Blade reports that 25-year-old Amanda Bacon was indicted Thursday by a Lucas County grand jury on charges of murder and child endangering.

Police accuse the Toledo woman of throwing Avery Glynn Bacon against a hard surface, causing multiple skull fractures and brain damage. He died at a hospital Dec. 18.

Police say it's not clear when the abuse occurred. The boy was taken to a hospital early on Dec. 16.

She was being held with a $1 million bond. Jail records didn't indicate if she had an attorney.
