Edinburg, Texas (AP) A lawyer for a morbidy obese Texas woman says there's no way his client could beat her nephew to death.
Mayra Rosales weighs almost 1,000 pounds and is bedridden. She was indicted last week on capital murder charges in the death of the 2-year-old. Prosecutors say he died after being struck at least twice in the head.
But her lawyer says Rosales couldn't have beaten the boy because of her limited movement. The boy's mother says it's possible her sister rolled onto him.
Rosales was put under house arrest this week because the county jail has neither a cell that's big enough nor the necessary medical resources. She's required to wear a GPS tracker until her trial.
