DILLON, S.C. (WBTW) – A Dillon woman who is charged in connection to the death of her 2-year-old child has been released on bond.

According to the 4th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, Okedia Colvin, 33, of Dillon, was released on bond Monday morning.

A judge determined she is not a flight risk and not a danger to the community as she has no criminal record and she doesn’t have custody of her other children.

She is charged with homicide by child abuse and/or neglect after SLED accused her of not seeking proper medical attention for her son’s malfunctioning feeding tube.

Her family says she would never do anything to hurt her children.
