Hylton denied bond

A Pulaski County judge Monday declined to set bond for a woman accused of murder in the death of her three-year-old son.
A bond hearing for 38-year-old Lisa Michelle Hylton of Mashburn Avenue in Pulaski was held Monday in Pulaski County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Court officials confirmed the judge denied bond for Hylton.
Hylton is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 2 at 1:15 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the prosecution has enough evidence to forward the case the grand jury.
Even if a charge is dismissed during the preliminary hearing, the Commonwealth’s Attorney can still seek to have it reinstated through a direct indictment from the grand jury.
Hylton is charged with second-degree murder and felony child negelect in the Sept. 30 death of her son, Trevor Kane Hylton. Police allege Hylton was negligent in failing to obtain medical treatment for the child after he apparently ingested a Schedule II drug. Prosecutors contend Hylton knew the child ingested the drug, but still failed to seek medical attention for a period of 14 hours.
The child was taken to the hospital by a Pulaski police officer within five minutes of dispatchers receiving a 4:38 a.m. emergency call to the Mashburn Road residence, but emergency room staff was unable to save him.
Authorities are not releasing the type of drug the child ingested until receiving confirmation from the medical examiner’s office in Roanoke.
