Kaylene Bowen, who has allegedly previously claimed her son was dying of a genetic disease, fighting cancer and suffering from several other ailments over his lifetime, was arrested on a warrant accusing her of injury to a child with serious bodily injury, The Star-Telegram reported.
Bowen, 34, remains in Dallas County Jail while the boy, whose name is Christopher, and his two half-siblings have been placed in foster care. The boy's father, Ryan Crawford, said he's tried alerting authorities to Bowen's actions previously, but was shut down by courts who sided with her.
"It was always the same story: Christopher is dying," Crawford told The Star-Telegram. "The father doesn't need to be around because he doesn't know how to take care of him. Every time I went to court, they made me feel like I was the worst human ever."
