The Haifa Magistrate's Court on Wednesday extended the remand of a woman suspected of trying to euthanize her 17-year-old son at Rambam Hospital.

The mother will undergo a psychiatric evaluation following a court order.

The 53-year-old woman was arrested on Tuesday, after her son, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, told a nurse that his mother tried to disconnect his respirator.
