The haredi mother suspected of nearly starving her three-year-old boy to death was being questioned by police on Sunday. The mother had failed to appear for her scheduled questioning Wednesday, claiming she felt ill. The boy who was allegedly abused was released from Tel Hashomer's Sheba Medical Center on Friday and placed in the care of relatives, where he will remain until the completion of the legal proceedings against his mother. The woman was reunited with the rest of her family over a week ago, after a Jerusalem court agreed to let her serve the remainder of her house arrest in her own home.
