Milwaukee: A mother in the United States faces neglect charges after the medical examiner determined her 42-pound teenage son died of severe malnutrition in Milwaukee.

A criminal complaint says Iraida Pizarro-Osorio brought her 16-year-old son to a medical clinic in Milwaukee last week after he became unresponsive. The teen died at the clinic. The complaint says he weighed just 42 pounds (around 19 kg).

Pizarro-Osorio told investigators her son had a genetic disorder, was epileptic, had autism and that his condition impacted his ability to gain weight. She's being held on a $35,000 bond and is due back in court on September 18.
