Bond hearing set for mother of infant who died

Posted: Updated:

A Madison mother facing murder charges for her baby's death could get bond next week.

A bond hearing for Desiree Childers is set for next Thursday. She is in the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail.

On Aug. 30, Madison police and paramedics responded to Childers' home on Oak Brook Circle on a medical call about a possible drowning and found the baby unresponsive.  The child was taken to Huntsville Hospital and later pronounced dead.

After an investigation, the infant's mother, Desiree Dawn Childers was arrested Sept. 3 and charged with murder. The child, 7-month-old Blakley Fairburn was buried last week.
