MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - The Manitowoc mother accused of beating and scalding her 5-year-old son who has Down syndrome wants her family reunited.

Ruth Gneiser cannot see the boy or her other son as a condition of her bond. The boys are staying with Gneiser’s parents. The 31-year-old mother appeared in Manitowoc County Circuit Court Monday. She’s charged with physical abuse of a child and causing great bodily harm.

Her attorney, Richard Hahn, says Gneiser wants to see her sons and get her family back together as soon as possible. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1uyqJ7V ) reports a judge is to decide Thursday whether Gneiser will be allowed to see the boys.

The injured son was treated at Children’s Hospital in suburban Milwaukee for bruising and scalding.
