A woman accused of beating her 20-month-old son to death has been released into custody for signs of posttraumatic stress disorder.

Mireya Balderas was released into the custody of her father, Jesus Balderas, on Monday until the date of hearing.

According to court documents, there is evidence that Balderas is reportedly suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder, and she will be able to obtain appropriate counseling and treatment because of her release.

Balderas has been charged with beating 20-month-old Marcus Balderas to death in April 2012 along with Jorge Perez. Perez is charged with two counts of child endangerment resulting in death, and Balderas is charged with one count of child endangerment resulting in death.

Her trial is set for July 9.
