34-year-old Jillian Meredith McCabe called 911 earlier this month and told authorities that she had thrown her 6-year-old son, London, off a bridge in Oregon. The boy's body was later found. She made her first court appearance this week.

According to witnesses, she walked the little boy, who had autism, by the hand onto the bridge before she, allegedly threw him over the side.

Family friends told KPTV that Jillian had set up a fundraising page at OnYouCaring.com to raise money for her son and for her husband, who is in critical condition with Multiple Sclerosis and a mass on his brain stem.
