INDIANAPOLIS — A woman was convicted Friday on six counts of aggravated battery after injecting her son's IV with feces.

Tiffany Alberts was arrested and charged in November 2016 after an investigation found she was injecting feces into her son's IV, which caused bacterial infections and sepsis, according to a press release from the Marion County Prosecutor's Office.

Her son had the IV for ongoing cancer treatments, according to the release.

Investigators were able to determine the feces were causing the bacterial infection after she placed in a room with video surveillance and hospital staff saw her using a syringe to inject something into the IV, according to the release.
