A Dixon woman accused of killing her 7 year old stepson is now facing more charges.
Tiffany fassler was arraigned in court Wednesday on charges that she put the victim, Colton, in harms way before he died.
Fassler is accused of kicking the boy in the chest back in 2010, making him hit his head, causing brain injuries, which led to his death a year later.
In September, after a thorough investigation, Fassler was charged with killing the boy.
Prosecutors told her on Wednesday if she's found guilty, they'll seek a life sentence.
