CLEVELAND (WKYC) -- The mother charged in the death of her 3-year-old son faced a judge in court Thursday morning.

Judge Pinkey Carr set bond at $2 million for Camilia Terry.

The 20-year-old is charged with aggravated murder in the death of her child, Emilliano.

During the brief arraigment which lasted only a few minutes, prosecutors gave more details on the injuries suffered by Emilliano.

Prosecutors described the child as having blunt force trauma to the head and a skull fracture. It is estimated the child had been dead five to seven days when his body was recovered at a trash facility on Monday night.

The medical examiner hasn't officially determined the cause of death.

Terry said little during the court appearance, except to answer a question from the judge, and looked down for much of the arraignment.

Judge Carr also ordered Terry to have no contact with her other children.

Terry initially told police Emilliano went missing from a Cleveland park on Sunday evening. However, the search soon led to a trash processing facility near Cleveland and turned up the remains of the child wrapped inside multiple trash bags.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has now positively identified the remains found at the trash processing facility as those of Emilliano. The identification was made using DNA tests due to the decomposition of the body.

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for December 6.
