LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A Lawrence woman charged with manslaughter after her 5-year-old son died when he allegedly swallowed opiates has had her bond reduced.

A Douglas County judge on Thursday lowered 25-year-old Rebecca Lynne Wynne's bond from $25,000 to $15,000. Wynne was ordered to live with her father if she is able to get out of jail.

Prosecutors last week charged Wynne with reckless involuntary manslaughter for the death of her son, Joseph Michael Beanblossom. She also faces two counts of aggravated child endangerment involving her two other children, ages 6 and 4.

Prosecutors allege Wynne of stashing illegal controlled substances in the house and the boy died in April after ingesting some pills.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/MUtAnf ) family members have defended Wynne, saying she would not intentionally harm her children.
