HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Bond is set at $1 million for the mother of a child who police said was traumatically abused by nearly half a dozen adults.

Jamie Pittman, 22, was in court Monday afternoon to face the charge of felony child abuse. This comes after five other people were arrested Tuesday at a home on N. 25th Ave. where her 4-year-old son was allegedly abused.

Bond for the other five suspects was set at $1 million each on Friday. The child as well as other children are now in the custody of DHS.

After her initial appearance, Pittman said she had no idea what was going on, wasn't staying at the residence and sign papers to give custody of her child to Sue Miller, 53,  who was also arrested along with Nancy Miller, 34, Patricia Aguilar, 30, Francys Albertson, 20, and Christopher Lee, 37.
