OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The bond for a woman who is a suspect in a 5-year-old boy’s death was reduced Wednesday.

Antonea Cannon’s bond was reduced from $500,000 to $100,000, meaning she will have to come up with $10,000 to get out of jail.

She has been at the Douglas County Jail since March 3 when she was arrested for intentional child abuse resulting in death.

Her case has also been delayed with pre-trial motions and her motions were pushed back again to September 6.
