A central Ohio woman accused of faking a cancer diagnosis for her 4-year-old son has been indicted on felony charges of child endangerment and theft.
Creno was arrested in September and charged with child endangerment. She'll be arraigned Tuesday on the updated charges filed Thursday in Licking County court.
Creno's attorney, Christopher Cooper, had filed court paperwork to pursue an insanity plea on the original charge and a competency evaluation for his client.
Cooper said Thursday he hadn't seen the new indictment and couldn't comment on it.
Court records show Creno's son underwent various medical testing and monitoring that found no problems.
