MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The Memphis mother accused of abusing and killing her 2-year-old son is now in the hospital, according to Shelby County deputies.

Jermyle Campbell's mother, Raven Campbell, is charged with first-degree murder.

The sheriff's office can't release any other details on her hospitalization due to privacy laws.

Campbell told police that she placed Jermyle underneath a mattress for 20 to 30 minutes, and when she lifted the mattress, he wasn't breathing.

The Memphis Child Advocacy Center is holding a flag-raising ceremony for Jermyle on Monday, June 22 at 10:30 a.m. on the center's front lawn.
