Klokow was charged with second-degree murder after her son Jim Klokow Jr. came forward in 2008 with stories of horrific childhood abuse. The younger Klokow told investigators his mother would regularly beat him as a child until he ran away at age 13.

A criminal complaint says Ruby Klokow has admitted causing the baby's death. The case has been delayed several times since she was charged in 2011. A judge determined Klokow was mentally competent to stand trial.
