ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - An Orlando mom accused of killing her toddler will be allowed to live with one of the witnesses testifying against her until her trial, an Orange County judge ruled Friday.
In court Friday, prosecutors said they wanted Victoria Toth kicked out the house. Instead, the judge ordered that Toth and her roommate can not talk about the case.
Toth’s roommate is her boyfriend Johnathan Pursglove’s sister. Pursglove also is in jail facing charges related to the death of Toth’s son last July.
Pursglove allegedly beat two-year-old Jayce Martin. Toth is accused of letting her son suffer for days until he died without any medical attention. Orlando police said at the time they were investigating the boy's death as a "torture case."
Toth also believes the ghost of her two-year-old son is following her around and playing pranks around the house, according to phone calls.
"He has visited us. We know that he's visited us. We've seen the cardinals in the back yard. He's played, played with the light switches here. And, I think it was last weekend," Toth said.
Toth was in court Friday because the judge learned she was visiting Pursglove in prison, which violates her agreement to stay away from her boyfriend as she lives with his sister.
Judge is denying the motion to bar Toth from living with Pursglove's sister. She will be able to continue to live there, but basically has to not talk about the case with her on the honor system. #WFTV— Field Sutton (@FSuttonWFTV) February 22, 2019
Defense says not allowing Toth to live with Pursglove's sister would be cruel: “She lives with the co-defendant’s sister, who’s an adult woman and has a 13-year-old son. It’s the only way she can live.” #WFTV— Field Sutton (@FSuttonWFTV) February 22, 2019
