Doris Jackson, 23, of the 300 block of Kemper Drive in the Brookmont Farms section near Newark, was listed in good condition at Christiana Hospital, where she was being held for observation. She was placed under police guard after she was arraigned at the hospital Friday night, and was ordered held on $100,000 bail.
Her unnamed son was listed in fair condition yesterday at the hospital's intensive-care unit. The boy weighs between six and seven pounds, according to a hospital spokesman, who declined to say what, if any injuries, the baby suffered.
