MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- The mother of a 2-year-old boy and her two roommates are accused of abusing the child resulting in his death in Manitowoc County.

The three appeared in Manitowoc County Circuit Court Monday where bond was set at $100,000 for each.

WLUK-TV reports a probable cause document says officers responded to an apartment in Two Rivers Friday where the toddler was not breathing. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

The document says the boy had multiple bruises on his body. Prosecutors say the child's mother admitted she and the roommates repeatedly hit the toddler with their hands, a shoe and a belt over the last several months.

An initial appearance is scheduled May 6.
