KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Corrinne O'Connor, the mother charged in the death of her 5-year-old son who fell out of a 17th-story apartment window in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, in November, was granted a bond modification Tuesday.

O'Connor's initial cash-only $100,000 bond was modified so that she now only has to post 10%.

Her attorney argued the bond set was excessive and that she could not post it, according to court documents. Jackson County Judge R. Travis Willingham approved the modification.

O'Connor's son, Grayson, fell to his death from a 17th-story window at the Grand Boulevard Lofts on Nov. 27, 2023. O'Connor was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child in connection to his death on Dec. 14, 2023.

She was formally evicted from Grand Boulevard Lofts during an eviction hearing, for which she was not present, on Feb. 1.

The eviction petition alleged O'Connor removed the window stops from the window officials believe Grayson fell from.

Tuesday was O'Connor's second court appearance. Her first appearance was on Monday, Feb. 5, when she received her initial bond. She is set to return to court at 2 p.m. on March 4 for arraignment.
