CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Records show the mother of a former MUSC patient has received $100,000 after the death of her son in 2015.

In a lawsuit filed two years ago, Antoinette Middleton alleged doctors had neglected her non-verbal autistic son, Corey Andre Middleton, and failed to realize he needed lifesaving medical attention during a routine visit.

He died the same day of his visit on Sept. 22, 2015, just hours later.

Court documents show she took her son to the hospital and told an MUSC psychiatrist that he had been constipated for days.
